Beethoven's 4th

Overview

The DVD of Beethoven's 4th presents the film in wonderfully, crisply contrasted widescreen (1.85:1) images, with the superior lighting design benefiting most; for much of the movie the actors seem to have a halo of sharp back lighting that adds dimension to the sets. The benefits of Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound is used cleverly and convincingly, with sound effects frequently emerging from rear channels representing offscreen action (usually a St. Bernard doing something noisy and messy).

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The fourth installment in this shaggy-dog story finds the Newton family -- now headed by Judge Reinhold and Julia Sweeney, who replaced the original Beethoven masters, Charles Grodin and Bonnie Hunt, for Beethoven's 3rd -- coping with a massive case of mistaken canine identity. In what we can only assume to be a thematically appropriate conceit, the Newton's fluffy sheepdog, Beethoven -- at least in one half of his double role here -- adopts a pastoral demeanor. The story: Beethoven continues to run rampant through the Newtons' lives, trashing Dad's paperwork and ruining Mom's back-to-work wardrobe. The kids, now played by Joe Pichler and Michaela Gallo, send Beethoven off to obedience school, where a mix-up results in their slobbering beast getting sent home with the Sedgewicks, uptight owners of a remarkably poised show dog who happens to resemble Beethoven, if only outwardly. The Newtons, naturally, wind up with a paradigm of house-pet behavior and become nostalgic for Beethoven's slobbering bluster, which is concurrently trashing the Sedgewicks' posh digs. Fans can safely assume that five more sequels will arrive, perhaps interspersed between sonatas and concerti.
All Movie Guide
Cheerful, bright, and not without its amusing moments, Beethoven's 4th delivers much more than most fourth installments of franchise films. In fact, it stands up nicely on its own and is the rare family film that truly can be enjoyed by the entire family. Director David Mickey Evans, helming his second installment of the drooling dog saga, keeps the concept fresh without relying on too many woefully crude potty jokes. Production values are top line with the cinematography and lighting design holding to major studio standards. The cast is uniformly up to the task of competing with a fluffy mutt for laughs, and the dog -- who plays both Beethoven and Michelangelo -- is nicely understated in his roles.
