Little Fockers

December 22, 2010
Once again the Focker family and Byrnes family come together to bring their hilarious antics to the screen. This film is geared towards an adult audience with their sexual openness and innuendos. It does have some funny moments. But this is not a family film. Their discussions regarding sexual [...]

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Everybodys Fine

December 4, 2009

So he heads out and travels with the idea of seeing all four of his kids, two girls and two boys. One son is in trouble but the others keep it from him. Additional [...]

Righteous Kill

September 12, 2008
Make no mistake about it. "Righteous Kill" is not a righteous movie. It does, however, include killing. In fact, a priest who is a pedophile is killed in the film, so once again "Righteous Kill" doesn't seem like an accurate title. Even if you like fast-paced cop movies, the content of this film is [...]


August 10, 2007
Filled with all the magic and mystery of an adventurous fairy tale, "Stardust" will entertain the viewer. Although the movie is a bit long at two hours and slow at times, it is a very interesting story. There are the good guys against the bad guys, sword fights, a little romance, and throw in some [...]

The Good Shepherd

December 22, 2006
This movie is a fictitious story based on events surrounding the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961. While the actors perform well in their respective roles, the storyline is fractured by constant bouncing back and forth between 1939, 1941, 1960 and 1961. As a result, the screenplay does [...]

Shark Tale

October 1, 2004

Dove Approved for All Ages

As a movie designed to appeal to children, "Shark Tale" has a message that is morally fishy. First, Oscar the fish is an opportunist always looking to attain the easy life the easy way. He struggles with a gambling problem and borrows money from a mobster shark. Second, a great deal of deception [...]

Meet the Fockers

December 22, 2004
If you liked Meet the Parents, you will like Meet the Fockers. This fast paced sequel takes up where the first one left off. Unfortunately, this film is full of double entendre and sexual situations making it anything but a family movie. While the humor and situations may get an MPAA PG-13 [...]


April 30, 2004
"Godsend" deals with the heartfelt emotions of parental love, the study and experimentation of scientific scholars, and identity issues for a struggling child. Upsetting dreams leave him with two identities — who he is and who he was. Adam’s dreams are scary, and his involuntary movement in [...]

Analyze That

December 6, 2002
This sequel is even more vulgar than the original, "Analyze This" (1999). Much of the humor is cruel and demeaning and draws little laughter from viewers. The plot of "Analyze That" is entertaining, but it cannot be Dove approved because of the sexual content, violence and continuous bad [...]
