Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Nine Lives" is a hilarious comedy about a man who is a big mogul in almost everything in his life.

Men In Black 3

May 25, 2012
It's a shame a few strong utterances of language and the fact the film crosses the acceptable level in violence on our content chart occurs in this movie because it is an imaginative and, at times, laugh-out-loud picture.

It should be noted that there are several incidents of this kind of [...]

Remarkably, the foul language, which made the original largely unacceptable, has been greatly [...]

Big Trouble

April 5, 2002
Aside from a prayerful Hispanic housemaid who beats off the advances of her sleazy, adulterous boss and a hippie, “Jesus look-alike” who quotes Genesis, there are few redeeming elements in this film. Three different characters show no qualms about adultery. The dialogue is filled with sexually [...]
