The Newton family live in their comfortable home, but there seems to something missing. This "hole" is filled by a small puppy, who walks into their home and their lives. 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
So incensed were the American Veterinary Association about the depiction of a vet as leader of a dog-napping ring, they fired off a letter of protest to Jack Valenti, head of the Motion Picture Association of America. See more »
When Alice places bacon on George's plate, she puts down two. Before Beethoven eats one, there are three. This is because the same footage of bacon being placed on a plate was used twice (which had two pieces). See more »

Do you enjoy movies with excessive groin biting, stupid mobsters (see "Blank Check"), nauseating cuteness, and the precise timing and rapier wit of Charles Grodin? Then, God help us, Beethoven is for you. Memo to David Duchovny: start buying the copies before the kids who watch this are old enough to stay up for X-Files. It's called credibility, Dave, look into it. Watching Beethoven in the theaters is wonderful. Just me and a friend, and a Mormon family, who, after walking into the theater seventy-five minutes late, gave us dirty looks for yelling well-deserved sarcastic remarks at the screen. "Beethoven" is for people who think "Blankman" was robbed at the Oscars.
