actor: Ben Stiller

The Heartbreak Kid

This film is the story of one man who, tired being of being the only single man he knows besides his father, rushes into a whirlwind marriage with a woman. However, no sooner do they say “I do” when he begins to wish he had said “I don’t.” The complicated situation becomes even more so [...]

Night at the Museum

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is an imaginative movie which is a good one for the holidays. The film starts off a bit slowly, with the dialog lacking wit and although there's nothing snappy about it, when the museum comes to life at night for Larry, the new security guard, the movie takes off and is quite fun to watch. The [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

Kids are absolutely going to love this film. I was packed in the middle of the theater with about twenty youngsters and my ears were full of constant laughing and giggling. It was a relief to view a Hollywood animated film without a lot of sexual innuendo (there was only one such minor occasion in [...]

Dodgeball – Edited

April 12, 2005

Dove Approved for All Ages

I loved this movie. With both Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn together, they just feed off of each other and make the movie just that much funnier. Vince Vaughn is the owner of a not-well-utilized, supposedly second rate gym. He and the few people who are regulars at his gym find out that the jerk who [...]

Duplex – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I enjoyed this movie. Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore work really well together and the whole plot of the movie seems new and refreshing. This movie was originally rated PG-13 when it came out for sexual content, language, and violence. The edited version removed the language to where nothing [...]

Meet the Fockers

If you liked Meet the Parents, you will like Meet the Fockers. This fast paced sequel takes up where the first one left off. Unfortunately, this film is full of double entendre and sexual situations making it anything but a family movie. While the humor and situations may get an MPAA PG-13 [...]

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

The owner of Average Joe’s is unmotivated but keeps fighting after the encouragement of others. As he sees others overcome huge obstacles, he is ashamed for being so quick to give up. Dodgeball is a funny movie with clever dialog, but much of the humor is crude and in bad taste. Much of the humor [...]

Envy

Envy has a lot of commendable content, but unfortunately packages it in a poorly written film that is filled with objectionable language. It does make an attempt to explore human nature and the evils that can consume a person. While the obvious topic at hand is envy, the film also deals with the [...]

Starsky and Hutch

Action scenes include wild car chases, explosions, shootings and a few fisticuffs, but there’s no gore, although a drug lord shoots a gang member point blank. The film’s greatest crime is its attempt to portray as comical things that aren’t funny: a young boy throwing kitchen knives at police [...]

Along Came Polly

In "Along Came Polly," two extramarital sexual relationships are presented. The first relationship, between Reuben’s wife and another man, is treated negatively as an outrageous violation of the recent marriage covenant. The second relationship, between Reuben and Polly, is treated positively. [...]
