Fall in love with the big-hearted, wet-nosed star of this outrageous comedy hit from producer Ivan Reitman. With nefarious dognappers hot on his heels, an adorable puppy named Beethoven adopts the unsuspecting Newton family and promptly gorws up into 185 pounds of romping, drooling, disaster-prone St. Bernard!
America's top dog is back and this time, he's bringing the kids! Charles Grodin and Bonnie Hunt star in this hilarious comedy about the further adventures of the Newton family and their lovable, lumbering pal, Beethoven. In the second "symphony" of the Beethoven saga, our hero meets Missy, the lady Saint Bernard of his dreams. Unfortunately, they are soon separated by Regina (Debi Mazar), Missy's hateful owner who is using her as a bargaining chip in an ugly divorce. Will Missy, Beethoven and their puppies ever be reunited? And will Regina finally get what she deserves?
The story begins as Richard Newton, his wife Beth, daughter Sara and son Brennan prepare for a cross-country drive to a family reunion. For Richard, it's a dream vacation. For his family, it's boredom on wheels until the appearance of a surprise passenger: the huge, rollicking, slobbering, lovable dog, Beethoven. Richard has promised to take Beethoven to the reunion and deliver him to his owner, Richard's brother. Beth and Brennan are less than thrilled with this news, especially when the excitable Beethoven unleashes a string of canine calamities! But when two bumbling thieves threaten the safety of the Newtons, it's Beethoven who sets out to put the bite on the bad guys and forever win a place in his new family's hearts.
