A Dog’s Purpose

May 2, 2017

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"A Dog's Purpose" is a delightful movie! It is fun-filled, and it induces laughs, based on the behavior of dogs which dog owners and lovers will appreciate. There are four stories that are shared, and they are ultimately connected. The idea of "dog reincarnation" is used as a plot device, done so [...]

Playing for Keeps (2012)

This is a movie with a warm "feel good" ending and features a good story. It's unfortunate that the film contains a few items which drive it over the top of our acceptability level for family-friendly viewing. George Dryer (Gerard Butler) was a soccer star and the movie opens with three of his [...]

Pandorum

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 [...]

The Express

This could have been an inspirational story for families. In fact, I learned this film originally had a PG-13 rating but was changed to PG so I was hopeful it would go easy on the language so families could see it together. Unfortunately, that is exactly the area it crossed the line of [...]
