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.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

It's the kind of clever, innocuous family entertainment that's always in short supply.

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.
