Rating: 4/10 -- A family comedy about a wacky & destructive St. Bernard that is totally without any merit whatsoever. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
A waggish tale of canine chicanery, an uproarious if impawsible symphony of drool, doggy fidelity and chewed shoes. Full Review
Beethoven is no classic, but it's a sunny, energetic children's film with a good notion of what young audiences like.
New York Times
Elevated from the doldrums of Digby-esque sentimentality by a surprisingly bouncy script, the film is also redeemed by regular interludes of acerbic dialogue and a brace of fine supporting performances. Full Review
Rallies at the end to prevent chaperoning adults from feeling their time was completely wasted. Full Review
Every moment fits neatly together in an almost machined way. But the time lopes by and a few of the sequences prove oddly delightful. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- A safely banal concoction in the tradition of the bland live-action Disney features cranked out during the Magic Kingdom's dispirited years after Walt's death. Full Review
Mr. Newton, head of a suburban family of five, who thinks the best pets are goldfish, keeps his family running in an orderly fashion. That is until their entire lifestyle is disrupted by the antics of an enormous but beguiling St. Bernard named Beethoven.
A runaway St. Bernard puppy is adopted by a suburban family despite the protestations of their uptight father. Of course, the rambunctious little thing grows up to be a slobbering mountain of a dog. But the troubles don't stop there: an evil veterinarian plots to steal "loveable" Beethoven for his own twisted experiments, while a conniving yuppie-couple scheme to take over Dad's business. But it's good old Beethoven to the rescue -- he'll save the day!
