Kevin Carr 7M Pictures offers plenty of slapstick moments and a fair share of burps and farts, which make the movie a sure-fire hit for young kids Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 5, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

Tralee V This is just the first movie but remastered and 19 times better Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/03/24 Full Review Audience Member Just why??? Why did it need to be rebooted??? They couldn't couldn't just continue the story with either of the Newton family??? No point of it being rebooted! This movie is so redundant!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Ahhhh! Stop making them. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member My family and I watched this together and we all enjoyed it. It is a little funny a little realistic and His dad has way to many animals.lol But all in all the story has a great message about a father and a son and how they end up bonding threw Beethoven. I absolutely recommend it for a family movie night. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Different/Not Bad/Kinda Liked... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Another dumb addition to a long line of unnecessary sequels and thankfully the last. With the last film being a little different, this one however is yet another Beethoven movie that refuses to distinguish itself from the others. This Beethoven movie is about a film crew filming a Beethoven movie, because that is just what the film industry needs right now right? The characters are once again annoying and you do not care about them. The jokes remain the same that were already on the other 5 films. But what really bothered me once I noticed it was the lizard in the film, whenever it would run around it would look like a fake and unrealistic cgi creature and the crew behind the movie could have used a real one instead of going the cheap route and using a computer lizard. I guess the movie would be good for 8 year olds, I will give it that but nevertheless, this film still sucks. Now, I can officially say I am done watching and reviewing the franchise and now I can move on. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
