The head of the family is the one with the tail.
Workaholic George Newton (Charles Grodin) reluctantly agrees to let his children keep a St. Bernard puppy who's just escaped the clutches of two dimwitted dognappers (Oliver Platt and Stanley Tucci). Dubbed Beethoven, the playful pooch soon turns into a full-grown engine of destruction, leaving wreckage and hilarity in his wake. Disney veteran Dean Jones is cast against type as a vile veterinarian who kidnaps Beethoven for a lab experiment.
