Monsters at Work

Dove Approved for All Ages

The Scriptures say there is "no fear in love," and for those following Disney's Monsters franchise, there is no fear in its streaming-series spinoff, Monsters at Work. Though we're 20 years down the road since Monsters, Inc. came out in 2001, the COVID-delayed spinoff is set on the day after the [...]

Monsters University

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a delightful imaginative movie for the entire family. The animation is bursting with vivid colors and is eye candy for the audience. The story is a "prequel" which takes place before "Monsters Inc." Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) meets Sully (John Goodman) and both hope to win a [...]

Tooth Fairy

May 3, 2010

Dove Approved for All Ages

Dwayne Johnson really hit a right note when he made "The Game Plan" in 2007. It won the Crystal Dove Award for "Best Comedy of 2007." And it did well at the box office. In the beginning, the idea of the tooth fairly seems a bit silly. But soon enough the laughs come and the movie plays to the [...]

City Slickers – Edited

January 19, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I recall the original version of "City Slickers," and it was refreshing to watch this edited version and not have to listen to any of the potty mouth in the 1991 production, along with gross bathroom humor which was also present in the unedited version. Billy Crystal not only did a good acting job, [...]

Analyze That

This sequel is even more vulgar than the original, "Analyze This" (1999). Much of the humor is cruel and demeaning and draws little laughter from viewers. The plot of "Analyze That" is entertaining, but it cannot be Dove approved because of the sexual content, violence and continuous bad [...]

Monsters, Inc. 3D

September 17, 2002

Dove Approved for All Ages

The action is non-stop in this fast-paced, hilarious and touching story. "Monsters, Inc." is refreshingly free of any suggestive elements, foul language or crude humor. There are some comical, scary scenes and it’s filled with threatening chases, wild rides on a conveyor belt, some struggles and [...]

Americas Sweethearts

Director Joe Roth has created a unique comedy romance that spoofs the world of Hollywood romance with biting sarcasm and witty humor. This hilarious script written by Crystal gives the public a glimpse into the world of a movie press junket and successfully uses the talents of Roberts, Zeta-Jones [...]
