Plot Summary

Beethoven is back, and this time, he's bringing the kids. It's the further adventures of the Newton family and their lovable, lumbering pal, Beethoven. In this second "symphony" of the Beethoven saga, our hero meets Missy, the lady Saint Bernard of his dreams. Unfortunately, they are soon separated by Regina, Missy's hateful owner who is using her as a bargaining chip in an ugly divorce. But love finds a way, and the result is four adorable, roly-poly puppies. The prospect of four valuable, purebred pups appeals to Regina's greed, but the Newton kids come to the rescue and bring home the cuddly canines. Now if they can just convince Dad to adopt the huge, messy bundles of joy . . . Mission accomplished. But Missy is still in Regina's evil clutches. Will Missy, Beethoven and their puppies ever be reunited? And will Regina finally get what she deserves? Written by Official DVD cover

Trivia Christopher Masterson had 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' scenes with another actor. See more »
