In the movie Beethoven's Big Break, we follow the story of a lovable and mischievous St. Bernard pup named Beethoven. The movie opens with Emily (played by Jennifer Finnigan), a struggling animal trainer who is desperate for a break in her career. Emily gets her chance to shine when she is hired by a big-time Hollywood producer to work on the set of an upcoming movie. However, there's a catch – she'll have to train Beethoven, who is set to make his big-screen debut.

Initially, Emily is hesitant to take on such a task. Beethoven is known for his rambunctious personality and tendency to wreak havoc wherever he goes. However, the prospect of working with a Hollywood producer is too good to pass up, so Emily reluctantly agrees. She soon discovers that Beethoven is not only a handful, but he also has a few unexpected tricks up his furry sleeves.

As Emily tries to transform Beethoven into a movie star, she must contend with the rest of the cast and crew, who underestimate the pup's potential. However, Beethoven quickly proves his worth on the set – whether it's causing chaos during a high-speed chase or saving the day when a stunt goes wrong.

The movie also delves into the lives of the human characters, including Eddie (played by Jonathan Silverman), Emily's love interest who is also an animal lover. Eddie is initially wary of Beethoven, but he soon develops a soft spot for the lovable pooch. Meanwhile, Mo (played by Moises Arias) is the young actor who stars alongside Beethoven, and he quickly realizes that working with a dog is much more challenging than he anticipated.

As the movie progresses, Emily and Beethoven become closer, and Emily's confidence as a trainer and a person grows. However, as with all movies, there are twists and turns that threaten to derail Beethoven's big break. For instance, the producer decides to replace Beethoven with a computer-generated dog, causing a rift among the cast and crew.

The movie also features a standout performance by Eddie Griffin, who plays the owner of a pet store where Beethoven and Emily get their supplies. Griffin's character is a scene-stealer, offering comic relief and sage advice to the characters when they need it the most.

Overall, Beethoven's Big Break is a heartwarming and entertaining movie that will appeal to both animal lovers and fans of family-friendly comedies. The St. Bernanrd character is charming and lovable, and the human characters are relatable and well-developed. The movie is a great reminder of the power of determination and the importance of following your dreams – even if those dreams involve training a mischievous dog for a Hollywood movie.
