Dogs don’t watch movies like how human beings do. Their eyes cannot reflect color so whatever they see on the screen is actually combined with black and white. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t enjoy watching a classic dog movie with you. That being said, here’s a list of some of the best movies you can enjoy with your furry friend.
No, this is not a movie based on the famous German composer; instead it’s a fun-loving movie that covers the life of an adorable Saint Bernard named Beethoven as he becomes the center of attention of a loving family of five. While the mother and the kids dote on Beethoven, it takes a lot of time for the father to accept Beethoven as part of his family.
“My dream is going down the drain and you are f*****g worried about a DOG!!”
That’s George Newton – the father who becomes jealous of Beethoven and tries his best to remain the number-one man of the family. However, I don’t really blame him. He’s not the villain in the story, he’s just a stressed-out man who’s trying to run a business, pay the bills and raise his family, without wanting to add another “burden” to his already exhausting and chaotic life. But, in that process, he ends up creating amazingly funny moments for us to enjoy. And, by the end of the day, the scene where George screams with horror as Beethoven wriggles himself to dry-splash the man with drool will be forever imprinted in your mind.
Reviews of the Movie:
“One of the most entertaining dog movies I know!” – From Rodrigo. F
“Looking at the film I used to enjoy when I was a kid, I’d say this was and will always be my favorite among countless others.” – From Alex. G
“I had a great time with my kids watching this and I highly recommend!” – From Olivia. P
“I think the script for Beethoven is too dull. The theme is mediocre and the characters don’t have much history and charisma. I’ve seen better movies.” – From Anonymous
This is not really a classic dog movie, but it’s one of my personal favorites. I grew up watching this and believe me, you and your pooch will have a great time watching it too.
The movie centers on a beagle who was previously working as a watchdog, but after being disgraced for mistaking a piece of meat for a bomb, the dog hit the streets only to be abducted and placed in a lab where a mad scientist was going to test his new serum on him. After causing a chaos and starting a huge fire in the lab, the dog is exposed to some chemicals which modify his DNA and give him superpowers. Right after his escape from the lab, he is adopted by a former police officer who names him “Shoeshine.” Later on, when the beagle realizes he has superpowers, he teams up with the man’s 12-year-old boy and protect the city with his new powers.
Honestly, I think the movie, with its incredible cast and well-crafted story, deserved to be a classic. Unfortunately, not many loved the underdog-turned-hero story and some even wished it never existed.
Reviews of the Movie:
“The so-called plot of this film has nothing to do with “underdogs.” It’s just a boring and goofy-cartoon show turned into a disaster comedy movie.” – Sam. D
“This movie is a classic for me. The cast bring the somewhat 2-dimensional characters in to life by applying their own values, ideas, and soul into the people they play. In this way, the characters on screen become almost real people the audience can relate to and be excited by.” – From Morgan Ellis
“I think this movie was a joke. Bland characters, lame story plot and very poor acting.” –From Peter. B
“To me, it is one of the greatest classics of that very year. Right up next to Surs’ Up and National Treasure.” – From Zayden Tomson
