Dove Approved for All Ages

The Synopsis: When a new toy called "Forky" joins Woody and the gang, a road trip alongside old and new friends reveals how big the world can be for a toy. The Review: Time has paved many roads along the face of Toy Story as a franchise; a winding road, a face becoming startlingly older. [...]

Toy Story 3

Dove Approved for All Ages

This movie is delightfully clever! Any trepidation about this franchise maintaining imagination and freshness after two earlier movies can be chucked out the window. The "Toy Story" franchise is alive and as enjoyable in this third installment as in the previous two films. In this one, Andy is now [...]

Redbelt

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Dove Approved for All Ages

Even though Jack Frost (Martin Short) is as cold as they come, "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause" will warm your heart this holiday season. While I think the first film in the series is the best, this 3rd one keeps your interest and has some funny moments. The most magical one concerns the [...]

Wild Hogs

The previews make this film look like a hip comedy, with the male leads riding around on their motorcycles and discovering a little more about life along the way. It looks funny in the previews. Unfortunately, this film is not nearly as funny as it might appear on the surface. It does have a few [...]

The Shaggy Dog – Filtered

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 [...]

Christmas with the Kranks

March 8, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film is destined to become a Christmas favorite for years to come. I believe that special attention has been paid to make the film in such a way that most families will not be offended by its content. Since its MPAA rating of PG was given so close to its release date, I can only conclude that [...]
