Devin Douglas Drewitz,
In this spin-off of the Air Bud franchise, five pups follow an ice cream transport truck to a plane and end up flying with the ice cream shipment to Alaska. There they find a pup friend and a boy who needs five dogs for a big race.
Josh is off to his first year of college and Buddy has stayed behind with Andrea and the rest of the family. Andrea, attempting to fit in with her junior high classmates, decides to join the baseball team and along the way discovers that Buddy is a talented baseball player. Just as the season is settling in, a terrible discovery is made - Buddy's puppies have mysteriously started disappearing with the help of kidnappers' little helper, Rocky Raccoon. He must find them and make it to the major leagues as he goes to bat for the Anaheim Angels! Written by
My one line summary is actually a quote from a 'Family Affair' web site, but it does reflect what made the biggest impression on me. Though Caitlin didn't show the talent she demonstrated, along with Tim Curry, in her TV series, she made Angela adorable and someone to care about. This, to me, was really a movie about a girl's adjustment to junior high, not a movie about a baseball-playing dog. The plot about the dog and his offspring--who a professor wanted to kidnap in order to create a 'superdog'--seemed secondary. Though the kidnap plot did add some excitement.
It was a funny and touching movie and good clean family fun. Well, not quite clean. Baseball players do get their uniforms dirty. Then there was that incident in Home Ec class. And let's not forget the hogs!
