Charles Gitonga Maina,
The Golden Reciever picks up where Air Bud left off. Josh, now legal owner of Buddy, now plays football with Buddy instead of Basketball!!! The movie takes place in the same town of Ferfield, Washington. Written by
Nate Gardner <KZegersFan@sugar-river.net>
Fernfield, Washington teenager Kevin Zegers (as Josh Framm) is happy with the golden retriever he adopted in the first "Air Bud" movie. In this sequel, "Buddy" is still top dog on the basketball court - but, now, he will learn to play football just as well. It begins when veterinarian Gregory Harrison (as Patrick Sullivan) gives young Zegers and "Buddy" a football while courting widowed mom Cynthia Stevenson (as Jackie). Of course, Zegers does not want a new man taking the place of his father, who died in a plane crash before the events in "Air Bud" (1997)...
The adults hit it off well, but are reluctant to hurt Zegers' feelings. Also complicating matters is a sub-plot to dog-nap "Buddy" by exotic animal thieves Perry Anzilotti (as Popov) and Nora Dunn (as Natalya). The Russian evil-doers are an obvious swipe of "Boris and Natasha" from the old "Rocky & Bullwinkle" show; but, they are less satisfying here. Better are over-eating coach Robert Costanzo (as Fanelli) and Zegers' fainting pal Shayn Solberg (as Tom Stewart). Veteran comedians Tim Conway and Dick Martin have fun announcing the big game.
**** Air Bud 2: Golden Receiver (8/14/98) Richard Martin ~ Kevin Zegers, Cynthia Stevenson, Gregory Harrison, Robert Costanzo
