    Was this really a franchise worth milking? I barely even remember the first film. Home Alone made sense, but I doubt Beethoven had that much popularity.

    Well, my little brother had ALL these movies....

    No home alone didn't make sense to milk at all
  • Wookiee7  - Another one?
    How many of these fucking movies are there? I only knew about three (and only the first one was worth watching), but damn, it reminds me of the game Crazy Castle and all its sequels.

    Just one more; Beethovens big break (or something like that) from 2008.

    This made the last one look great! What the heck???? Anyone else notice every actor in this film was the star in a sitcom?

    The thing that always depresses me about these movies is that John Hughes was at least tangentially involved with all of them. At least he stopped being the primary scriptwriter for the last two.

    ... I get similarly depressed by the 'Home Alone' films.
  • Trekkie313  - Seriously WTF?!
    What is up with those poor "stuffed" kitties? Why did it need to be in the film? :(

    Destroying mailboxes is a federal offense. Is that Cathy Griffin? Ugh.
  • Trekkie313
    Don't you mean Kathy, also that is totally not her.
  • DarkBee
    avatar
    Yes, that is Kathy Griffin, I don't know any other actress that looks like her, and of course it says so in the credits (+ Wikipedia and Imdb).

    Well that was a pretty lame & contrived sesesesequel. I suppose the next one's even worse?
  • strudelcuddy

    Jeez they're not even pretending these movies are about or even involve the dog anymore.
  • BooRat

    Dang that looked bad hopefully there're no more!

    Even though Dave Thomas is Canadian. Lol.

    Just two more sequels to go; Beethoven's Big Break and Beethoven's Christmas Adventure.

    In the former they retcon the series so Beethoven was a dog actor and the original movies were just movies he starred in.

    The latter has Santa Claus, elves, flying reindeer, etc.

    Guess old-fashioned Americans love wackiness.

    Beethoven also talks in the last one.

    Actually sir, John Larroquette is great.
  • Emilie Bennett  - Oh, Dave Thomas...
    Dave Thomas, why? Also, Mike, he was in his 50's when he did this, not 60's.

    From what I can tell, this sequel makes Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves look like an Oscar contender. Then again, I've never watched a single Beethoven movie.
  • youjik33
    ...Daveigh Chase is probably better known for crawling out of a TV and killing people in the American version of "The Ring".
  • sturmovik
    Ugh a 5th one??? Please, make it stop.
  • Emilie Bennett  - @youjik33
    She's also Lilo and Chihiro.

    Seriously, why are there so many good character actors in this movie? Was some agent having a character actor sale and they just came in a dozen pack?
    I guess it was a desperate try to save their paper-thin premise. A failed try.

    Good lord what a boring film. But I must admit I never heard of Beetovhen before.

    I REALLY wish Hollywood would just learn to let franchises DIE...or at least do the movies right. I mean, nobody is expecting a masterpiece but they should've been done better than, well this. I remember the first two Beethovens being pretty decent for a kids' film, and I didn't know about the others until years later and even without watching them I knew they were going to be bad.

    And the only possible reason I can think of as to why any good actor would be in this thing was because of money, whether they needed it or not. Shame really.

    I love all your reviews, and British Bastard cracks me up every time. Never stop being awesome, Mike J.
  • Bloodrealm
    Wait a minute... The girl's got an uncle Freddie... and her father's brother is George... meaning that she has an uncle George... mean that FRED AND GEORGE are brothers! Mind = Blown

    Hold on... That "mercury mine" thing wasn't a joke? So they know that there's mercury contaminating the entire area and causing brain damage in a lot of the townspeople, and they don't care? And the girl's parents allow her to go there? This is horrible!

    I don't doubt what you said about this originally being a totally different movie that was re-written into a Beethoven movie, even though he barely did anything in it. You could probably find this out for sure with a little research, though I doubt it would be worth it.

    Yeah, it was a Scooby-doo rip-off...prett lame. Let's see if the next Beethoven can be any better, though I doubt it.

    I only watched the first two Beethoven movies. I was skeptical about a third after they changed the family and I'm really happy that I never did watch any of them.
