Space Buddies is just plain cute and fun. Parents with younger children
don't have a lot to choose from these days and the lack of swearing,
sexual and drug references make it a perfect choice for the little ones
to watch anytime Mom or Dad need a break.
As in all of the Air Bud and Air Buddies franchise films, there are lessons to be learned. Lessons about cooperation, teamwork, friendship and tolerance, responsibility and following rules. Despite all of that the movie is not preachy, the puppies are cute and personable and every child is sure to have a favourite. I especially appreciate that they did not use adults speaking in baby-talk as the voices of the puppies but have child actors doing the voices.
I recommend this movie to parents & grandparents of small children and babysitters everywhere.
Again, I am puzzled by those on this site who review children's movies
as if they should be "Citizen Kane." I just got done watching Space
Buddies with my 6 year old son, and we both fully enjoyed it. The plot,
while inconceivable, was engrossing for my son, and cute for me. There
were enough funny lines and situations to keep both of our interests
throughout the film. We have never seen one of the Air Bud movies, but
will check them out now.
My son's favorite line, being a HUGE "Star Wars" fan, was when the spacecraft was approaching the moon, one of the dogs said, "Ah, it's the Death Star!" My favorite part of the film was Deidrich Bader, who I find funny in anything he's in. Get that guy a TV show, already! Plus, my son enjoyed that Bill Fabberbake was the voice of Patrick on SpongeBob.
If you are a parent looking for a movie, rent this, and enjoy like I did. You shouldn't be disappointed.
Lots of flaws with this movie. But that's not saying kids will enjoy
it, because kids don't care about the Technical stuff. Adults and
Professional Movie reviewers are going to BOMB this movie(like myself),
no doubt, but kids will enjoy this because they do not care about the
Acting Performance's and other movie Essentials. If you take movies
Seriously , you WILL HATE this movie. Uninspired story, forgettable
characters, Terrible and Dull humor, Untrue History, Poor Acting and I
could go on forever! Including all the money for this movie could have
gone to, Cancer research, schools, fire departments etc...
I would have given this movie a 1 but I inched it up to 3 because kids might get a kick out of it.
Thumbs WAY DOWN for me.

i loved the movies space buddies and for people to say and think the way things sound in the movie that just makes you a sick person. its people like you that make all the good descent movies go away. i hope to see more of the buddies. and to the rest of you that don't like this movie keep your comments to yourself some people shouldn't be seen or heard. once again i want to say that space buddies is an excellent movie and im looking forward to seeing santa buddies. and quit the child abuse talk if i ever see this crap about putting babies in a stove or burning a child with a ciggeratte i will report this to some one so please keep it clean.
It sickens me that "supposedly" grown adults have to whine and complain about a KIDS movie. You attempt to apply adult logic to a movie that was intended to be what you hated most about it. If you don't like it, don't watch it. As for my children and I, we loved it and recommend it to anyone (child or adult) who wants a fun, family movie. Most of the movies made today are junk and my wife and I filter what our children watch. It's refreshing to see a movie that is made for children and includes concepts that they can understand. I'm sorry that you have to make yourself feel better by attacking a movie that wasn't "science based" or "had horrible acting" and was intended to be such. Next time you have an opinion, make sure you put it where it belongs, in the trash.

This has got the be the worst talking animal movie I've ever seen.
Space Buddies was a horror. Not a horror movie, just... Ugh. It's like if three years after the semi-realistic "Air Bud: Spikes Back", the creators probably stopped caring about what the franchise is all about and decided to put in talking Golden Retriever puppies, lame fart jokes and less sports. Disney's just becoming lamer and lamer (not to mention greedier and greedier) and more targeted to dumb girls, who care more about looks and voices, than boys (especially with the crappy pop music). I've seen the first two Buddies films, and they were bad, but realistic compared to this.
Buddha is the leader of the Buddies though he doesn't seem Chinese or Hindu at all. You don't even get any proof of his religion. If he were Chinese or Hindu, he'd seem like a fat, Chinese puppy or just a dog that failed at an audition for Roadside Romeo. Rosebud is the girl, B-Dawg is a hip-hop black stereotype (just like his owner), Mudbud is a puppy version of Pigpen from the Peanuts franchise and Budderball is always dressed as a football player, hungry and gassy when his paw gets pulled. C'mon, I've seen much funnier fart jokes! It's just getting old.
OK, on with the plot. Buddha's owner is interested in what the moon is like. Much later, the Buddies sneak into a school bus on a trip to space station Vision 1, where they get to see all the cool things about space. They wear some goofy-looking blue and black outfits, travel onto the space ship (the whole station looks like an airport, but then again the ship acts kinda like an airplane and the whole setting was filmed at an airport in Vancouver, Canada) and set off for a wild adventure through space while their owners find that their puppies are missing. Hey, it was possible with Laika but not with annoying puppies! I mean, weren't these puppies supposed to play sports? It's just another way of Disney asking for money. Walt is probably spinning in his grave.
While in space, the buddies meet up with a Russian dog named Spudnick who wants to see his young owner Sasha but is stuck with Sasha's immature stereotype father named Yuri. Later, they have a walk around on the moon to see what it's like. But will they survive the journey home with the help of a talking ferret at Vision 1 named Gravity? There is hope that they won't!
First of all, the idea is just freaking stupid. It's just like Snow Buddies with elements of Space Chimps, Fly Me to the Moon, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and Good Boy. Second of all, the quotes are just cheesy ("We're lost in space, dog!"), the puppies talk too much, they sometimes speak campy pop culture references ("It's just like a ride on Space Mountain!" "It's the Death Star!") and their computer-generated mouths are the only thing that makes them express themselves, but it doesn't really help. You wouldn't really be able to tell if they're frightened, angry, sad, shocked or happy. It just takes the cuteness away from them, aside from the farts. Films like Beverly Hills Chihuahua had more creativity and emotion! The chihuahuas in that film could actually feel happy, scared, sad, angry or all that stuff. They could even act startled or something like that to show their expression, which Space Buddies doesn't do. For example, when B-Dawg thinks Spudnick is an alien at first, the only way we know he's scared is his dialogue. He doesn't move and his face isn't computer-manipulated enough.
My final word - DO NOT RENT OR BUY SPACE BUDDIES. You just might fulfil Disney's corporate greed and let them make more crappy stuff. Do not even see it online. It's for your own good. Enjoy much better sci-fi or dog movies, such as Star Wars, some of the Star Trek films or 2001: A Space Odyssey or 101 Dalmatians, The Fox and the Hound or Lady and the Tramp. And what the hell is up with the tagline? "One Small Step For Dog. One Giant Leap For Dogkind." See? It's not just the idea itself that makes Space Buddies unwatchable! Usually, I enjoy movies that are stupid when they're meant to be, but this was meant to be funny. It's just not right. Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go and watch WALL-E to calm myself down.

Everyone's been to space, why not puppies... They sneak into a
spaceship while the kids are touring the observation room and all 5
puppies end up in space. They eventually end up at a space station
where they encounter a wild man and his dog. But they all end up fine
back with their kids at the end.
These movies are really getting old, people. I have set through this series and I still have one to go - Santa Buddies (I have to hold off, I can't handle one more). These movies are fun for kids I guess, but they are not fun for anyone over 6. This movie was absolutely horrid.
Robert Vince directed and it has way more C.G.I. than ever before. The only thing I liked about the film was Bill Faberbakke (sp) I loved him in The Stand, I love him on Coach and of course he is the voice of Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants, and who doesn't love Patrick, who once knew an ugly barnacle...
Just avoid this film unless you're one of those rich parents that buy every movie in the world for your brats, then this one will perhaps shut them up for 80 minutes. 1/10 stars

I guess little kids would really love this movie but I just thought it was the same as the rest. It's predictable and has a lot of lame fart jokes in it. It's about some dogs who accidentally go off into outer space and a ferret has to tell them what to do in order to get home. The puppies also meet another dog on a space station and there is some guy with a funny chin trying to mess up the path of the space ship. So if you are looking for something where you don't have to think too much and you just need to laugh, then this would be a pretty good movie. It's a good movie if you like dogs and ferrets too. That guy from "Coach" is in it but he plays more of a serious guy.
