Dove Review

As far as we’re concerned from a family perspective, this film places the proverbial cart before the horse. A guy named Adam (Ashton Kutcher) and a girl named Emma (Natalie Portman) decide to base a relationship entirely on sex and it is only later that they actually experience a first date and then fall in love. Adam is the first one to realize that he enjoys Emma’s company a lot. She’s quite a woman, a doctor who is beautiful and smart. She notices little things about him too. He is happy all the time and knows how to compliment her.

The movie contains a few laughs but really not that many. It is based primarily on the topic of sex as its main focus and there are a lot of scenes of the couple getting ready to have sex, having sex or just finishing the act. There are many frank sexual comments and innuendos as well and a scene of two women who kiss. There is also brief rear male nudity and partial rear female nudity. Due to the heavy content we cannot award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
