The 1992 comedy classic about a big, loveable, slobbering, trouble-making St Bernard and the family who tries to handle him. Written by iconic ‘80s filmmaker John Hughes (under the faux name Edmond Dantès).
Living comfortably in their American home, the Newton family can’t help but feel something missing from their lives. To fill this void, they welcome adorable St Bernard puppy Beethoven into their home. But when he grows up, the dog becomes a big drooling troublesome mutt, at least in the father’s eyes. While the rest of the family becomes attached to their furry friend, a dodgy local vet seeks to reclaim Beethoven for more sinister reasons.
