Movie Info

The rude, crude, slobbering St. Bernard known as Beethoven is on thin ice with the parents who run the Newton household. If he destroys dad's (Judge Reinhold) artwork and drools on mom's (Julia Sweeney) briefcase one more time, he's history. The loving children of the family (Joe Pichler and Michaela Gallo) secretly enroll the dog into an obedience school in hopes of Beethoven learning a few manners. Meanwhile, Michelangelo, the pampered St. Bernard of the ultra-wealthy Sedgwick family -- a dog so well mannered it not only wipes its feet on a door mat but can also fold a dinner napkin -- accidentally winds up at the Newton's while Beethoven ends up at the Sedgwick estate, confusing the humans who live in both households.more

Potty humor abounds in predictable sequel.

Most people can live healthy lives without ever seeing this tired, uninspired piece of work.

Sad tale of floundering careers. Poor Judge Reinhold - he must hate himself.

August 1, 2002

An unoriginal but sometimes funny family film

Audience Reviews for Beethoven's 4th

Okay, now they have to stop, and if they make anymore I will cry. This film is on the edge of me actually liking it. They grab a halfway decent cast and play out every hair of humanity the franchise has left. There may not be much, but this direct to DVD film is better than the previous 2 installments, but it should have ended after the first film, which was great!

I've seen alot of stupid movies, when four's come around, but for a fourth movie, this movie has got to have a little credit. It's getting a little old at this point, but the plot was well thought, and it was actually pretty funny.
Worth watching atleast once, and good too occupy kids. A decent familly movie
