Dove Approved for All Ages

Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel have outdone themselves with the wonderfully funny script that they created for this film. There is no objectionable language in this picture and the only thing even remotely in bad taste is a "fake farting" scene. Aside from that, you will be amazed by the [...]
