What does dkMommy do when she’s not drying herbs, reviewing eco products, and fighting toy making injustices? Well, some days she curls up on the couch with one very special toddler and watches a DVD. We don’t really watch much television, so we tend to collect a few special DVD’s for my son to enjoy. They’re commercial-free, we know exactly what we’re getting, and the good ones get several viewings. Since my son is absolutely in love with dogs, I was excited to give Beethoven’s latest flick a try.
Beethoven’s Big Break comes out on DVD December 26th, and it’s never been in theaters, so this is all new furry footage. As with all the Beethoven flicks, it’s loaded with critters, slapstick humor, and plenty of Beethoven (the composer) musical references. Beethoven finds himself an up-and-coming movie star when he’s discovered by a Hollywood producer. Moises Arias (Rico from Hannah Montana) is as cute as can be as the lead role – uh – beside the other hairier lead role, of course, and my son got a big kick out of watching what to him must look like the largest dog in existence. For me, it’s a trip down memory lane of sorts. I grew up with a St. Bernard mix, so one look in those big brown eyes and I simply melt with nostalgia and the urge to hug a dog larger than I am.
