The Shaggy Dog – Filtered

August 1, 2006

Dove Approved for All Ages

This was a great family film. The film shows how a father goes from pretty much non-existent in his family's life to realizing he needs to be a part of them. He also learns that family is more important than his job. The once rebellious daughter changes once her father gives her the attention she [...]

The Shaggy Dog

Dove Approved for All Ages

I must admit I had lowered my expectations for "The Shaggy Dog," seeing it was a remake and most of those do not turn out well. Also, the premise of a man turning into a dog seemed rather silly; and maybe it is, but when the man is Tim Allen, it works! I was pleasantly surprised as this was a [...]

Made in 2001, Ozzie is a story of a talking koala bear. It is a charming story about the adventure Ozzie goes on when he finds himself kidnapped from his home.

The Santa Clause 2

Dove Approved for All Ages

"The Santa Clause 2" is the wonderful continuation of the first movie. Tim Allen plays the role of Santa Claus, who will lose the job if he doesn't get married by Christmas Eve. This fun film is great to watch with the entire family. Many times sequels doesn't live up to first films, but I thought [...]

The Kid

Dove Approved for All Ages

One of the best episodes of TV’s “Northern Exposure” had Maggie, the female lead, meeting herself as a teenager. I thought it was one of the most clever and original ideas to come to the “boob tube.” Now, some ten years later, the same clever and original idea has come to the big screen. [...]
