This 1993 sequel to the St. Bernard hit finds big, fluffy Beethoven now at home with gruff-but-lovable dad Charles Grodin, supermom Bonnie Hunt, and their three kids. The story continues with Beethoven falling for a female St. Bernard and having a litter, unbeknownst to Grodin, while the new dog's owner (Debi Mazar) starts angling for benefits from this union. The larger dog pool certainly adds more cuteness and laughs to this follow-up, and Grodin and Hunt--consummate professionals--don't let sequel-itis lower their energy or their wonderfully idiosyncratic way with dialogue. Mazar brings her own edge to the proceedings, too, but in the end, the film's accent is still very much on a feel-good experience for everyone. --Tom Keogh

This is a funny and adorable movie. We actually like it better than the 1st one. The theme is love instead of violence like the 1st. We laugh our heads off many times during the movie. My kids are five and four.

i watched Beethovens 1st 2nd and 3rd and i got to say this is the best one ever. This movie is about beethoven finding a mate, but the girl (missy) gets taken away by an evil dog napper. Beethoven saves her and she had puppies, but the dog napper soon takes missy away again, now its up to the newton to save the puppies from being drowned, our worse.
I liked this movie because i like dogs and adventures, the puppies are so cute and i cant believe anyone would like to drown them,
before i go i would like to recommend this movie to anyone who likes animals, even if your not a big animals fan you still gotta see this movie

Now that the lovable St. Bernard Beethoven is enjoying life with his new masters,the Newtons,he begins to start a family of his own,biologically. Beethoven impregnates a female St. Bernard named Missy and the canine couple sire four puppies. One of is named Tchaikovsky,after another late classical music great. First,George Newton(Charles Grodin) objects to Beethoven in the Newtons' home,then objects to the mutt's offsprings. The Newton family agreed to find homes for the puppies after they've grown. George's wife Alice(Bonnie Hunt) is now working with her husband at his air freshener factory. One memorable scene is where the Newtons take a vacation up in the mountains,with Beethoven in tow,of course. Missy belongs to a mean-spirited young woman named Regina(Debi Mazar) who is going through a divorce. After the divorce is final,Regina's now-ex-husband is granted sole custody of Missy. The ex-hubby and Missy visit the Newtons in the last scene. This film would one of Grodin's last. Subsequently,he co-starred with Martin Short in CLIFFORD. Grodin's previous films include SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES,IT'S MY TURN,MIDNIGHT RUN and TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.

Great feel-good movie. A real puppy-lovers delight. For once, the fine actors and the family story add to the film. This is much softer and less "dark" than the first Beethoven. Much better for the very young. Highly recommended.

Beethoven's 2nd follows the story of Beethoven, the giant St. Bernard. Beethoven is a very large, slobbery dog who often comes into conflict with his owner (Charles Grodin), and this movie follows the dog as he falls in love with another large dog. A stork brings by puppies, and Beethoven becomes a father. Unfortunately, Beethoven's wife (girlfriend? fiance? mate?) is in the middle of a custody battle between an owner and his evil ex-wife. Even by Beethoven's standards, the plot here is thin.

Beethoven is a good movie -- it's funny, and it's just campy enough to make even the most serious moviegoers crack a smile. Unfortunately, Beethoven's 2nd just isn't as good as the first. Where the first movie has plenty of funny dog-centric humor (a muddy Beethoven shaking on his owner's bed, for example), this installment seems a bit more interested in the interactions in the family and between the adults. Unfortunately, the family dynamics never really congeal like they do in the first, and all it does is serve to frustrate those looking for the same laughs the first movie carried. If you really loved Beethoven, I'd recommend skipping on this one (maybe going to the third movie) or just watching the first over again.

Maybe it's the change of director (Rod Daniel, director here, did not direct the first), but this movie is uneven. There are some really bizarre moments as well: One of the family's daughters is almost sexually abused, but luckily Beethoven is able to pull down an entire water-side cabin to save her.

I usually try to find free streams of movies online but could not find this movie with good quality (or one at all). Movies via Amazon prime is easily the best thing ever. I can buy any movie, even if it's super hard to find online and not available on redbox. Great quality!

This is a great family movie. I have no clue why someone would say it is not suitable for children. That is crazy. My kids love each one of the Beethoven movies and we have watched each many times over. You can rest assured this movie is great for the entire family.

My grandchildren love the first Beethoven movie and now they enjoy this one also. Fortunately both are entertaining for adults as much as for the kids since I have had to watch them over and over again. They never get tired of these movies. Nothing tops the first Beethoven though.
