I'm way biased on this type of movie. Anything at all with hockey in it I love. But really this movie kicks arse. (I'm doubting IMDb will let me use the other word).
If you play hockey, or you have kids that do, you gotta get this movie. It may not have the best acting in the world, but you won't be bored at all. That Air-Bud kid, Zegers, is a good actor. From Canada too I understand so naturally I'm biased there too. He could use a little work on hockey though. Come see me Zegers, we'll get you in shape & work on those slap shots eh.
I really like animal movies too, so again bias comes in. That chimp in this movie really moved along. You just had to feel for him. I wonder if he really skated that good or if it was effects.
Now some people have picked on this movie a tad, and that's their right, but it's supposed to be a fun movie made for kids, and it shouldn't be judged by standards set for bigger productions. This WAS a fun movie and every kid I know (especially me) had a good time watching it.
Hey, if you liked this movie, there's another good kid hockey movie about a kid who is a genius and makes some weird device under the ice rink that makes people float or whatever. The ice breaks apart during a game too. Awesome. Can't think of the name of the movie though.
