3 stars. Definately a childrens movie. Ordered it for my 9 year old grandson who was visiting. He liked it. The acting was good for unknowns. Was a cute story with good values worked in.

Not a good movie for children!!!
C. Stephans | 12/28/2004

"This purports to be a fun children's movie about a dog playing soccer and an orphan fitting in with his new family. Instead, it has an evil twist that includes a demonic dog catcher that terrorizes the canines and mean-spirited children being nasty to other kids. I ended up fast forwarding to only the dog playing soccer parts; the other parts were either too stupid, scary or ill-conceived to let my daughter watch them. I don't know why a child's movie has to have such cruelty and nastiness.

Besides the above, the plot and dialogue is terribly crafted. This is one I would definitely avoid--regardless of the cute cover that appeals to children."

"As much as I wanted to like SOCCER DOG THE MOVIE, when it was over, I felt very little. The premise is cute but the execution of the movie was so ill-conceived that in its attempts to be a canine ROCKY, all we get is some bad one-liners, an inept cast, and a movie that seemed much longer than its ninety minutes. Jeremy Foley tries hard as the orphan taken in by former orphan James Marshall and Olivia d'abo. But the movie is filled with so many distractions that it loses its energy early and never gets it back. The addition of the three stooges at the DMV is preposterously unfunny; Billy Drago's demonic dog catcher merely a boring plot device; and the ultimate soccer game has little tension or excitement. Lincoln's return to his original owner is also a letdown, and the addition of the new golden retriever only sets up the unnecessary sequel.
While the family may enjoy it, I don't think adults will find it stimulating, so let the kids watch it alone."
Abysmally Bad Movie

"Where to begin?! I don't normally write reviews, but this movie was so remarkably bad that I couldn't remain silent. The plot is thin, the acting is awful, the writing is worse. Save your time and money! If you MUST watch a movie about a dog playing soccer, go for the "Air Bud" version."
