Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is an amazing story about Manny Pacquiao, a boy that grew up in poverty in the Philippines and without a father, forced to work at a young age to support his mother and siblings, only to become an eight-time world champion in boxing. As Liam Neeson, the narrator says, "Boxing is the cruelest [...]

Lone Survivor

January 10, 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.

2 Guns

August 2, 2013
"2 Guns" is an action packed movie about two undercover government agents who are unwittingly duped into robbing a bank. However, the score is much larger than originally believed and they suddenly realize that they've been had. The rest of the film takes the audience on a thrill ride of a chase [...]

Pain and Gain

April 26, 2013
I have rarely been as offended by the content of a film as I was with this one. The title should be "All Pain and No Gain" because that's what I felt 15 minutes into the film when I walked out of the theater. The beginning of this movie contained more sex, language and drug use than most of the [...]

They are uttered often and throughout the entire movie. Crowe plays the Mayor of New York City who is campaigning for [...]

Contraband

January 13, 2012
The story is intriguing as Mark Wahlberg plays Chris Farraday who abandoned his life of crime years ago but who re-enters the world of the underground in order to get his brother-in-law out of a serious jam. This fast-paced thriller showcases a cat-and-mouse chase and the tide switching back and [...]

The Fighter

December 17, 2010
"The Fighter" is a realistic drama with strong performances from all, particularly the lead three of Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. Wahlberg plays Micky Ward, a talented boxer who is guided by his elder brother Dicky (Bale). Dicky came close to being a champion boxer but drugs and [...]

The Other Guys

August 6, 2010
"The Other Guys" uses Mark Wahlberg as the straight man and Will Ferrell (of course) as the funny man in this film that attempts to make jokes out of things not always considered funny. In fact, a crooked financial adviser in the story is not something a lot of people will roar at in light of [...]
