A Thousand Words

March 9, 2012
Talk about a movie having two sides to it. On the one hand Eddie Murphy's character, Jack McCall, learns a lesson in this film, actually two, and they are that family must be a priority and letting go of anger and forgiveness is essential in order for one to have peace. And we hear a weighty [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Eddie Murphy may just be the best and most prolific family-friendly actor in Hollywood today.

Despite the many jokes about Reeves acting ability and range, this is one of those movies where he gets a [...]

Ready To Rumble

April 7, 2000
With the whole movie-taking place around professional wrestling, there is much blood and violence. Also found in the world of wrestling are many scantily clad girls, of which there is no shortage here in this movie. The language gets a little harsh, with numerous expletives, "Jesus" being [...]
