Buddy, the sensational real-life hoop hound with 22,000 career baskets under his collar, stars in this hilarious and touching Disney comedy critics cheered as irresistible family entertainment! When Josh Framm, a 12-year-old boy, finds himself in a new city with no friends, he's too shy to try out for the basketball team. However, while practicing, he meets Buddy, a runaway golden retriever, who surprises him with his ability to score baskets. Josh and Buddy eventually make the school team, and the dog's extraordinary talents spark a media frenzy - one that attracts Buddy's greedy former owner (EVENING SHADE's Michael Jeter), who wants to cash in on the dog's notoriety. Boy and dog must keep one step ahead of the brute - while at the same time rallying their school team to the state finals!
