Storyline

The Newton family from the first two 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 dog 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 have a DVD holding top secret information, and the crooks must get it back. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Riiiight, nice cover up
29 November 2006 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

I was babysitting a couple nights ago and my cousins are in love with the Beethoven movies, so we watched all of them and had a movie night. I remember loving the first and the second Beethoven when I was a kid, so in some ways I was interested in seeing where the story took off for the Newtons. But this turned into your typical family film that wasn't really original or believable. The "villains" seemed to be homosexual morons who seemed out of place of wanting a disc of valuable information and the whole family was predictable stereotypes.

Beethoven for no reason explained has been shipped to George Newton's brother, Richard who is taking his family to a reunion where he'll meet Geroge and Alice and give them Beethoven. I guess Richard rents a movie that these criminals thought would never be rented, in the case there is a DVD of secret information that the criminals must have back. They chase the family around with Beethoven who will make sure that these guys will not hurt the family, although with these certain villains, I'm pretty sure that's not a strong possibility.

It was really bad acting and not even a good enough movie for a family afternoon. I'm not sure why my cousins liked the movies, because I raised them better than that with movie knowledge, but oh well, I guess these movies must have something special in them. So, I guess I will give it an extra point.

2/10
