Sleepless (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 [...]

Insidious Chapter 3

There is something a bit unusual about "Insidious Chapter 3" because a psychic, Elise Rainer, warns a girl about the dangers of contacting her deceased mother, saying "If you call to one of the dead, all of them can hear you." So, interestingly, she gives a warning against contact with the dead, [...]

The Grey

This is an extremely intense survival film which features some real irony. John Ottway (Liam Neeson) has shot wolves a few times and never winced. Sometime later he winds up in a plane headed for Anchorage and the plane crashes and now the wolves are hunting him, as well as several others too. The [...]

Must Love Dogs

December 20, 2006
I fail to see why producers of romantic comedies continually cross the line of acceptability for the family audience. Must Love Dogs is yet another example in a very long list of films that blows good taste right out of the water with foul language, sexual dialog, pre-marital sexual relationships [...]

The Family Stone – Filtered

May 2, 2006
There is a good plot to this movie about how a family comes together to realize that they need to be respectful. They learn that their mother is sick and things change for the better. The thing that prevents it from being a family-friendly film is the inclusion of a homosexual couple and how they [...]

The Thing Called Love – Filtered

March 7, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie was an OK watch but wasn’t really very intriguing. The music, which was supposed to be full of talent was mediocre and almost made me cringe at times. There are a couple of things to be aware of. There is an incident of implied pre-marital sex and the other is when one character [...]

Must Love Dogs – Filtered

December 20, 2005
"Must Love Dogs" is a cute movie about the difficulty of meeting and dating people later in life. The story was good and the acting was decent, but the content left quite a bit to be desired. The lead character is a divorcee who ends up sleeping with two guys during the movie (implied). Her family [...]

The Family Stone

"The Family Stone" is a tale about a dysfunctional family who all get together during Christmas and during the course of events find out about an upcoming tragedy. While I found the film slow at times, it did pick up toward the end. Unfortunately, the movie was rather transparent at times. Rife [...]
