Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A high-flying dog tale for kids."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media

‑ 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
