Dove Approved for Ages 12+

What a terrific film and with a message to boot! This adaptation of Dr. Seuss' tale of the Lorax, a guardian of the trees, is awesomely animated with terrific 3D and it carries an important environmental reminder that we should take care of the trees and our land. We follow the story through the [...]

Reno 911! : Miami

June 19, 2007
“Reno 911” portrays a team of some of the most inept law enforcement officers on the planet. The film is a spoof of the television show “Cops,” and it employs some of the same techniques that are used on that show: a handheld camera is used in some scenes, and the characters sometimes talk [...]

Deck the Halls

If you liked the movie "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" you will love this one. This slapstick comedy is about two men with an obsession of being number one at Christmas. Danny and Steve's competitive ways get each one of them into trouble and causes problems for both men. There are plenty [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

If you've ever let your mind wander back to the time you were a young child, and immersed in memories and times spent with your parents: that wide-eyed kid. I guarantee that you'll thoroughly enjoy this film. This film opens the eyes of the soul of the child and brings them fast-forward into the [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I'm a Gene Hackman fan: I like "French Connection", and "The Firm", to name only two of my favs. Hackman doesn't disappoint in this film, but he also doesn't bring you into the action enough that you care about the characters. Hackman's wife, many years younger than he, uses her sexuality to sway [...]

Anything Else – Filtered

December 23, 2003
"Anything Else" was a long movie with a weak plot and filled in with enough sexual topics and talk to make it far from family friendly. I was surprised that a movie with so many big names would be so slow and almost boring. If you have a choice between "Anything Else" and something else- go with [...]

Anything Else

The message of the film, “you can only depend upon yourself,” finds frequent expression. Due to an atheistic world view, several sexual encounters, crude humor, and bad language and profanity, Dove cannot award "Anything Else" the Dove [...]

Whats The Worst that Could Happen

While the film veers away from most of the crude humor associated with today’s comedies, it still has enough bawdiness – and offensiveness - to go around. There’s a flamboyant police detective to make fun of. (Gays won’t like that.) A ditzy old lady maces the cops. (The elderly have [...]

Based on characters from Greek mythology about the son of Zeus kidnapped as an infant by Hades, "Lord of the Underworld." Given a potion that will make him human and no longer a threat to the film’s antagonist, the baby drinks all but one drop, which, unbeknownst to the bad guy, will allow Herc [...]


I forget, isn’t a comedy supposed to be funny? What little attempt there is at humor in this screenplay, if you could call it that, relies on either crude, mean-spirited, crude, sexually suggestive, crude, imbecilic, or just plain uncouth material. Oh, and did I mention that it’s crude? I [...]
