Jack Reacher

December 21, 2012
This movie is witty and features an interesting plot but the language and violence crosses our acceptable levels of family-friendly viewing. A man accused of murder asks for Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise), an ex-military investigator. Reacher winds up working with a beautiful defense lawyer and the [...]

Killing Them Softly

November 30, 2012
I find the title of this film to be ironic. There is no soft killing in this movie, only flat out graphic killing with blood spurting and flying. One scene features a man being beaten up and the blood literally pours from his mouth and nose, he coughs up blood, and then vomits to boot. He vomits on [...]

This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Dear John

February 5, 2010
The title of this film obviously gives it away that a certain letter will be mailed to the main male character in the story and he happens to be named John, played by actor Channing Tatum. The story delves into some interesting themes including John's relationship with his father and how John's [...]

Say It Isnt So

March 23, 2001
I don't know exactly where to begin describing this sub-sophomoric piece of wasted celluloid. The story is about a boy named Gilly (Chris Klein) and a girl named Jo (Heather Graham) who fall in love and "do it" only to discover later that they are siblings. But, wait! They are not really related [...]

Me, Myself and Irene

June 23, 2000
If you've ever seen a Farrelly Brothers movie (There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, etc.), then you know just what to expect from them - a total gross-out comedy. This one does not disappoint. It is also classic Jim Carrey, full of unbelievable facial expressions and odd body movements. [...]
