Norm of the North

April 19, 2016

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Norm of the North" is a witty animated film that drew some laugh-out-loud moments from the kids in the audience I screened it with. One of these comedic moments featured Norm, the polar bear, in the beginning of the movie dancing and shaking his rear. One of the tourists takes his photo and tells [...]

June 9, 2009

Dove Approved for All Ages

Based on the great classic novel of the same name by Johann David Wyss, this original Canadian Television series of 26 episodes, takes you on the adventure with the Robinson family. Produced in 1976 before reality TV, this story displayed the trying times of survival one family had to endure on a [...]

The Hangover

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Cake – Filtered

February 14, 2006
"Cake" is far from a family friendly film. It is filled with elements such as drinking, smoking, implied sex, cleavage, and a pre-marital pregnancy. Marriage is portrayed as a foolish thing throughout the whole movie by the main character until she happens to fall in love at the end. This film [...]

Lost in Space: Edited

January 22, 2002

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This live-action movie is based on the classic TV series from the 1960s. The special effects are amazing for the most part, but a chimp-like creature called Blarp is obviously a CGI creation. The effects don't make up for a less than stellar story line. The film simply does not have the innocent [...]

Say It Isnt So

I don't know exactly where to begin describing this sub-sophomoric piece of wasted celluloid. The story is about a boy named Gilly (Chris Klein) and a girl named Jo (Heather Graham) who fall in love and "do it" only to discover later that they are siblings. But, wait! They are not really related [...]

Committed

Sadly, the concept of permanence in marriage is ripe for parody in a land where 50% of newlyweds wind up in divorce court. Ultimately, the film is not about staying committed, but about knowing when to let go. The abusive language, which consists of nearly 50 obscenities and profanities, and the [...]
