When Josh Framm moves to a new city, he finds it hard to make friends, so he spends his evenings alone shooting baskets at an abandoned basketball court. It’s here that Josh meets Buddy, a runaway golden retriever with a lot of skill.

Party Pooper

Buddy is a trained circus dog who performs tricks at birthday parties, but when his owner, a mean clown named Norm, starts abusing him, Buddy decides he’s had enough and he hightails it outta there. When Josh meets him, Buddy is a dirty, hungry mess, so Josh sneaks the filthy and famished dog home, cleans him up, and convinces his mom to let him keep him.


B-Ball Buddy

Buddy packs some serious moves on the court—he’s an expert guard dog (he plays defense!) and uses his snout to bump the ball into the basket! After getting Buddy dressed for the game (he looks seriously cute in his hightops), Josh joins his four-legged friend on the court to prove that serious teamwork builds solid friendships.


Spin-offs

The original Air Bud spawned a whole slew of Buddies movies like Snow Buddies, Air Buddies and the recent Space Buddies—all of which feature talking dogs. The original Air Bud doesn’t talk, but Air Bud has such a great story, you won’t miss the talking CG effect.


DVD Extras

The DVD comes with a cool silver, army-style dog tag that says “Buddy.” Don’t worry, it’s big enough for you (or your dog) to wear. As for Special Features, the Dog-U-Commentary that lets you run through the movie with The Buddies offering their take on all the action, but the movie itself is what you’ll want to watch over and over since the story is so captivating.
