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.

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

    What is not to love about Beethoven? This movie shows his big break into fame. Of course he is still causing mishap and fun. Another great family-friendly movies about the beloved Beethoven. We loves all of the Beethoven movies. You can't go wrong with this big lovable guy.

    This movie is such a delight! One of the most enjoyable family films I've seen in a long time. I'm familiar with the Beethoven franchise but hadn't heard of this installment until yesterday when I caught the film on On Demand. Hands down this is the best Beethoven installment ever! It's funny, touching and there's even a little romance mixed in.

    The premise is that greedy and bitter Hollywood animal trader Stan, concocts a devious plan to kidnap Beethoven for money and revenge once he is kicked off a film and replaced by Eddie (Jonathan Silverman) who's new dog Beethoven becomes the movie's new star. From the first scene this film is a continuous laugh fest with twists and turns and cameos galore!

    What's great about this one is the cast with some well-known faces mixed in! All of the characters are wonderful. Jonathan Silverman plays Eddie with the right balance of charm and goofiness. Even when he rants about Beethoven we can tell he really cares about the pooch. The actor who played Eddie's son was very impressive as well. The actress who plays Silverman's offbeat love interest was the perfect match to Silverman's Eddie with her cookiness and crazy outburts. The man who played Stan had me in stitches and comedy legends Rhea Pearlman and Eddie Griffin are superb. Even Joey Fatone has a small role as one of the bumbling dognappers who try to steal Beethoven. But the winner of them all was the dog himself. Beethoven steals the show once again!

    Great cast! Great writing! Tons of laughs and enjoyable for the whole family!

    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.

    We already have the previous 5 Beethoven movies. Originally saw this in the movie theater and had to add it to the Beethoven collection. The movie is funny and holds your attention. You do not need to watch the other movies first to enjoy this one. I hope the make more!

    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. :)
