Beethoven’s Treasure Tail – Blu-ray/DVD Combo Edition

beethovens treasure tailA silly film that will drive away anyone who doesn’t like predictable pratfalls or hammy acting. The best thing that can be said about it is that it is basic entertainment that might keep the kids quite for a little while.


After being fired from his latest movie shoot, Eddie (played by Jonathan Silverman) loads Beethoven into a Volkswagon Beetle and starts to drive back to California. En route, they end up crashing into a sign and Eddie has to push the car to the next town. That ends up being the small coastal village of O’Malley’s Cove. Once at the one garage in town they are told that it is going to a day or two before the part needed to repair the car comes in, so Eddie and Beethoven have to check in to the village’s one and only B&B. A B&B run by Grace O’Malley (played by Jayne Eastwood), a strict woman who does not allow pets in her establishment.


Though Beethoven is probably the biggest movie star to have every stopped in O’Malley’s Cove the residents of the town are distracted by their own problems. The town is neck deep in financial difficulties with all stores closed or closing and basically no money coming in. They are desperately searching for a solution.


Beethoven’s best new friend Sam (played by Bretton Manley) has been trying to solve the town’s financial problems by using Captain O’Malley’s treasure maps. Though he has used all twelve of them nothing has been found.  It seems like selling most of the town’s land to German millionaire developer Fritz Bruchschnauser (played by Jeffrey Combs) is the only solution. Unfortunately it seems like his plan is of the double crossing variety. It is going to be up to Sam and Beethoven to save O’Malley’s Cove.
