Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Gallows Road" does a terrific job showing that forgiveness is possible even in the most difficult situations. It also clearly demonstrates that a person can redeem bad decisions by making good ones.

This movie is a delightful journey into the imagination!

Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous

March 24, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

One of my favorite actresses is Sandra Bullock so I am pleased when Dove can award the Dove Seal to any movie in which she stars. Dove couldn't approve the original "Miss Congeniality" because of some profanities. But in this sequel, Producer Sandra Bullock has toned down the language enough for us [...]

Miss Congeniality

December 22, 2000
Sandra Bullock is as likeable, charismatic and pretty as a person can get. (Don’t think she’s all that pretty? Wait until you see her made up as a beauty contestant!) As for the story, well, it’s not original, suspenseful, or even all that funny. The best that can be said for this [...]

Watcher

September 8, 2000
An effective cat and mouse thriller that fascinates the viewer, but the sadistic pleasure the madman gets out of tormenting the law and his victims becomes unnerving. Also troubling, is the impish characterization Reeves gives his nutcase. He’s witty, buffed and skilled. He’s more steamy [...]

There are some interesting suspenseful moments including what will happen to people on a plane when it is attacked, and when the gorillas will attack and what will happen as a result. As a family [...]
