Animal lovers will be in seventh heaven watching this cute comedy about an adorable St Bernard dog named Beethoven and the effect he has on an American family. Charles Grodin, best known for his performance opposite Robert De Niro in Midnight Run, is the father who ends up with a puppy he doesn't want, which turns into a huge eating and slobbering machine. The Flintstones director Brian Levant keeps the comedy coming fast and furious, and Beethoven is gorgeous enough to soften even the hardest dog-hater's heart. Watch out for The X-Files's David Duchovny as the sleazy yuppie who reckons he's a coffee connoisseur.

Plot Summary

Comedy starring Charles Grodin. A St Bernard puppy escapes from dog catchers and finds his way to the Newton household. They name him Beethoven, but not only does he become enormous and spread chaos, he also seems to be foiling George Newton's business expansion plans.
