actor: Jack Black

Be Kind Rewind

If possible, the viewer of this film would be better off if he/she could rewind this movie to the beginning and start over by making another film. Apart from the content issues in this film, which includes some strong language and sexual comments, the movie's jokes fall flat several times. The [...]

The Holiday

Unfortunately this intelligently written romantic comedy missed the mark with its inclusion of so many sexual situations and references. It was a treat to see Jack Black playing a sensitive role and almost shocking that the only f-bomb in the movie was NOT uttered by his character. With a playing [...]

Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny

Before this film even starts, the audience is treated to a tasteless cartoon sequence where Jack Black induces a cartooned version of Kyle Gass to pass so much gas that he shoots like a rocket off the screen. There is so much offensive language and subject matter in this film that I can easily say [...]

This film contains an abundance of typical Jack Black crude humor and sexual innuendo. Although the underlying storyline possesses potential it doesn’t manifest itself clearly enough to be awarded the Dove Seal; unfortunately, all the good this film has to offer is eclipsed by over-the-top [...]

King Kong (2005)

March 28, 2006
It is a shame that the language of this film has over twenty profanities in the dialog. Otherwise this movie could have been a film more family-friendly. However, that is not the case. This update of the Kong movie was directed by Peter Jackson, the director of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. As [...]

King Kong (2005) – Filtered

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

A great remake: this was a well-made movie. Three hours may be a bit long for some viewers. There were some things that prevent this movie from being appropriate for the very young. King Kong himself may be scary to younger viewer, especially when showing his gigantic teeth. A lot of chasing and [...]

Shark Tale – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

This was an awesome movie. Pixar always does a great job with animation, but Shark Tale went way beyond any of their other works I have seen so far. The reef that all of the fish lived in was a coral reef with all of the modern additions of downtown New York. The cast was amazing. Never have I seen [...]

Shark Tale

Dove Approved for All Ages

As a movie designed to appeal to children, "Shark Tale" has a message that is morally fishy. First, Oscar the fish is an opportunist always looking to attain the easy life the easy way. He struggles with a gambling problem and borrows money from a mobster shark. Second, a great deal of deception [...]


Envy has a lot of commendable content, but unfortunately packages it in a poorly written film that is filled with objectionable language. It does make an attempt to explore human nature and the evils that can consume a person. While the obvious topic at hand is envy, the film also deals with the [...]

School of Rock – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Since Jack Black often acts like a child, it makes sense that he would play a role that involves being around children. Jack lives with his submissive roommate and frequently has to deal with his shrew of a girlfriend. Jack loves rock' n' roll, but when he is kicked out of his own band, he doesn't [...]
