Movie Info

Huge, drooly, and lovable Beethoven the dog once again wreaks havoc on the lives of his family in this sequel. This time he and his beloved Missy get together and provide the Newton family with four equally-mischievous pups, something the children do their best to conceal from their stressed-out parents.

Audience Reviews for Beethoven's 2nd

    The first of many sequels in this stupid franchise. I remember liking the first two films in this series back when they first came out, only because I was like 8 years old at the time of the first two films release. Looking back now, these films haven't stood the test of time, and really insult a kid's intelligence. The films are terrible, and there's been so many better films that the family can enjoy than this tired, unimpressive series. Luckily I stopped caring about Beethoven after this second entry. The film suffers from a poor plot, bad acting, and really doesn't do anything original. The only reason that they green lit this second film was to cash in on the success of the first, that's it. It was clear that no matter how crappy the plot was, how poorly developed the plot and characters were people would go see it. I'm sorry but the Beethoven series is simply a dull, poorly crafted family oriented series. I can name a dozen family films that are better than this. I hated this film and seeing this on TV again, I wondered why I even liked these two films. I guess when you're a kid, you like everything. Beethoven 2nd is a poorly made sequel that just doesn't entertain. This is the type of film that can't be redeemed and this series was doomed from the start. If you enjoy a good family oriented film, rent Toy Story instead. At least that was a great film that was smartly crafted. This film reuses recycled, boring old ideas and doesn't do anything to entertain you. Hell, they pumped out six sequels with the same old ideas. This proves that Hollywood is running out of ideas.

    Too many of the movies I loved as a child I later realized sucked hardcore. Oh great, now I feel nostalgic.

    This movie was honestly dreadful, stupid and awful. Any other word also, the book just reads on of terrible words. I can't believe that the creators were thinking that they were making a good family film. It is complete trash!

    Just about as good as the original. I actually liked the dream sequence that Beethoven had with all the meat. I thought that was kind of funny. Had some funny moments and had kind of a better villain than the last, but it had too many puppies in this. Not that good or funny, but something that the kids could enjoy.
