June 15, 2018

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

It's been 14 years; the wait is finally over. America's favorite family of superheroes is back in Disney-Pixar's new action-packed sequel, Incredibles 2. In the final scene of the first installment, the family of five suits up in order to fight crime together as a team, and it is precisely at that [...]

Get Out

February 24, 2017
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Enough Said

September 18, 2013
This movie features likable characters in Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) and a man she meets at a party, Albert (James Gandolfini). They soon become a couple. Complications arise when Eva takes on giving massages to a new client named Marianne (Catherine Keener) only to discover that Marianne is [...]

The Soloist

April 24, 2009
It's intriguing that this film is based on a true story. Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx) is a homeless man but different than most. He is a musical prodigy who attended Julliard and who has a mental illness. When L.A. Times news reporter Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) comes across him on the street [...]

Hamlet 2

August 29, 2008
"Hamlet 2" would make Shakespeare turn over in his grave if he knew of this tragedy (and I don't mean "tragedy" in the sense that Shakespeare would have meant it). This is not a Greek tragedy or one of Shakespeare's tragedies such as his original play. This is a tragedy in the sense of its [...]

Capote

November 11, 2005
The movie, "Capote" chronicles the four years that Truman Capote took to research and write the book that made him famous, "In Cold Blood." He befriended Perry Edward Smith, one of two convicted murderers of a family of four in a farm house in rural Kansas. He did this so he could gain Smith's [...]

The 40-Year-Old Virgin

August 19, 2005
Well, it's no surprise that I could have waited another 40 years before I saw this film. As the title implies, the main character is still a virgin. For almost 2 hours the viewer is inundated with every virgin joke ever told. The rest of the time, we are put through a barrage of language that [...]

The Ballad of Jack and Rose

April 15, 2005
This is by far the worst film I have seen in some time. My fear is that Hollywood in its infinite wisdom will somehow vote to give this film an Oscar nomination. "The Ballad of Jack and Rose" is a huge waste of time and money. It is very disjointed and the only likeable character in the film, Marty [...]

The Interpreter

April 22, 2005
I was really hoping that this film would be family-friendly because it was suspenseful, well written, and Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn gave wonderful performances. But near the beginning there is a strip club scene that shows topless women and then towards the end of the film there are three [...]

Simone

August 23, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

To feed his starved ego and win back his ex-wife Elaine (Catherine Keener), Viktor lies once, then three more times to cover up the first, making his professional comeback a nightmare. But the truth wins out. Considering the possibilities with the PG-13 rating, "Simone’s" foul language seems [...]
