Tusk

September 19, 2014
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 [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

You have to love Alvin! He's back with a new adventure and plenty of laughs. Alvin might actually believe it when he finds himself at the bow of a ship and shouts, "I'm the king of the world!"

Alpha and Omega

September 17, 2010

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a charming tale about overcoming diversity. It is also a story about overcoming adversity. Kate (Hayden Panettiere) is an Alpha wolf and expected to be leader of her pack of wolves. She is even assigned an Alpha mate, Garth (Chris Carmack). Poor Humphrey (Justin Long) is an Omega wolf and [...]

Going the Distance

September 3, 2010
Unfortunately for those searching for a good family movie for the weekend, this one isn't it and in fact it definitely earns its R rating. There is brief rear male nudity, very strong language, sexual situations and frank sexual comments and, well, you get the idea. The plot revolves around [...]

Planet 51

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is an imaginative movie and, in my opinion, pretty entertaining. In fact, if I have any quibble with the movie it is that it contained so much action and amazing things happening on the screen, that it didn't slow down any to let you catch your breath. This is one movie in which if you took a [...]

Drag Me to Hell

May 29, 2009
Okay, I figure most people are going to recognize by the genre and title of this film that it is not a family movie. There are a few scenes in the film in which normal things happen like a young woman waiting to hear about a promotion she might get at work; the young woman giving a gift to her [...]

Live Free or Die Hard

June 27, 2007
This film has almost non-stop action and there are some funny moments in it. Willis basically does a self-parody of the ridiculous stunts he survives time after time. At one point when he takes out a helicopter with a car, he says, "I was out of bullets!" However, the thing that really nagged me [...]

Accepted

August 18, 2006
When a group of friends who don't get accepted into any colleges invent their own school, with a not-so-clever acronym (South Harmon Institute of Technology), all the stereotypes of what college students would rather be doing besides studying are reinforced once again. "Accepted" tries to be a [...]
