Meet the Blacks (2016)

April 1, 2016
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 [...]

Next Day Air

May 8, 2009
When I first read about this film, it sounded as if a few of the content areas might not be so bad. That is not the case with this film. Only one category out of the six content listings below was under a four in the rating, and that was the "other" category. Even though it is a comedy, I found [...]

Open Season 2

January 27, 2008

Dove Approved for All Ages

The delightful characters for "Open Season" are back in this adventure. The gang of wild life are out to rescue their friend "Mr. Weenie" whom they believe is being taken against his will. The voice cast may be different but some things are the same as the original, for example the crude humor [...]

He teaches her there [...]

Roll Bounce

September 23, 2005
This movie had some very humorous parts, especially when the kids are constantly teasing each other about anything and everything. It seemed like there was merely a fun film, with no serous plot intended. However, there are some good family lessons learned, coupled with a few emotional scenes. [...]

The Honeymooners

June 10, 2005
I am pleasantly surprised that Cedric the Entertainer kept the foul language somewhat under control. He didn't use any profanities and didn't use the f-word. How delightful he was as Ralph Kramden. At times he even sounded like Jackie Gleason. This film was much better than I thought it would be. [...]

The Fighting Temptations

February 3, 2004
This movie is a bit of an oxymoron. It is a faith-based film which shows and speaks of sin a bit too graphically for us to be able to award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal as a family-friendly picture. There are sexual innuendos, comments and some suggestive dancing as well as some strong [...]

All About the Benjamins

March 8, 2002
"All About the Benjamins," as in Benjamin Franklin, whose face is on the hundred dollar bill, is basically about greed. Bucum is forced to take Reggie along as a partner, since that’s the only way Reggie will reveal what he knows about the diamonds. Joining with someone against crime seems like [...]
