Breaking In

May 11, 2018
This movie uses a new approach to celebrate Mother's Day! This is one suspenseful movie that features a really tough lady—Shaun Russell (Gabrielle Union), who is willing to do anything, including sacrificing herself, for her two children.

Think Like a Man

April 20, 2012
While funny at times, this film was an example of just how low our standards have become when selecting a companion. Men can be shallow and so can women but we are shown just how devious each sex can be when they attempt to get what they want. The premise of this movie is that four women all read [...]

Good Deeds, Tyler Perrys

February 24, 2012
Tyler Perry's movies genuinely just miss receiving our Dove Seal due to content issues and guess what? It is the same for this movie as well. There are a couple of "Go to H***" comments and we don't award our Dove Seal to movies which contain this curse. The sex content also registers a three, [...]

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 [...]

There is a lot to like about this film. It shows a father who sincerely loves his three daughters and [...]

The Honeymooners

June 10, 2005
I am pleasantly surprised that Cedric the Entertainer kept the foul language somewhat under control. He didn't use any profanities and didn't use the f-word. How delightful he was as Ralph Kramden. At times he even sounded like Jackie Gleason. This film was much better than I thought it would be. [...]
