Plot[edit]

I just tried to read this, and it made almost no sense for the most part. I was going to attempt an edit, but I can't remember enough of the film to do it any justice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.236.212.63 (talk) 22:17, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

This summary is incredibly dishonest, mainly in that it gives the impression that the dog does not play basketball and is simply present at games as a mascot, or in some other role which is not defined. This makes it totally unclear why there should be such a crisis when the dog has been stolen before the championship game. The fact of the matter is that the team it totally dependent on the dog, which can, as the article rightly notes play basketball(frankly the entire point of the movie), and so his abduction by the alcoholic clown presents a major problem for the team. The article belies the importance of the dog to the team (far more important than simply being a mascot) and leaves readers thoroughly confused. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.68.162.122 (talk) 22:10, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Trivia tag[edit]

Seriously! Somebody wants the fact that Uday hussein liked the movie integrated into the rest of the article? Basejumper 19:59, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

More likely, they want that removed altogether. WAVY 10 17:29, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

You've got to be kidding...[edit]

A movie on dogfighting? Films planned up to the year 2194? I'm 100% sure these are false entries. I'm removing all the way up to the last "citation needed" listing. The S 18:21, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Taken out back and shot!?![edit]

I have no excuses or reason to be looking at this page. In fact I don't know why I'm here or why I continued to read after I realised that this wasn't what I was looking for. Then I started laughing...

"Later, the dog that played Air Bud, also named Air Bud, suffered from acute scabies, and unfortunately had to be taken out back and shot.[5]"

As funny as that is, is it really appropriate for Wikipedia. And is an IGN forum really a valid source? IOwnTheLetterO (talk) 12:26, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Rip off of shiloh[edit]

It should be noted that this is a clear rip off of shiloh. Also, at the end of the film, Air Bud is taken out back and shot reluctantly by the basketball coach because he develops a peptic ulcer in his stomach, and suffers from internal bleeding. The basketball team eats his remains so as to "be apart of him forever" and a 12 gun salute is done by the local Neo Nazi gang. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.118.213.147 (talk) 05:42, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Air Buddies Sequels[edit]

Okay, this really needs to be brought up here. Whoever keeps adding movies to the list of "Air Buddies" movies is obviously delivering some false information. Earlier this year, it said somehwere that a Halloween-related movie called "Scary Buddies" was coming out this year, however, there was never any information on it on IMDb or the Air Buddies website, so obviously, someone made that up. Just today, I noticed that there were three upcoming Buddies movies called The Search for Santa Paws (2010), Air Buddies: Purina Bowl (2011), Air Buddies: Pit Bull stop (2012); once again, none of these have any information on IMDb or the Air Buddies website; I assumed they were not real, so I deleted them. Whoever is adding these titles, please stop, and do not add any more titles to that list unless you have a citation to prove it. -Luckybolt —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.234.178.195 (talk) 20:28, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

sexual metaphor[edit]

Is it worth menntioning in the artical that "Air Bud" is also a slang term for the ladies clitoris in the UK? Ðem Lusty, Lusty Roars!!!! † Speak your beautiful, atrocious mind!!!! 01:56, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Canadian[edit]

No mention of Canada within the entire article! This was filmed in Canada, was produced by Keystone Entertainment, and they even thank Canadian businesses in the end credits. As far as I am concered, this movie is Canadian! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 156.34.128.186 (talk) 16:49, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Special Ed's favorite movie[edit]

If anyone here remembers the prank show Crank Yankers, it is revealed in 2 prank calls that this is Special Ed's favorite movie. Might this be worth mentioning among other things in an "In popular culture" Section? The Mysterious El Willstro (talk) 21:12, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Air Bud as reference to Air Jordan[edit]

I removed a "dubious" tag in the lead section. If there is another reference by the title to anything other than "Air Jordan" who was at the peak of his fame/career at the time of the film's release. 78.26 (I'm no IP, talk to me!) 17:33, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
