Still Alice

January 16, 2015
"Still Alice" is a poignant and touching drama about the effects of Alzheimer's in the life of Alice Howland (stunningly played by Julianne Moore). Moore does an incredible job capturing the progression of the disease, and yet this progression is her regression from an intelligent and articulate [...]

Straw Dogs

September 16, 2011
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 [...]

Gambling can be addictive and become a serious problem for some people. The characters in this film think they have it figured out because they are not "gambling", they are "counting cards and playing a system with definite rules". But the glitz, glamor and high of winning gets to even the most [...]

Superman Returns (2006)

June 28, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film is pretty good. In my opinion it is a bit excessive at times in the special effects department; also, the story didn't settle down much, as there seemed to be too much to tell. Then again, Superman has been gone for five years in the film, and off the screen for many more years than that, [...]

Bee Season

November 11, 2005
It's unfortunate that "Bee Season" cannot be approved due to language because the overarching theme of the movie is one worthy of discussion. It's a deeply moving story about a Jewish family and their individual pursuits of a one-on-one relationship with God. Be prepared! This is by no means a [...]

Win a Date with Tad Hamilton

January 23, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The film refreshingly treats homespun West Virginia as superior to glamorous Hollywood. Rosalee and her community are presented as decent, intelligent people who work hard. Rosalee’s honesty and sincerity serve as a wake-up call for egotistical Tad. For some viewers, the absence of premarital sex [...]

Blue Crush

August 16, 2002
Although scenes show surfing enthusiasts of all ages, including some canine surfers, the film also emphasizes the danger of the sport. Skimpy bikinis and low-cut party dresses will no doubt add to young male interest. One scene features lengthy exposure of a used condom. Matt and Anne Marie quickly [...]
