Rio

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Rio" is a remarkable visually breath-taking adventure with vivid colors and plenty of action. There is some humor too that the adults will appreciate along with the kids. A lively opening sequence kicks it off with a peppy song about Rio and a bird's tail shaking to the rhythm. Then we are [...]

The Spy Next Door

January 15, 2010

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie is a funny and rollicking good time! The family will enjoy this witty and action-packed movie. I wish Jackie Chan (the spy in the film) lived next door to me.

I don't think I will go that far, but kids and parents can enjoy this one together. George Lopez winds up with most of the good lines, as he voices Papi, [...]

Balls of Fury

August 29, 2007
Randy Dakota has to rejoin the competitive sport of ping pong to bring down the man who killed his father nearly twenty years earlier. This is much as you would expect from a film with this type of title as the humor was mostly sophomoric in nature. It was full of sexual innuendo, discussion of [...]

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D

June 10, 2005

Dove Approved for All Ages

This film displays an almost cartoonish take on a family with issues. Max is a dreamer. His father is unwilling to grow up. His mother is stern and unyielding, and his teacher, played by George Lopez, is domineering and full of politically correct speeches. Something to view with concern in this [...]
