Trivia

Christopher Masterson a small role in the film, however his older brother, Danny Masterson, had a leading role in the film. The two were not playing brothers in the movie, so neither one mentioned to anyone that they were related. When producers went to view the film they noticed the resemblance and re-shot all of Chris's scenes with another actor. See more »

Just as good as the first!
3 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay I know a lot of people don't like this movie, but I don't see what is wrong with it. The Newmans this time decide to take a family vacation and of course bring Beethoven along. Although this time he has had puppies. The puppies mother is after them and tries to steal them. But the family sticks together to try and save the puppies.

If you enjoy the first one then you will love this one. It is the same great cast and family setting. It is a non stop laughing fest just like the first.

Most of the time sequels aren't as good, not in this case. There are some great scenes involving Beethoven and his puppies. Children of all ages will love this along with their parents!
