Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Eddie Murphy may just be the best and most prolific family-friendly actor in Hollywood today. I count five of his previous films that have received the Dove Seal (Shrek, Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, Daddy Day Care and Dr. Doolittle 2) and this wonderful family-friendly film makes number six. Eddie [...]

Role Models

Two guys that do not know a lot about kids are ordered to be mentors. Not only are these guys not the usual type for this role but they get two kids that are not the "normal" either. As they all try to get through this situation they find a few surprises about themselves. The concept of this [...]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

I don’t even know where to begin to describe this film. I will say that IN NO WAY should your children be allowed to watch this movie. If you allow them to, they will be exposed to some extreme images. It is raunchy and vulgar to the extreme. The material in this film is strongly graphic and [...]


Although this is a comedy I did not find much humor in the entire film. There is under age drinking, a hazing at a college frat house and some political understatements. I am not quite sure who would really want to see this movie. At times it makes our present President look like a complete idiot [...]

This is to say it is a very long version that could have been edited more to make the story move a little faster. It's cute at times and will provide you some laughs. It [...]


In this campy take on the aliens/slasher film genre, we are exposed to every degree of gore and language you can imagine. I was almost looking forward to watching a comedic variation of some of the gore fests I have had the unfortunate privilege of reviewing lately. Well, language and blood made [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I have to admit that I saw this film when it first came out in theaters and found it to carry a wonderful story that was inspiring but was marred by a ton of crude, obscene and profane language. I walked out of the theater expressing my disappointment that the film-maker chose to include that type [...]

Charlie’s Angels (2019)

Charlie's Angels is a reboot of a reboot! Yet, it stands out as director and actress Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) promotes the power of united women who can face any obstacle, even international enemies. Banks plays Bosley but not the Bosley of TV fame, past movies, or even the only Bosley. [...]
