A Certificate


Our Score
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.


An all-American family adopts a huge St Bernard, but the father is dismayed when it turns into a one-dog disaster zone. He insists the mutt must go to a new home, but when it is kidnapped by a crooked vet, dad has a change of heart and races to the rescue. Comedy, starring Charles Grodin, Bonnie Hunt, Oliver Platt and David Duchovny.
