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.

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.

Beethoven is no classic, but it's a sunny, energetic children's film with a good notion of what young audiences like.

A waggish tale of canine chicanery, an uproarious if impawsible symphony of drool, doggy fidelity and chewed shoes.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A family comedy about a wacky & destructive St. Bernard that is totally without any merit whatsoever.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

Anti-working mom bias gives a sour feeling to an otherwise innocuous dog movie.
