Air Bud: Golden Receiver is the 1998 sequel to Air Bud. It was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is also the last one to be released theatrically. Outside the United States it was often titled Air Bud 2. It is also the last one to star the original Air Bud, who died of lung cancer in 1998. It is in memory of him.

Plot

Several months after Norman Snivley is sent to prison and becoming Buddy's legal owner, Josh Framm (Kevin Zegers), now a teenager, becomes angry when his mother, Jackie, begins dating Dr. Patrick Sullivan, the town's new veterinarian after a couple of failed dates. It all starts when Sullivan innocently tosses Josh's basketball-savvy dog, Buddy, a football one day, and he discovers that Buddy also has an uncanny ability to play the sport of football. Soon enough, Buddy begins playing on Josh's school football team. Meanwhile, two Russian siblings by the names of Natalya and Popov kidnap Buddy in hopes of having him perform as the special attraction in the Russian circus while Josh runs away when Patrick proposes to his mother. His coach finds him and convinces him that just because Patrick is in his life now, he doesn't have to stop loving his father and he returns home, but Patrick is gone and Buddy is missing.

The Timberwolves are forced to play the final game without Buddy and are unable to win. Buddy and the other animals manage to escape and Natalya and Popov are placed into the custody of the Russian embassy after their van falls into a lake following a chase sequence. Meanwhile, Patrick finds Buddy and takes him to the game. With his help, they catch up, but he is tackled and taken out of the game. They are forced to finish it without him and thanks to Josh and Tommy, they win. Later, Josh stops Patrick from leaving and convinces him to stay. They later go to a football game and Buddy sneaks onto the field.

Rating

Prior to the film's theatrical release, it was originally rated PG by the MPAA (as seen in the original theatrical trailer).[1] However, by the time the film was released in theaters, it was given a G rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, making it the first Air Bud film to have been designated that rating in the United States.
