actor: Will Ferrell

Downhill

Aah, vacation. A time to get away and reconnect with your loved ones. But for Pete, reconnecting may be more difficult than he anticipated. After a beautiful day on the slopes, Pete and Billie and their two boys are catching a break while they decide on what’s for lunch. While waiting for the [...]

Daddy’s Home 2

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are back as the hilarious daddy-duo, Brad and Dusty, in this funny holiday-themed sequel. Brad (Farrell) and Dusty (Wahlberg) have put aside their differences from the first film and are now the loving, attentive co-patriarchs of a flourishing blended family. Brad is [...]

The House

Scott and Kate's devotion to their daughter Alex is undeniable. And parental love is to be highly commended. However, Alex's parents have been irresponsible with their money habits and their budget—or lack of a budget—and they can't pay for Alex to attend college. Enter their friend Frank [...]

Zoolander 2

"Zoolander 2" is the follow up to 2001's first "Zoolander" movie and, to quote our Dove Foundation reviewer, Dick Rolfe, it was a "tasteless loser." If I may borrow that line from Mr. Rolfe, that pretty much sums up "Zoolander 2." Other than maybe two or three laughs at the most -- and that is [...]

Daddy’s Home

"Daddy's Home" contains a few laugh-out-loud moments and a positive statement about an ex-husband getting along with the wife's current husband for the sake of the children. Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) comes back into the life of his ex-wife, Sara (Linda Cardellini), with the idea to win her back [...]

This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we [...]

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

This movie is certainly a paradox. On the one hand, it does have some very funny moments including one scene in which Julius Caesar is mentioned and Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) comments that he doesn't follow the NBA much, thinking it is Julius Irving being mentioned. The outrageous and [...]

This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Megamind

February 25, 2011

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Megamind" is a wildly imaginative movie. The 3D effects, the animation, the pranks and pratfalls and characters, all are combined and result in an effective film that holds the audience's attention for the ninety six minute runtime. In addition, I heard a lot of laughter during the screening I [...]

The Other Guys

"The Other Guys" uses Mark Wahlberg as the straight man and Will Ferrell (of course) as the funny man in this film that attempts to make jokes out of things not always considered funny. In fact, a crooked financial adviser in the story is not something a lot of people will roar at in light of [...]
