Goofs

In the scene when the boy names the dog Beethoven, the orchestra on the TV is indeed playing Beethoven's Fifth, as the announcer says. However, when the boy's father enters the living room and hears a classic melody of Beethoven, what you hear comes from Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, not Fifth. See more »

Awful..
29 October 2018 | by BatmanFunReviews2018See all my reviews

Eddie, a struggling animal trainer and single dad suddenly finds himself the personal wrangler for a large and lovable St. Bernard whose fabulous movie "audition" catapults the dog to stardom. However, a trio of unscrupulous ne'er-do-wells have plans to kidnap the famous dog and hold him for ransom. Beethoven's Big Break is the 6th installment in the Beethoven Series and unfortunately we do hit rock bottom with this awful excuse of a film which is packed with terrible dialogue and humor, perfomances and an even worse set of storyline as well also.
