The following scenes were never shown in theaters, video, or DVD; only on television:
Ted removing his jacket to use it as a cover for the puppies he and Emily were placing in a cardboard box.
Ted and Emily are trapped in the apartment garage (where Regina and Floyd reside), so they try to open the garage door by stepping on a wire that opens it, but to no avail. However, Beethoven chews on the wire, which causes the garage to open.
After George Newton finds out about the puppies, the next scene shows him stapling fliers on each tree saying "Puppies for sale", while Emily secretly takes them off one-by-one, then attempts to potty-train them next to a hydrant, but it becomes very difficult for him.
The Newtons were packing all of their belongings and gear into their car before leaving their house.
After the McDonald's scene, the Newtons are singing car songs.
During the stay at their lake house, Ted secretly picks out air fresheners from the local convenience store.
Emily telling her mom that she taught their puppy Tchaikovsky, but he doesn't really follow her at all afterwards.
At Taylor's party, it shows Beethoven struggling to get free from the support beam, with the glass bottles shown shaking frequently. Although the scene where the three party guys are shown pouring beer onto Beethoven is edited out (but not in the final cut of the film).
During The fair scene when George is eating the kids show up to take him to the eating contest with Beethoven,the scene originally ends with George saying "What kind of a contest is it where you just sit?" however there is an extended version which shows them walking away with Ted saying "C'mon Dad"
After George's nightmare sequence of a lot of puppies in his living room, the Newton family's commercial airs on their TV and they all begin to watch it. The difference here (compared to the final cut of the film) is that once the doorbell rang (after the commercial), Ryce stands up quickly from the couch and answers the door, instead of her shouting, "I'll get it!"
This isn't a bad sequel but it's unable to measure up to the first "Beethoven," which was an extremely likable film. This is still a "cute" film and one parents and all the kiddies certainly will like.
It features a litter of St. Bernard puppies, and who doesn't go "aww" at the sight of little puppies, especially St. Bernard's? The puppies are the main story here, which turns into a "crime" story when "Missy" is dog-napped and the little ones also become endangered.
I didn't think this was a "silly" story as there are some good morals and lessons to be learned, but it was a bit "sappy." I get a little annoyed, too, when animals are pictured as smarter than the humans. I'm sorry but, as much as you might love pets and hate some people, that just ain't so.
Nonetheless, if you loved the first movie you'll find enough to like in here to enjoy it. If you thought the first film was just okay, you won't like this.
