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.
