When the original AIR BUD movies started rolling out, I’d missed them due simply to my age at the time, and not yet being a parent. In recent years, I’ve caught up a bit, checking out some of the original films and their more recent “Air Buddies” spin-offs (thanks to Netflix), each a reminder that kids love talking animals. Now comes RUSSELL MADNESS, a new film from Air Bud Entertainment that takes the franchise in a new direction and an entirely different world: professional wrestling. Having seen the film way early (a full review is forthcoming), I can attest to the fact that it’s an adorable new tale for kids of all-ages. With New Year’s Eve this week, it’s time to make those New Year’s Resolutions, and for many it’s to get in shape. After all, if a tiny terrier can do it, so can you!

Trivia: Actors David Milchard and Matty Finochio both have appeared in the viral hit CONVOS WITH MY 2-YEAR-OLD (now CONVOS WITH MY 4-YEAR-OLD), as well as the recent JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2. Yes, Milchard is the 2/3/4-year-old.

About RUSSELL MADNESS: Coming to theaters on February 21 via Fandango and home entertainment this spring, 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 pet store, 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.
