Editorial Reviews

Beethoven is back and he's about to get his big Hollywood break and perhaps find a new family in the process. Lizard trainer Eddie (Jonathan Silverman) has a very no-nonsense attitude toward animals: they are a business investment, not pets. Eddie's son Billie (Hannah Montana's Moises Arias) yearns for a dog of his own, but his father refuses to bend his no-pets policy, even when Billie rescues a huge St. Bernard from the city streets. Billie quickly dubs the dog Beethoven due to the dog's fascination with a televised concert of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and Eddie grudgingly agrees to let Beethoven spend one night at the house. When a movie-star dog is dognapped, Eddie is fired, but in a fluke is hired as head animal trainer when the film's director, Stanley (Eddie Griffin), and producer Patricia (Cheers'Rhea Perlman) choose Beethoven to replace Frizzy in the film. As Beethoven worms his way into the home and hearts of Eddie and Billie, show writer Lisa (Jennifer Finnigan) starts hanging out at their house to rewrite the show and Billie and Eddie have never been happier in their lives. When Beethoven is dognapped, Eddie, Billie, and Lisa learn a lot about themselves, what comprises a family, and what's really important in life as they battle to save Beethoven. This film is full of hilarious escapades by the lovable, overly exuberant Beethoven and is appealing to the entire family despite its PG rating for some mild rude humor. For the serious Beethoven fans, Beethoven's Dog-Gone Best Movie Pack contains all six Beethoven movies including Beethoven's Big Break . --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Fall in love with the big-hearted, slobbering 185-pound St. Bernard, Beethoven, in this howl-arious adventure that features an all-star cast, including Jonathan Silverman (Weekend At Bernies), Rhea Perlman (Cheers), Moises Arias (Hannah Montana), Stephen Tobolowsky (Heroes), Oscar Nuñez (The Office), Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer), Joey Fatone ('N Sync) and Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother). Although animal handler Eddie (Silverman) works with lots of creatures, he has a strict NO PETS ALLOWED policy and won’t let his son Billy keep adorable stray dog Beethoven and his family of puppies. But when dog-nappers steal the canine star of the movie Eddie’s working on, the studio big shots must quickly find a replacement and unexpectedly cast the lumbering canine as their next big star. Through his rambunctious antics and larger-than-life personality, Beethoven not only crashes into Hollywood but into Eddie’s heart as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars loveable dogs February 2, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Have you seen the Beethoven movies out prior to this one, they were all excellent. Dogs and puppies do get into lots of mischief as you know if you have ever had a dog. This movie is no exception, these cute little puppies are just as mischievious as the puppies in the earlier movies, perhaps more. It is an excellent family movie and I would recommend it for a nice family movie night full of laughter and fun loving puppies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Funny Family Movie May 4, 2009
My 3 year old daughter absolutely loves this movie. The comedy is very easy to get for youngsters. However, the movie is not cleverly written and the ending is quite predictable, especially since this movie shows how Beetoven became the star of the first Beetoven movie. However, it's still a cute movie for the family.

1.0 out of 5 stars the worst... June 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
not a good Beethoven one at all. Purchased because Cesar Milan was supposed to be in it and he has one or two lines that look so stilted and one that looks like he is talking to himself with a green screen so the other actor can be put in later. a real disappointment for a film in any case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good-according to the 9 year old buyer. February 5, 2009
By rrh
If you have heard of Betthoven and love the other movies, buy it. My DD, dear daughter, bought this movie with her allowance. She loved the other movies and loves this one as well. This movie was worth it. I think I might have to share the cost of the movie. :)
