What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Russell Madness is another entry in the Air Bud franchise, a series of movies in which adorable talking dogs are endowed with super athleticism. This time around, it's a Jack Russell terrier whose forte is wrestling. Expect plenty of match-related takedowns, airplane spins, atomic drops, and fierce smashes to the mat, as well as shots of dogs peeing and burping. Kids who aren't worried about grown men being thrown, pounded, kicked, and smashed over the head by boards might still be bothered by some scenes in which the dog hero and his monkey accomplice are in danger. Russell is choked, spun and thrown, and slammed, but remains unscathed.
