Air Bud (1997)
Air Bud, a Golden Retriever, (formerly owned by Norm Snively and named Old Blue) runs away from his owner and finds a home with a 12-year-old boy (Josh Framm). Josh and his family (Mother and younger sister) recently had to relocate their home because of the death of his father, a pilot.
Josh has problems fitting in to his new school. He doesn’t even join in the local park basketball games. After finding an isolated basketball court beside an abandoned church, Bud finds Josh. They bond quite quickly.
Air Bud immediately shocks Josh with the ability to play basketball. Soon Norm Snively discovers that his dog is now famous and he wants Old Blue (Air Bud) returned.
A fun watch.
