Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A high-flying dog tale for kids."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"I guess it was a pretty good movie, though I got a little bored halfway through and took a little snooze. I like air conditioning. There was lots of popcorn on the floor."

‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
"A basketball playing Golden Retriever shows his stuff on several high-school basketball courts."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
