Ant-Man

July 17, 2015

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Ant-Man" is a pleasant surprise, much better than I anticipated. Sure, it's a Marvel movie, and most everyone loves Marvel, but who would have thought a movie about a man who shrinks to become "Ant-Man" would be any good? Yet it is, and very good, at that. It is action-packed, funny, and features [...]

And So It Goes

July 25, 2014
"And So It Goes" could be the title of where the movie stands as far as receiving our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. This movie is funny and engaging at times, but falls short in the content arena, and "so it goes" that it doesn't receive our Seal. Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are genuinely funny [...]

Last Vegas

November 1, 2013
"Last Vegas" brings together a talented cast when boyhood friends who are in their 60's reunite to hold a bachelor party for the only "never married" one of the group. Two of them hold a grudge for past wrongs but they finally settle the matter. The film is full of circumstances you would expect [...]

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

September 24, 2010
This movie, apart from not being a family-friendly film due to language and its sexual content, falls short in that the most interesting character, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), isn't in it for several scenes and although Shia LaBeouf and Josh Brolin are fine actors, the story just doesn't give [...]

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

May 1, 2009
First of all, the answer is yes, this is a chick flick. I am sure that a lot of women have met a man like Connor, who thinks that women are only worth it for one thing and it is not marriage. But just like Scrooge in the classic "Christmas Carol", Connor is shown the errors of his ways so he can [...]

You, Me and Dupree

July 14, 2006
This movie is laugh-out-loud funny during the course of its hour-and-fifty-minute length. Dupree totally upsets the household of newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson. He is a likable nut who is Carl's best friend, and even wears a "BM" sign on his shirt during Carl and Molly's wedding, which stands [...]

The Sentinel

April 21, 2006
Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland and Kim Basinger all perform very well together in this action/suspense/drama. "The Sentinel" does forecast some of its plot but the story remains fairly strong to the end. The situations are believable and it is interesting to see some of the inner workings of [...]

Don t Say A Word

September 28, 2001
If you saw Mel Gibson and Rene Russo in Ron Howard's kidnap thriller, "Ransom" you have an idea where "Don't Say a Word" is headed. The twist here is Michael Douglas's character is not a multi-millionaire, but a psychiatrist whose daughter gets kidnapped because one if his patients is keeping a [...]

One Night at McCools

April 27, 2001
This heavy-handed sex farce is filled with dopey, unlikable characters, and not much else. Most of the humor rests on crude, and sometimes deviant sexual activity, while the rest of the humor is drained out of a poor soul whose life is destroyed by a psychopath with one aim - owning a home, [...]

Traffic

December 27, 2000
It’s brilliant! Engrossing from start to finish, with exceptional performances, “Traffic” is exceptional filmmaking with something important to say. Most viewers will leave the theater knowing more about this insidious multi-billion dollar industry than when they walked in. In a way, [...]
