Choose Your Own Adventure: The Abominable Snowman

Dove Approved for All Ages

Here is a fantastic concept for a DVD. I remember my daughter having a book when she was in school that made her decide where the adventure in the book was going to take her. This great DVD takes you on an adventure by employing the same concept. Teaching your children how to make choices, and [...]

Cody Banks – Edited

November 11, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Agent Cody Banks is a funny film with some moderate violence and a good bit of sensual content. That is why Dove gives it a 12+ rating. There is a segment of the film where he freezes up when he talks to girls. When he does this his classmate friends say "what are you in special ed or something." [...]

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London

The light, upbeat nature of this movie is a contrast to the more common teenage party films. The romance between Banks and British Secret Service counterpart Emily (Hannah Spearrit) remains appropriate. This movie is missing the blatant sexual humor and the drug and alcohol use, but there are still [...]

Lizzie McGuire is a hot new television series that you can now get on Disney DVD. Lizzie is in middle school and always has adventures of a lifetime.

Dove Approved for All Ages

Frankie Muniz is a fun actor to watch. Even when he is up to no good, he has a likeable innocence about his nature. Just like his character in Malcolm in the Middle, Jason Shepherd is a quick thinking intelligent kid whom at first puts these qualities into getting out of things rather than into [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Agent Cody Banks is a funny film. It has some great special effects. It has a bit of the “ James Bond “ flair to it. Due to the language, we recommend this DVD for ages 12 and older. There is a reference to being in Special Education which some viewers may find offensive. For the most part, it [...]

Big Fat Liar

September 24, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The film does include one mild obscenity and a couple of crude comments made by a grandmother for laughs, and plenty of "Home Alone" style, mild slapstick violence is inflicted on Marty. Bad guy Marty also berates and belittles all those around him, but that behavior is clearly frowned upon. Other [...]

My Dog Skip

July 11, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Set in WWII-era Mississippi, the film has a Norman Rockwell ambiance, gentle enough for little ones, but also involving enough for older kids and their parents. Funny, yet, poignant, My Dog Skip reminds us of what a great gift man’s best friend really is. Tenaciously loyal, indomitably forgiving, [...]
