Zoolander 2

February 12, 2016
"Zoolander 2" is the follow up to 2001's first "Zoolander" movie and, to quote our Dove Foundation reviewer, Dick Rolfe, it was a "tasteless loser." If I may borrow that line from Mr. Rolfe, that pretty much sums up "Zoolander 2." Other than maybe two or three laughs at the most -- and that is [...]

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

December 19, 2014

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" is hilarious fun! There are several laugh-out-loud moments in the movie, which is as good as the original and brings this trilogy to an appropriately humorous conclusion. The magic is about to be lost and once Larry (Ben Stiller) learns why, he is off to [...]

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

December 25, 2013
Walter Mitty is a negative asset manager at Life Magazine, meaning he is responsible for archiving all of the photo negatives from every image ever used or submitted.

Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted

June 8, 2012

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is one fun ride! Join the caravan as King Julian, the monkeys, penguins, zebra, giraffe, and other animals travel through Europe after joining a traveling circus. The action is fast-paced and the animals likable. In fact, one young girl laughed at the sea lion and said out loud, "I like him!" [...]

The Watch

July 27, 2012
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Tower Heist

November 4, 2011
This is one of those "real potential" movies. It had the potential to be genuinely funny and entertaining but, regretfully, it falls short due to two main reasons: 1. It is sometimes not funny when trying to be and: 2. It has a massive amount of language in it. The profanities roll off the [...]

Little Fockers

December 22, 2010
Once again the Focker family and Byrnes family come together to bring their hilarious antics to the screen. This film is geared towards an adult audience with their sexual openness and innuendos. It does have some funny moments. But this is not a family film. Their discussions regarding sexual [...]

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian

May 22, 2009

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie includes some slaps as a few characters slap each other, as well as slapstick humor. But other than some good guys fighting some bad guys (with the likes of General Custer and Napoleon being involved) the violence isn't very strong in this picture and what there is of it is pretty [...]

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

November 7, 2008

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The animals in Africa are amazingly funny and audacious! These characters have some great facial expressions which cracked up the audience I screened this film with. Humor abounds. An example of this occurs when a plane carrying several of the animals almost crashes. One animal is seen safely on [...]

Tropic Thunder

August 13, 2008
This is one of the most offensive movies I have seen in some time. Within the first two minutes there were at least fifteen profanities. I lost count of the bad language after about ten minutes. There was about every imaginable profanity or slang word you can imagine. In one scene a director tells [...]
