Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films.

Lockout

April 13, 2012
In the latest episode of "Star Wars" meets "Escape from New York", the president's daughter is stranded on a space ship/penile colony where the inmates have just taken over.

Factory Girl

February 16, 2007
This Edie Sedgwick biopic tries to portray drug use in a negative light; however, this does not come until towards the end of the film, when Edie is in the grips of heroin addiction. Throughout the rest of the film, people smoke cigarettes constantly and there is also a good deal of drinking and [...]
