Dove Approved for All Ages

"Seven Days in Utopia" is one of those rare finds among motion pictures these days. It is refreshing to see a well-made feature film that has many simple faith messages in it without being preachy. Luke Chisolm is a young golfer who has lost his focus and needs a mentor. Along comes Johnny [...]

The Jane Austen Book Club

Ratz

Dove Approved for All Ages

“Ratz” is a clever, entertaining fantasy for the entire family. Vanessa Lengies and Caroline Elliott are charmers as geeky ducklings, who will no doubt soon be lovely swans. They are real teenagers, with the word “like” used to begin nearly every thought. And, of course, each awkward moment [...]

Season For Miracles

November 29, 1999

Dove Approved for All Ages

Corny and contrived, A Season For Miracles is certainly not Hallmark Hall of Fame’s finest two hours. Set at Christmas time in a Southern town called Bethlehem – I guess signifying a place where miracles happen - the producers would have done well to watch a segment or two of Touched By An [...]
