Quotes

[first lines]
Spudnick: Dreams are like stars. You can't touch them, but if you follow them, they will lead you to your destiny. I used to dream of being the first dogronaut to walk on the moon. And now, I dream of going home to my boy, Sasha.

Kinda dumb and cute and harmless
3 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You gotta rate these things from the perspective of what you expect. This is Direct-To-Video so it competes with stuff like "The Wild" or "The Reef." Kids direct-to-video is a wasteland of unwanted, unwatchable horrors. So imagine my surprise at these "buddies" movies. I mean, they aren't bad. The plots are coherent, they have some legit jokes kids and adults will find funny, and the cinematography and effects aren't awful.

Look, it's all fluff. It ain't Rob Roy or Mystic River. The kid actors are pretty bad. But the direction and casting are pretty good. A lot of these kiddie features become a mess plot-wise but the buddies movies stay on course. Adults won't cringe watching this stuff, it's totally palatable in a stupid sort of way.

Great for kids up 10, after that I suspect they'll lose interest.
