Critic Reviews of "Beethoven"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Rallies at the end to prevent chaperoning adults from feeling their time was completely wasted.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Elevated from the doldrums of Digby-esque sentimentality by a surprisingly bouncy script, the film is also redeemed by regular interludes of acerbic dialogue and a brace of fine supporting performances.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Beethoven is no classic, but it's a sunny, energetic children's film with a good notion of what young audiences like.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
A waggish tale of canine chicanery, an uproarious if impawsible symphony of drool, doggy fidelity and chewed shoes.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It's the kind of clever, innocuous family entertainment that's always in short supply.Antagony & EcstasyNovember 21, 2011
A family comedy about a wacky & destructive St. Bernard that is totally without any merit whatsoever.Common Sense MediaJanuary 02, 2011
A sloppy but lovable pooch of a movie.TV GuideAugust 12, 2009
A safely banal concoction in the tradition of the bland live-action Disney features cranked out during the Magic Kingdom's dispirited years after Walt's death.Film4May 16, 2006
Kids will 'ooh' and 'aah' over the shaggy, doe-eyed doggy as it demolishes the family home, but grown-ups should stay on the sofa and enjoy the acerbic asides which distinguish this offering from the glut of cute mongrel movies.Juicy CerebellumMarch 24, 2005
I love dogs, but still had trouble getting through this.Kansas City KansanOctober 25, 2004
Overbearing (actually overdogging) family comedy.Movie Mom at Yahoo! MoviesSeptember 16, 2004
Anti-working mom bias gives a sour feeling to an otherwise innocuous dog movie.
