Don't get me wrong, I like this film, but the only thing is I believe this film ruined the Beethoven film series, because the dog is not supposed to talk, that is the whole point. It makes the entire film seem like make-believe. When acting in movies about dogs, it's all meant to seem and look real. this doesn't. and for that reason, I believe the Beethoven movies should end here. I really prefer the other 6 films to this one.
