Who would have thought Air Bud would spawn so many sequels and spin off’s. One of Disney’s proverbial cash cows now adds Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws, a heartless straight to video affair that tries to hard to be cute and over does it in the touchy feely category. Even the bonus features came off marketed. Quite a dip after Snow Buddies which had both heart and a sense to stray from redundancy in plot. Both this film and Snow Buddies were written and directed by the same person oddly enough. Even the cost ($24.49@Amazon) doesn't help me find a silver lining.

QUALITY:
Picture has some blurring at the start of the film, maybe having more to do with CGI rendering but that flaw only last a few minutes before the film comes into true high definition clarity. Sound quality is fantastic though the film wasn’t really created for that purpose in mind.

BONUS FEATURES:
*Sing Along To Christmas Carols With The Buddies
*Santa Clause Is Coming To Town Music Video
* DVD Version

Both bonus features might rouse a laugh or two out of the little ones but after one sitting its more then enough unless you’re a hardcore dog lover.
