5.1??? As bad as all that? I don’t think so!
I really liked Beethoven. Of course it isn’t perfect, it does have a silly ending, the plot does have its low points and the script was a tad weak in places. However, it is a charming, fun and entertaining family movie. I myself am mortified at the 5.1 IMDb rating. I seriously don’t think it is as bad as all that. It isn’t perfect, but it has a sense of fun. The cinematography is lush and very beautifully handled, and the direction was secure. Charles Grodin is an enormously talented actor, and I enjoyed his performance here, and Dean Jones seems to be having fun too. The child actors are appealing, and the music is lovely. I think the real star is Beethoven himself, whoever trained that dog should be told he/she did a wonderful job. With Beethoven, the film is fun, charming and very entertaining. And there are many memorable moments here. All in all, a very pleasant family film, I recommend it. It is not perfect, but it is one of the better family films out there. 7/10 Bethany Cox
Hilarious family fun
I’m a dog lover. I am currently the owner of a 6-year-old yellow lab/beagle mix and a 3-year-old black lab. But I don’t know if I could handle a St. Bernard. One thing I do know, I couldn’t possibly handle a St. Bernard that wrecks the house up and slobbers all over the place. But we enjoy it when it happens in a movie, and that’s precisely what the St. Bernard does in “Beethoven”. This is a often very funny comedy that’s perfect for the whole family. Charles Grodin, who I never thought of as a comic actor, gets to be hysterically funny in “Beethoven” as George Newton, a successful creator of air fresheners who has a wife and three kids. One day a St. Bernard puppy wanders into the Newton household and the kids quickly start to get attached to the pup. Grodin doesn’t want the pup, but the kids talk him into keeping the canine. It doesn’t take long for the big pup to grow to enormous proportions. “Beethoven” at times is pure nonsense to be sure but it’s just too enjoyable to dislike. The dog is wonderful, and there are many good performances throughout. In addition to Grodin, there’s Bonnie Hunt, who’s delightful as Grodin’s wife Alice; Nicholle Tom, Christopher Castile, and Sarah Rose Karr as their three kids; Disney veteran Dean Jones in a surprise villainous role as Dr. Varnick, the evil veterinarian; Oliver Platt and Stanley Tucci as dognappers working for Jones; and (before becoming TV stars) David Duchovny (“The X-Files”) and Patricia Heaton (“Everybody Loves Raymond”) as a business-like couple who secretly plan to take over Grodin’s air freshener business, until Beethoven gives them the ride of their lives (literally). Kids will love this if they can get by the little amount of comic violence and animal abuse. The violence is slight so I don’t think real little kids will get scared. Although the movie does lose a few points for the violence. And a few scenes are a bit ridiculous. Nevertheless, “Beethoven” is alot of fun for young and old alike. A must-see if your a dog lover like me.
