The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

August 11, 2017

Dove Approved for All Ages

"The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature" plays like an old "Tom and Jerry" serial, in that it the film moves like a series of comic tete a tete comebacks. The result makes for a colorful, playful moviegoing experience, and for this particular summer filled action pictures that may not be suitable for [...]

Unforgettable (2017)

April 21, 2017
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

The Nut Job

January 17, 2014

Dove Approved for All Ages

This marvelous film is about the power of unity and friendship. Surly the squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) is out to find nuts for himself and isn't concerned about the needs of the entire park, including the female squirrel Andie (Katherine Heigl) or Raccoon (Liam Neeson) or any other member of [...]

The Big Wedding

April 26, 2013
The Big Wedding is the story of a dysfunctional, blended family that is trying to reconcile and forgive one another for past indiscretions, and there are many! This is a comedy which is supposed to add a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. This "medicine" however is debauchery, nudity, [...]

One for the Money

January 27, 2012
The viewer will have to suspend a lot of belief in order to follow this one faithfully. It seems very unlikely that the likable Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl) could become a recovery agent for a bail bonding company, in fact working for her cousin who actually kissed her in a sleazy way on her [...]

Life as we Know it

October 8, 2010
This movie is at least partially targeted toward parents, the sleep-deprived teachers and child guardians who deal with potty issues, feeding time, crying and also the rewards that pop up from time to time. The film features some funny moments including one in which Holly Berenson (Katherine Heigl) [...]

Killers

June 4, 2010
Although a few young women chuckled at some of the banter on screen between Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher) and his new wife Jen (Katherine Heigl) in "Killers" at the screening I attended, much of the story was slow and plodding and featured a lot of sweetness and fluff until about the middle of the [...]

The Ugly Truth

July 24, 2009
The ugly truth about "The Ugly Truth" is that it is far from a family movie for Mom, Dad and the kids. It has a ton of sexual innuendos and frank sexual comments, in addition to strong language. At one point a main character, after listening to a lot of talk about sex along with some slang, says, [...]

Knocked Up

June 1, 2007
At the heart of this film is a good story about making the best out of a bad situation and doing what is right. However, this movie, “Knocked Up”, was not approved by Dove for several reasons, including sexuality, language, nudity, and drug use throughout the film. After a one-night stand, an [...]

It's hard not to be enchanted by this beautiful love story about a girl whose young love dies out in the west where there are no settlements for miles.
