Not a very innovative story, not much new here. Overall, it's pretty bland, but they stuck with a formula that works. Music by Randy Edelman, he of the worthy GETTYSBURG score of a year later.

Beethoven dominates the screen, so much so that you don't really get to know the human characters very well, and one feels somewhat disconnected from them. Surprising to see Dean Jones playing a bad guy.

For the most part, this is a gentle, inoffensive story. It got a little gross sometimes with Beethoven slobbering all over everything and urinating in George's briefcase, but I guess that's just kid humor of the nineties. I still don't know why they had to name him Beethoven. Just because he barked when she played BEETHOVEN'S FIFTH on the piano? Maybe he was trying to tell her something. Like don't give up her day job.

Overall, bland, but not bad. 6 out of 10.
