Not again! Really common, how many of these have they made?
17 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is truly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Compared to the other "Air Bud" movies in this series, this one really makes you think, who wrote it? Plus you know that none of the these movies would ever happen in a million years. I know that the marketers and producers aim for it to be a "fun family film", and for kids to enjoy it, but I was a kid when I first watched these movies and I have to say that I wasn't amused, and I'm pretty sure that not many of the other kids that saw it were either. I have to admit though when I heard that they were coming out with one that had volleyball as the premise, I was curious to see it, being a volleyball player myself. Though I regret that I did because it was such a stupid film. The acting was mediocre, the plot and ending were so obvious, and not to mention every time Bud is playing any of the sports, it looks so fake. I don't know how someone could really pitch this story to a producer or company, because the plot is exactly the same as the other "Air Bud" movies, except there is a different location, and a different sport. I really suggest not renting this video.
