Beethoven's Big Break DVD & Giveaway


Do you remember the classic movie Beethoven? He is every one's favorite dog! Well he is back with an all new movie! Beethoven's Big Break.

Although animal handler Eddie (Silverman) works with lots of creatures, he has a strict NO PETS ALLOWED policy and won’t let his son Billy keep adorable stray dog Beethoven and his family of puppies. But when dog-nappers steal the canine star of the movie Eddie’s working on, the studio big shots must quickly find a replacement and unexpectedly cast the lumbering canine as their next big star. Through his rambunctious antics and larger-than-life personality, Beethoven not only crashes into Hollywood but into Eddie’s heart as well.

Bring together one mega-popular pooch, an all-star cast, some of today’s hottest music and a barrel of bouncing baby St. Bernards, and it all adds up to Beethoven’s Big Break! The all-new adventure comes exclusively to DVD on December 26, 2008 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. This full-length comedy stars Moises Arias (Rico on “Hannah Montana”), Jonathan Silverman (“The Single Guy”), Daytime Emmy ® winner Jennifer Finnigan (“The Bold and the Beautiful”), Rhea Perlman (“Cheers”), Joey Fatone (“Dancing with the Stars,” ‘N Sync), Stephen Tobolowsky (“Heroes”), Oscar Nunez (“The Office”), Eddie Griffin (Undercover Brother) and Cesar Millan (“The Dog Whisperer”) in his feature film debut—and introduces Pete The Lizard! A fresh and funny re-imagination of the hugely popular franchise, Beethoven’s Big Break is jam-packed with more action and laughs than ever before.



BARKIN’ HOT BONUS FEATURES:
The Beethoven’s Big Break DVD contains a kennel full of exciting, exclusive bonus features, including:

· DELETED SCENES
· GAG REEL: Over 10 minutes of fun moments from the set.
· MOISES STEALS THE SHOW: Filled with direct-to-camera hijinks, this piece features Moises Arias acting, joking, and playing.

I can't remember any specific scenes, it's been awhile since I watched that movie. I just remember a big arse dog in it lol. ;)

Kristi said...

My kids love the Beethoven movies:) One of my favorite scenes is when he's all muddy and he gets on the bed and shakes and mud and muck fly all over the room:) Oh, oh, I also like the one where his leash wraps around the patio table and pulls the "bad" guys across the yard. (David Duchovny and Patricia Heaton, I think)

Oh I love these movies!! We had a st. bernard growing up, so the scene that made me laugh was when he's got the slobber hanging from his mouth and he shakes his head - slobber EVERYWHERE!! Had lots of those types of things happen with our dog, but she sure was a sweetheart!

I love the story of him falling in love and doing anything for his new doggie friend.

shelley said...

when he slobbers all over the place and when he shakes the mud off so funny thanks .

drming said...

The scene in the first Beethoven movie where the children are trying to find a name for the dog is cute and if you like classical music you will appreciate the humor behind how the name is finally derived.

Erica C. said...

the shaking of dirt, mud, and slobber on the bed is of course the best

Mrs. Hemphill's Online Classroom said...

In the first Beethoven, I just love Bonnie Hunt, as the mom. She seems so normal and down to earth with a home of kids, a crazy Charles Groden (for a hubby) and one nutso dog.
