I really like the first two. This one, on the other hand..., 23 July 2013
Author: mutty-mcflea from Lincolnshire, UK

The original cast has wisely jumped ship and taken with them every last trace of charm. Without the good-natured humour, sunny atmosphere and believable chemistry of the first two films, this sequel instead brings in Judge Reinhold to lead an uninspired rerun of those Chevy Chase 'Vacation' films.

This is a dire, hopeless film, it really is: a bargain basement comedy that scratches desperately in the dirt for laughs and comes up empty- handed. Repetitious scenes with a couple of crooks trying to steal a DVD and getting chased by Beethoven raise not so much as a smile, and a sequence where the family visit Sumoworld, a theme park in which fat wrestlers wear cowboy hats, is just flat out baffling.

Fart gags and a tacky score add to the comedy vacuum, while several plugs for 'The Land Before Time VI' drive home the film's status as a hollow cash-in. Utter dreck.

Amazingly, 'Beethoven's 4th' is even worse.
