Dodgeball – Edited

Dove Approved for All Ages

I loved this movie. With both Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn together, they just feed off of each other and make the movie just that much funnier. Vince Vaughn is the owner of a not-well-utilized, supposedly second rate gym. He and the few people who are regulars at his gym find out that the jerk who [...]

Men In Black 2 – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Once again the Men in Black are back to save the world. They kept all of the great special effects and gadgets they had in the first movie, but this time they face a little more formitable opponent. The editing in this movie was well done. There is no inappropriate language, sex or nudity. Still I [...]

Wonder Boys

A person who has had great success early in his life is referred to as a wonder boy. The wonder boys in this film must face the fear and insecurity of forever living up to past accomplishments. And at 50, Grady is still trying to figure out who he is. He turns to most everything but a spiritual [...]

Vision of Murder

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

We do approve this film due to its lack of graphic brutality and due to the nurturing aspect of Donielle for her daughter. We do suggest caution, however. Like “Rear Window” and other well-made thrillers, this is an edge-of-your-seat mystery. Well acted by Ms. Gilbert, it is, however, a film [...]

The Cincinnati Kid – Filtered

The Cincinnati Kid is a film about a man who is very good at poker. He challenges the best poker player to a match. He stops the dealer from cheating and he ends up loosing everything he has + $5,000. It was somewhat captivating but not approved because of the inappropriate sexual [...]
