If you’re looking for a movie that will get you into the holiday spirit, check out Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure (now available on Blu-ray & DVD). In this heart-warming tale, the lovable Beethoven is on a mission to help Henry the elf. Henry has just crash-landed Santa’s sleigh in a tree after fleeing the North Pole. But that’s not the worst of this elf’s problems. Henry discovers Santa’s magical bag of toys has somehow fallen out of the sleigh! Hilarity ensues when Henry the elf, Beethoven and Beethoven’s teenage pal, Mason, set out to find the bag before it gets into the wrong hands.
Here are some things I liked about the movie:
1. There are tons of cute dogs! If you like pooches, this flick is for you!
2. There’s lots of silliness. You may find yourself with a case of the giggles. I did!
3. There are tons of festive decorations and holiday songs.
Here are some things I would warn parents about:
1. There is occasional name-calling and up-aged vocabulary.
2. The concept of death is brought up.
3. There is some comedic violence.
If you do see this movie, I hope you enjoy it!
