Beethoven's Big BreakClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this family dog movie has one scene where Beethoven is in peril (a man stands over him with a needle), some pratfalls, and a couple dog fart jokes. Also, adults kiss twice. To go with the Hollywood theme, Beethoven indulges in some celeb-style excess -- a fancy trailer, his own massage therapist, and more.
- Sexual Content
- Adults kiss twice.
- Sal Demarco threatens to destroy Beethoven, and gets so far as leaning over him with a hypodermic needle full of a death agent. Some prat falls and comic violence, but nothing extreme.
- Not applicable
- Social Behavior
- When Beethoven creates chaos, he puts adults and kids on a level playing field -- in other words, how authoritative can a person be when a St. Bernard is licking your ear? Some dog fart jokes.
- Examples of Hollywood excess. The studio lot has fancy sets and limousines to spare. Beethoven gets a fancy trailer, a massage therapist, a hairstylist, and Cesar Milan at his beck and call when he makes it big.
