Air Bud: Golden Receiver

This sequel to the 1997 film Air Bud is a family and pet friendly football movie. Can you guess what this movie is about? If you guessed it is about a dog that can play football, you’re right! It isn’t only about football though, a family also learns how to grow closer together—so, it’s a nice, feel good movie.

Angels in the Endzone

This 1997 film is a sequel to Angels in the Outfield. A football team is having an awful year, until a miracle happens with angels in the endzone. Not only do the angels helps the football team, they also help a family rocked by tragedy heal. Make it a weekend event, and also get the movie that follows this one: Angles in the Infield.

Little Giants

This 1994 family comedy might be a bit dated, but it is still a fun movie to watch. Two adult brothers compete at coaches of pee wee football teams in a small town. Basically, a team of misfits is up against the “good” team. Will the Little Giants beat The Pee Wee Cowboys? Will two brothers reconcile? You’d better rent the movie to find out.

Gus

This 1976 Disney film stars Ed Asner, Don Knotts, Gary Grimes, and Tim Conway. Gus is a football kicking mule. Travelling all the way from Yugoslavia (yeah, it’s an old movie) with his owner, Gus goes from team mascot to a member of the California Atoms. Hey, it turns out that Gus can kick 100 yard field goals. Gus helps the team, and lifts the spirits of Andy, his owner.

The Game Plan

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might not be at the top of your list of people you would expect to see in a family friendly movie, but here he is. This cute Disney film is about an NFL quarterback who has to learn how to be a parent to the 8 year old daughter he just found out about. Happy watching.
