Storyline

The Newton family from the original Beethoven movies are on vacation in Europe but do plan to join a Newton family reunion and to make sure one of their family members definitely makes it, they ship him to travel to the reunion with George Newton's brother Richard. Guess which family member it was? That's right, Beethoven! The giant mutt follows Richard Newton and his family of a nagging wife and two bratty kids as they hit the road to California in a huge, shiny - and expensive RV, equipped with a DVD player. Following them are two bumbling crooks who have hidden some secret codes on a DVD that they figure no one in the world will buy, but someone does: Richard. So now they've got a DVD holding top secret information and the crooks must get it back... Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Trivia

Screenwriter John Hughes is credited (for "characters created by") as "Edmond Dantès". Dantes is the central character in "The Count of Monte Cristo" and is the same credit John Hughes had on Beethoven (1992) and Beethoven's 2nd (1993). See more »

Goofs

When Beethoven broke free from the camper's mirror in which he was tied to, in the next scene, when Beethoven is running to Brennon's aid, you can then see in the background that the mirror on the camper is still intact, as if it were never broken off. See more »

Quotes

[Brennan tries to watch "The Shakiest Gun in The West" on the DVD player; but as he presses play, he sees a computer code]
Brennan Newton: [to his dad; regarding the DVD] Dad, this disc is a reject.
Richard Newton: What? No, that was supposed to be one of the highlights of the trip.

Quentin Tarantino bit is clever, rest is not.
12 December 2001 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

Ok, the problems with this movie are numerous, but they must start with the silly storyline.

1- Thieves put a virus on a DVD and then sell the DVD to a movie rental store, only to wish to purchase it back again, only to notice that Judge Reinhold bought it (or at least I hope he bought it because otherwise he'd have massive rental fees), yet if he bought it, then the theives would have had to put a factory seal on it, which they didn't.

Anyway, trying to figure out the logic of this is beyond the point of the movie. In fact, its illogical that a movie with such a plot would even be green-lit (let a lone a sequel with the same copywrite date???, which doesn't even follow directly from the "surprise ending" of this movie--> if you can even call it a surprise).

Anyway, Judge Reinhold is decent and the new Newton family is at least watchable, yet the writing of this movie is the biggest disapointment. The characters are basically just around to fill holes and none of them have any character developement. Brennan's character is just whinny kid, who uses Beethoven to seduce girls (as he lacks charm), Sara is just there to be on the dog's side and to play off her brother, Beth is just a whinny Mom who hates the dog, and the theives are just idiots, the cops are pretty stupid, heck the best part may be the Video Store Clerk. At least Greg Pitts shows some range in an obvious Quentin Tarantino reference to his video store clerk days.

Too bad the rest of the film could not have been as clever. Rating: 3 (at least its better than part 4: rating of 2)
