You deserve a break today! Get this adorable new Beethoven!
2 May 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Eddie (Jonathan Silverman) is a widowed father to son Billy (Moises Arias). An animal movie trainer, Eddie's main pet is an acting iguana but Billy longs for a dog. Dad says no. Meanwhile, Beethoven is homeless and goes looking for food in the LA suburbs, from butcher shops to pizza parlors. Of course, he crosses paths with Billy and the young lad can't resist bringing him home. Dad is aghast, especially when it turns out the canine is a she and there are puppies arriving soon! Although Eddie tells Billy they are only going to keep the dog temporarily while they search for a new home, Beethoven ends up going along to work. When the doggy star of Eddie's newest work, a bichon frise, ends up dognapped, the producer (Rhea Perlman) and the director (Eddie Griffin) are mad and fire the main animal trainer, giving Eddie the head job. And, when Beethoven runs through the set and makes everyone laugh, they ask the lovely screenwriter, Lisa (Jennifer Finnigan) to re-write the script with for their new St. Bernard star! At first, she is resentful and Lisa and Eddie bicker. But, soon, Lisa asks to come to Eddie's house to observe the dog and get ideas. As can be expected, proximity sometimes makes hearts beat faster. Meanwhile, the dognappers, getting no ransom for the small white dog, decide to go the same route and grab Beethoven. Will they succeed, ruining the completion of the motion picture and Eddie's job prospects? This adorable film will please everyone in the whole family, maybe the whole wide world. What's not to like, with great, funny stars, nice sets, lovely costumes, a zesty, imaginative script and a skilled, never-lagging direction? Give you and yours a break today, you deserve it, and get your hands on this one.
