Beethoven, as he is named, grows into a giant of a dog... a St Bernard. Doctor Varnick, the local vet has a secret and horrible sideline, which requires lots of dogs for experiments. Beethoven is on the bad doctor's list.Written by

Let us take you out to dinner. Are there any good restaurants in this burg?
Ah, restaurants, uh...
Why don't you just come over to our house, we can barbecue.
Come to our house, we'll barbecue.
Barbecue? Let's live dangerously.
Well, our food may not be great but it's not dangerous!
Well, I hope it's better than this espresso!

As the end credits finish, a short scene plays of Beethoven standing on a rock, silhouetted against a sunset. He barks as the credits end. See more »
If you love funny animal films, you will laugh till you cry at the antics of Beethoven and his human companions. The scene where the children are trying to find a name for the dog is cute and if you like classical music you will appreciate the humor behind how the name is finally derived. I was rather surprised to see Good Guy Dean Jones, star of many Disney films, in his portrayal of the dastardly and evil Vet. I almost did not recognize him with the thick "soda bottle-bottom" glasses, but as always Mr. Jones gave a stellar performance. X-Files star David Duchovney plays the part of a company representative who wants to try to take over the family's business, and only Beethoven sees him and his female partner for what they are and takes them on the ride of their lives (one of the funniest scenes of the film). I generally find sequels are not as good as the first, but in this case the humor of Beethoven's 2nd and Beethoven's 3rd hold true to first and are also worth viewing.
