Based on the popular children’s book of the same name, Ferdinand is a delightful, must-see family adventure with a powerful message.

Transformers (2007)

October 16, 2007
This movie joins the rank of films which barely miss out on being approved by Dove. It is rated a three in the language category of our content scale, and a three means it can't be approved. It would have been had it been a two rating but, unfortunately, it wasn't. There is simply a lot of language [...]

Hustle and Flow

January 10, 2006
Terrence Dashon Howard’s name will be even more commonly known after this film. He delivers an excellent performance, showing the harsh reality of surviving the street life. Combine that with his role in “Crash”, and it shouldn’t be long before Howard has roles developed specifically for [...]

Kings Ransom

I was hoping someone would pay a king’s ransom and free me from this terrible film. It was simply ninety-five minutes of sexual content and miserable humor (if you could call it that). Honestly, I didn’t expect this movie to be worthy of awards, but I was hoping for a few laughs, especially [...]

Kangaroo Jack – Edited

December 9, 2004

Dove Approved for All Ages

Kangaroo Jack must be related somehow to Scooby-Doo. The facial expressions of the computer generated kangaroo are strikingly similar to the crazy dog. The movie is great for kids and family viewing- and the kids will especially love the kangaroo. Anthony Anderson and Jerry O’Connell provide [...]

I give this movie a 12+ because of some of the content in the story, one brother is having an affair, cousin who drinks and smokes, the feelings of the mom, [...]

Kangaroo Jack

June 24, 2003

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Kangaroo Jack" is funny in places, especially with the comical expressions and computer-generated antics of the kangaroo. But because of bad language, several scenes of violence and some mild sexual innuendo, parents should be cautioned. Dove has given this film a 12+ [...]
