The Haunted Mansion – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Unlike Disney's Pirates of the Carribean, this film based on their theme park attraction will not win any Academy Awards. However, this timeless good vs. evil tale will entertain many audiances familiar with Eddie Murphy's wacky acting style. Their are a few intense scenes with skeletons coming [...]

Dr. Dolittle 2 – Edited

January 15, 2004

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is good family viewing. Kids will love watching Dr. D. talk to the animals, as he did in the original version. The topic is timely: save the forest from the cut and slash people who're leveling every tree. This is really good viewing for families with young [...]

The Haunted Mansion

November 27, 2003
The theatre was packed the night I saw this, and my initial thought was: "Eddie Murphy must be very bored with his life, or really needy financially to have agreed to do this movie". Eddie Murphy's a very funny man and has done some really good movies that people have enjoyed. This isn't one of [...]

Daddy Day Care

Dove Approved for All Ages

Apart from a few profanities and some bathroom humor, the film is comparatively clean and even has some positive messages. In the beginning of the movie Charlie is devoted to work and earning money while missing out on his child's life, but in the end he sacrifices a better paying job to spend time [...]

I Spy – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The unexpected twists in this movie kept my attention until the end. Thanks to the editing, Eddie Murphy was surprisingly entertaining. Unfortunately, there is still an exceeding amount of violence in the film, even with the edits. There is one incident of stabbing as well as lots of shooting, [...]

Dr. Dolittle 2

August 27, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Continuing the funny premise that humans can hear animals talk makes this sequel a fun and lighthearted story about how important it is to stick together and help each other out. The comedy is skewed from an animal's perspective and ranges everything from domesticated animals seeking therapy, to [...]

Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

Although Mr. Murphy breaks me up, he just can’t get very far from crudity and profanity. “The Nutty Professor: 2” is rated PG-13 for one crude sexual comment after another. When humor isn’t extracted from broad sexual innuendo, Mr. Murphy turns to gross-out visuals, jokes about old age [...]

Dr. Dolittle (1998)

August 3, 1999
This film could have been a funny family film. Instead, the language under our Dove content area knocks it out of our approval perimeter. There is strong language and many crude words. There is everything in it from rat flatulence to a monkey drinking. There is also sexual innuendo in it but it is [...]
