Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Make no mistake about it. This movie has a lot of battle scenes and sword fights in it in addition to fire-breathing creatures. Yet as it briskly moves ahead on the big screen there is a lot to like and enjoy. The film features some of the best special effects, i.e. CGI work, I have seen in a film. [...]

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

July 21, 2006
Let's start with a couple of positives. Luke Wilson plays his role very earnestly in this film and does a great job acting. Uma Thurman also adds some nuances and is believable as a jealous woman who becomes a scorned woman and takes her superhero powers out on her former boyfriend Matt (Wilson). [...]

The Producers (2005)

December 25, 2005
"The Producers" is a racy film with a capital "R." There are too many sexual references to remember them all. During the screening I attended I saw a mother walking out with her teenaged daughter.

While the discussion of culture and how differing religious priorities can play a major role in the success or demise of a relationship made this movie somewhat interesting, overall I found the film to be discouraging and unworthy of such great film actors as Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman. The film [...]

Be Cool

March 4, 2005
The Rock and Vince Vaughn were hilarious in this film as was Cedric the Entertainer. Those, combined with some clever actions of Chili Palmer (Travolta), were the only benefits of sitting through “Be Cool.” The movie just dragged on too long (I know two hours isn’t long, but it seemed that [...]

Kill Bill Vol. 2

April 16, 2004
Like its predecessor, Kill Bill Vol. 2 is extremely violent. The carnage is less severe than in Vol. 1, with more talking and less killing, but that does not diminish the sick and sadistic nature of the film. Apart from extreme and sadistic violence, Vol. 2 also contains some objectionable [...]

Kill Bill, Vol. 1

October 10, 2003
Extreme acts of violence and otherwise horrific decapitations are made to seem commonplace and comical. The film contains a lot of offensive language and some strong sexual content. Stay away from this [...]

The War with Grandpa

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

When Grandpa (Robert De Niro) begrudgingly moves in with his insistent daughter, Sally (Uma Thurman) and family, he’s given his 12-year-old grandson, Peter’s (Oakes Fegley) room. Peter gets bumped to the ratty, batty, dusty attic, and begins to stew. The family loves Grandpa, and shares an [...]
