The Synopsis: Sometimes, it’s just in your DNA. That’s how police detective Andre Davis (Chadwick Boseman) felt about working for NYPD. But when he is called to investigate the brutal murders of seven police officers during a drug heist gone bad, he has to decide if he’s strong enough to get [...]

The Spy Next Door

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie is a funny and rollicking good time! The family will enjoy this witty and action-packed movie. I wish Jackie Chan (the spy in the film) lived next door to me. He is the main source of fun in the film. Chan plays Bob Ho. His girlfriend Gillian (Amber Valletta) thinks he is a serious man [...]

The Pink Panther 2

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Inspector Clouseau is back (Steve Martin) in his second turn in a "Pink Panther" movie. The film definitely has its moments of humor, most of them as a result of the bumbling inspector. When some new members (known as the Dream Team) join his force to find the criminal known as Tornado, they want [...]

The Pink Panther (2006)

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This film is hilarious in spots, with Steve Martin's bumbling Inspector Clouseau revealing how inept he can be at one moment, and yet brilliant in other moments. The audience I viewed the film with roared at times as the inspector made note of such things as a murder victim "falling perfectly [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The only way to see a movie like this is with a theater full of kids. Aside from the fact that they are the target audience for this movie anyway, it helps to be reminded that as an adult who has to sit by and watch as childlike Arquette maneuvers through scene after scene of Buster Keaton style [...]

Joe Dirt

THE GOOD:...No matter how bad the script (and this one is pretty bad) Spade still has a few classic moments of comedic brilliance, my favorite being when he goes into a litany naming various types of fireworks. THE NOT-SO-GOOD:...Basically this movie is full of gross-out comedy. I find it [...]

Head Over Heels

February 2, 2001
The makers of “Head Over Heels” attempt to revive screwball and slapstick comedy, failing to understand that you need actors gifted with a sense of comic timing to bring those genres back to life. And you must have material that’s not tired, coarse or cheap. The film has two plots, one about [...]

Screwed

May 12, 2000
I forget, isn’t a comedy supposed to be funny? What little attempt there is at humor in this screenplay, if you could call it that, relies on either crude, mean-spirited, crude, sexually suggestive, crude, imbecilic, or just plain uncouth material. Oh, and did I mention that it’s crude? I [...]
