The Kitchen

August 9, 2019
The Kitchen is Widows-light and violence-heavy. Dove audiences won't go for the language, the boozing, the wife-abusing and definitely not the corpse-dismembering, where we even hear bones snapping for full effect. Viewed in the most favorable light, the movie might leave room to discuss the [...]

Fifty Shades Darker

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Moneyball

September 23, 2011
I wish we could give "Moneyball" our Dove Seal. If not for language we could. It is an intelligent and funny movie and Brad Pitt, if you will excuse the expression, hits it out of the park in his role as Billy Beane, the former promising baseball prospect who never quite achieved his potential but [...]

Fright Night 3D (2011)

August 19, 2011
All right, now I know why this film is in 3D. So when blood is sprayed it looks like it comes right at the viewer. Oh, how nice. It isn't very well done though which kind of adds insult to injury. In addition, one of the movie's main characters, the host of a supernatural TV show, disappears for [...]

Priest 3D

May 13, 2011
"Priest" includes scenes of prayer and a character who literally takes a leap of faith near the end to try to save the day. A few scriptures are quoted as well including, "God is my refuge." Two priests, a man and a woman, agree that they want to please God, not necessarily the church. Christopher [...]

Brothers

December 4, 2009
This is a powerful story which gets into the head of a soldier who is tortured in Afghanistan and who returns home a changed man. He is the father of two girls and one of his daughters is frightened of him when he returns, sensing the change and the boiling pot he has become. He accuses his wife of [...]

The Love Guru

June 20, 2008
"The Love Guru” attempts a comedy take on professional sports, love, and religion. The movie in parts repeated itself. It was also hard to follow and it dragged in certain spots. There are a a lot of sexual references. It is very funny at times. However, this show is definitely not for kids. Some [...]
