It Was Just OK, A Few Good Laughs

Space Buddies - the whole Buddies franchise, well it's fun, and it has worn out it's welcome in some ways. A thirteen year old says, yep it was an OK movie (he did laugh a number of times), but it wasn't really that good. Here's dad's take, the earlier versions were better, a bit more engaging, a bit funnier.

There's a lot less dog moving mouth and talking scenes in this one. The CG on the moon, well it's really downright bad. It actually looks like a person with a Macintosh and a couple of hours could have done much better. A ferret talks the dogs back to earth. Nothing about the film is real or believeable, but it's entertainment, so a person can suspend reality for a while.

Daumer from Coach days is the head dunderhead owner of Vision rocket company. And there's a Robert Downey Jr. wanna be that is the villan. The other characters were filler Disney characters. The kids were, as usual chez Disney, cute and smarter than the adults.

It's a pleasant, decently fun movie to watch for an hour and 20 minutes. There's no real rewatch value. Definately PG, and appropriate for just about everyone. There's a moment when the Russian space ship burns up, and it looks like the Cosmonaut (Diedrich Bader from The Drew Carey Show) will burn with it. However, he gets in an escape pod and is launched away. He also drinks some clear liquid and gets very happy. But it's also possible that was water and he was happy because of the music played and his dancing. By the way, Bader is not exactly terribly believeable as a Russian. His accent comes and goes frequently.

All in all, a pleasant movie to watch on a Saturday evening in March where huge snowflakes are unseasonally falling. Kids will enjoy this. Parents will not be annoyed by it. And everyone will get a laugh or two here and there all in a good healthy manner.

The DVD has a bloopers reel as bonus feature.
