January 20, 2015

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Madea is always a hilarious lady who has her own way of doing things. While watching a police chase on TV, Madea talks to the TV, telling those youngsters not to run and have respect for the "PO-PO." But when there is a special button on her remote that tells her not to push it, she does it anyway. [...]

The Single Moms Club

Tyler Perry always bring everyday issues of the world to the big screen. In this movie the topic is being a single parent. There are many single parents out there that will be able to relate to this film. It brings together five women from different backgrounds to work on a project for the school [...]

A Madea Christmas

Tyler Perry has brought Madea to life once again, this time it is for Christmas. Madea accompanies Eileen to her daughter Lacey's farm for Christmas.

Tyler Perrys Temptation

Tyler Perry's script and story manages to be entertaining but the content in the sex and drug categories unfortunately put it over the top and outside of Dove's acceptability level for family viewing. The film opens with a marriage counselor named Judith (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) talking to a woman [...]

There are a couple of "Go to H***" comments and we don't award our Dove Seal to movies which contain this curse. The sex content also registers a three, [...]

Madeas Big Happy Family, Tyler Perrys

I get the good intentions Tyler Perry has with this film. Madea's niece, Shirley, learns she has a serious health issue and does everything within her power to bring her family together for dinner. The problem is the disrespect that is shown to her and between her daughters and their husbands who [...]

For Colored Girls

This film targets African American women and indeed the audience I screened the film with was made up of primarily women. It is a story that they will best relate to. There are several subplots which make up the whole of the film. In one story Whoopi Goldberg plays a religious fanatic who yells, [...]

Why Did I Get Married Too, Tyler Perrys

Tyler Perry usually just misses being awarded our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for his various movies, usually because the sex content hits a rating of three which prevents us from awarding our Dove Seal to his film. It happens again with this one but in this case the language hits a three due to [...]
