Planes

November 19, 2013

Dove Approved for All Ages

For flying out loud, this is a great family movie! The kids will love it, the parents will enjoy the "in" jokes for adults, and everyone will love the flying sequences on the screen. Not to mention it's an underdog story about a crop dusting plane named, of course, Dusty. Who doesn't love to root [...]

Employee of the Month

This movie may appeal to teens and young adults, but I can't imagine it appealing to any mature age group at all, and that includes the mature teens and mature young adults! The one positive thing I gleaned from this film is that Zack (Dane Cook) seems to learn that if he truly cares about his job [...]
