Side Effects

Included with every prescription medicine is a list of side effects printed on an accompanying sheet. TV ads list some pretty alarming side effects of prescription drugs, while encouraging viewers to get their doctors to prescribe the "cure-all." Some side effects make you question whether or not [...]

Broken City

Although actors Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe chew up the scenery when they act together and play well off of each other the number of profanities pile up quickly in this film. They are uttered often and throughout the entire movie. Crowe plays the Mayor of New York City who is campaigning for [...]

No Reservations

There have been several movies in the past that had the same basic theme in which the unmarried relative becomes a guardian for a child or children, and they don't have a clue as to how to raise the child. This shows that if anyone is put in that situation he/she might make mistakes and it may not [...]

The Legend of Zorro

January 31, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"My family is my life" is Zorro's new slogan and he means it. Director Martin Campbell could have gone either way with this fun filled, action-packed saga. While he may have come close to pushing the limits with this film, he manages to reel himself in several times and presents the viewer with an [...]

Oceans Twelve – Edited

June 22, 2005

Dove Approved for All Ages

I loved the first one and I loved the second one just as much. This time the whole crew gets back together, not to get money for themselves but to pay Benedict back for all of the money that they stole from him the last time around. It's the whole crew back again. But this time one of Brad Pitt's [...]

Oceans Twelve

It was going to be quite a challenge to produce a movie just as good as or better than “Ocean’s 11”. With all the big stars cast again, plus the addition of Catherine Zeta Jones, it was quite possible. However, it just wasn’t to be. Ocean’s 12 doesn’t live up to the hype, and should [...]

The Terminal

Viktor shows good-natured acceptance of rules he doesn’t understand and an ability to provide for himself without stealing. When Frank makes it possible for Viktor to escape the terminal and disappear into Manhattan, the foreigner refuses to leave. Amelia’s life revolves around her affair with [...]

Intolerable Cruelty – Edited

March 16, 2004

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

There are some good laughs in this movie, because good comedy is real-life but exaggerated. The chemistry between the lead characters, Clooney and Zeta-Jones, lights up the screen from their first encounter. I call movies of this genre fluff pieces: good for mindless viewing and a few laughs. The [...]

Intolerable Cruelty

Intolerable Cruelty, which pokes fun at marriage a la Hollywood and the legal profession, is an adult comedy that will do well at the box office. Dove cannot award the Dove Family-Approved Seal to this film due to its offensive language and immoral [...]
