RUSSELL MADNESS Blu-ray Review....

The Talking Dog-Loving Team that has Dressed-Up Pets for Generations
Including Air Bud and Air Buddies … Debuts an Exciting All-New Family Film!

RUSSELL MADNESS is produced by Air Bud Entertainment, the creative force behind the #1 live-action, direct-to-video movies in the family category. The exciting, action-packed adventure introduces ‘Russell,’ a talking (and costume-wearing) Jack Russell Terrier who accidentally becomes a professional wrestling superstar, on the way to discovering the true power…of family.

The film stars John Ratzenberger (‘Toy Story,’ ‘Cars,’ TV’s Cheers), Fred Willard (TV’s Modern Family) David Milchard (TV’s Convos with my 2-Year Old), Mason Vale Cotton (TV’s Mad Men), McKenna Grace (TV’s Crash and Burn) and John Hennigan (former WWE star) along with the voices of talking animal stars including Will Sasso (TV’s ‘MadTV’ and ‘The Three Stooges’) and Sean Giambrone (TV’s The Goldbergs). RUSSELL MADNESS is directed by ‘Air Bud’ and ‘Buddies’ veterans Robert Vince, written and produced by Robert Vince and Anna McRoberts.


RUSSELL MADNESS tells the story of Russell, an undersized but big-hearted terrier who dreams of having a family of his own. After running away from his current pet store residence, Russell gets taken in by The Ferraros, a family desperate to revive their grandfather’s pro wrestling arena. That’s when they discover their new pet pooch has incredible wrestling skills. With help from his coach, Hunk, a savvy and hilarious monkey, Russell rockets to the top of the pro wrestling world and becomes a famous sports superstar. But when a dishonest promoter double-crosses the Ferraros, Russell will face his biggest challenge and discover that the strongest tag team is family. RUSSELL MADNESS is rated ‘PG’ by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

Our Review:

We are all dog lovers in our house! We enjoy watching the Air Bud movies. Russell Madness is a good family movie from the creators of Air Bud. This movie has a jack russell that becomes a world famous wrestler. Russell is in a pet store waiting to be adopted. Every time a kid picks him up and wants to take him home, he pees on them LOL. It's so funny to see the look on their face when that happens. When he finds out he is going to the pound because nobody wants him, he runs away and ends up meeting the Ferraros. They take him in as part of the family and then his wrestling career begins.

I love the monkey named Hunk. He is so cute and decides to be Russell's trainer. I loved when the little girl in the family first meets Hunk, she talks him into having a tea party with her. He is in a little dress with her around the table pretending to drink tea. It was sad to see a wrestler cheat to beat Russell in a match. He pulled a dog whistle out and started blowing it so Russell was helpless. You'll have to watch the movie to see how Russell out smarts him in the final match to win the championship when he pulls out the dog whistle again. It's brilliant! There are so many funny parts in this movie. I highly recommend it!

There are some fun special features too. We liked watching "raising the woof, training Russell". There is also a gag real that is pretty funny and a five little monkeys sing-along.
