    The story begins as Richard Newton, his wife Beth, daughter Sara and son Brennan prepare for a cross-country drive to a family reunion. For Richard, it's a dream vacation. For his family, it's boredom on wheels - until the appearance of a surprise passenger: the huge, rollicking, slobbering, lovable dog, Beethoven. Richard has promised to take Beethoven to the reunion and deliver him to his owner, Richard's brother. Beth and Brennan are less than thrilled with this news, especially when the excitable Beethoven unleashes a string of canine calamities! But when two bumbling thieves threaten the safety of the Newtons, it's Beethoven who sets out to put the bite on the bad guys and forever win a place in his new family's hearts.

    1.0 out of 5 stars "Full House" with a bigger dog March 15, 2001
    Format:DVD
    There is only so much you can do with fifteen minutes of dog footage, and a two hour feature film is not a viable option. Granted it is difficult to make a movie for children when your main premise has been done before - and better - but the direction of this film was disastrous, apparently relying solely on a few moments of animal appeal as salvation. Still, indications are that young children do enjoy the film; young girls will identify with the daughter's plight to be heard, young boys will get a laugh out of the recurring poop and fart jokes, and some of both will cheer Beethoven when he gets to make his brief appearances. Adults, however, will only derive pleasure from the children in the audience.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven tragedy January 21, 2002
    A Kid's Review
    Format:VHS Tape
    I have always loved the other beethoven movies but this is WORST! The 4th one was great, but ugh! this one is [bad]! the director put NOT ONE BIT of taste or brains into this one, he/she just wanted to make "another beethoven movie to get it over with". Don't buy this. save your money.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Another insulting piece of junk. March 8, 2003
    Format:DVD
    I put off seeing the original "Beethoven" for a long time due to the fear that it wouldn't be suitable for anyone over the age of 6. Instead, it turned out to be a funny, cute and fairly smart family movie. It was a nice surprise.
    That brings us to "Beethoven's 3rd". The actors from the first two films in the series are gone. They are actually replaced by another group of talented and enjoyable actors (Judge Reinhold, Julia Sweeney, Joe Pichler & Michaela Gallo). Sadly, that's pretty much where the compliments end.
    The screenplay treats the viewer as if they have been in a state of arrested development since they were a toddler. You get the usual "hit in the crotch" and "sprayed with poop" scenes that these lowbrow movies love so dearly. I am also floored by how many times an action scene is either played in slow motion or fast motion. Over and over and over again. Perhaps it's meant to distract us from the fact that this movie sorely lacks a decent plot or any worthwhile humor. It doesn't work.
    I truly recommend seeing the charming original "Beethoven" but stay far, far away from this poor sequel.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Roll over Beethoven February 18, 2003
    Format:DVD
    Straight to video nonsense with Beethoven returning once again with a new batch of cutesy puppies. Wondering why the original cast are missing? Simple- the new family are their relatives and have been so kind as to take care of Beethoven.
    The only recognisable actor in the film is Judge Reinhold who plays the father in the family. Beethoven's 3rd is basically a film which trys to act as an improvement and replacement on the original Beethoven movie. In the end though, it just proves to be completely unnecessary and ridiculous.

    1.0 out of 5 stars This 3rd sequal is not worth it! June 24, 2003
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    I watched this third sequal right after seeing the two original movies and it was not what I expected. I love Beethoven 1 & 2 but this sequal was boring and ridiculous. The original cast are gone and the new characters are just boring. The villians in this movie are really stupid. The only interesting thing about this movie was looking at Beethoven. This movie really wasted my time and I suggest saving your time and money. Not funny or interesting at all!!! Anyway I can't wait to see the fourth one though!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars just plain fun June 3, 2005
    Format:DVD
    I don't know why so many people have a problem with this movie. Maybe the lack of gratutitious sex, violence, and foul language. Maybe they just need to get in touch with their inner child. It's just good clean fun, and I can watch it over and ever.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pleasure September 25, 2005
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I take great pleasure in the ridiculous situations which arise in this family and the dog. They make me laugh. I find this dog pleasant and congenial, so I love every one of his films.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Strictly a family movie, but not fun to watch July 26, 2003
    Format:DVD
    I haven't watched the original Beethoven or its immediate sequel. This third installment is a big letdown. OK, maybe it's because I'm a grown-up. Kids did like it. But I found the acting amusingly terrible, esp. the phony performance put up by the wife. The kids are not even likable. The Penny girl is kinda pretty but not particularly convincing. The two villains are the bright spots besides the dog (or the three dogs that play Beethoven), but after about 60 minutes, nothing in this movie has any redeeming value left. I pretty much fast-forwarded the last 20 minutes of this 90-minute film.

    I didn't like this movie. The original 1 and 2 were better. After those two, the dog gets annoying. Also, I liked the actors better in 1 and 2.
