Movie Info

In this Disney film, Hank Cooper (Ed Asner) the owner of a losing professional football team, recruits Gus, a Yugoslavian soccer player, to his team. Even though Gus is a mule, he figures the animal can be taught to make field-goal kicks. Despite the outrage of his team, and sabotage efforts by Crankcase, Spinner and Gwymm (Tim Conway, Tom Bosley and Harold Gould), Gus the Mule kicks his team all the way to a championship. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Gus

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

As I say, this is a decently average Disney film, with a few funny parts and other parts where you would agree to smile if you could.

May 9, 2005 | Full Review…

Disney continues to make movies like "Gus" and people continue to pay to see them, but the process seems futile and this time even the mule seems bored.

Kids will get a kick out of this mule tale.
