The Good Dinosaur

November 25, 2015

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"The Good Dinosaur" will make the family laugh! Several kids, who were in the audience when I screened the film, laughed out loud several times. In one scene, a crawling, small boy named "Spot," who resembles a miniature caveman, peed behind a rock, and the kids laughed a lot on that one. But don't [...]

A Perfect Getaway

August 7, 2009
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 [...]

Unstable Fables: 3 Pigs and a Baby

February 1, 2008

Dove Approved for All Ages

When I was a young child, I loved to tell the tale of the three little pigs. The tale is there with just a little twist that everyone will enjoy and a few lessons might even come to the viewer's attention. With celebrities' voices that are highly recognized, it adds fantastic personality to each [...]

Strange Wilderness

February 1, 2008
This is by far the worst movie so far in 2008 and maybe of all time. There were four other people in the audience with me less than 24 hours after this film opened. It means that audiences might be showing some common sense and maybe doing their research on film content by not going to this loser. [...]

Chicken Little (Digital 3D)

November 4, 2005

Dove Approved for All Ages

'Wow' is the best way to start this review. I was fortunate enough to have screened this at a local multiplex with a new Digital projection system allowing us to wear the free 3D glasses that have Polaroid lenses. This enabled the filmmakers to present an intense, colorful, Hi-Definition world [...]

Sahara

April 8, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Sahara" is another PG-13 rated film that shows restraint in regard to offensive content. While there are many violent scenes, they are not graphic in nature and do not show too much detail. There are scenes with bullets flying but no graphic killings or injuries are shown. Things blow up with [...]

Joy Ride

October 5, 2001
JOY RIDE provides a few surprises, but more than enough bad dialogue and ridiculous coincidences for any one movie. While it appears that Lewis and Fuller learn their lesson about playing pranks on people, plenty of objectionable content fills the film. Foul language is the chief offender, with [...]

Saving Silverman

February 9, 2001
In the past week, I have seen two films featuring a man taking a bowel movement. This one also features a buttocks enhancement operation where we see a device placed under the skin of a buttocks. And it is sad to report that there are writers in Hollywood who still believe dimwits uttering [...]

Mr and Mrs Little go to the orphanage to get a little brother for their son, George. But when he gets home, George is none too thrilled with the littlest Little! Through one adventure after another, Stuart has to learn some hard lessons. He has obstacles to overcome, both physically and [...]
