The Emoji Movie

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

It takes all kinds of emojis to make the world go 'round. That is one lesson presented in this imaginative and pun-filled movie—that and the fact that one must take risks in order to find what one is truly made of. Gene the Emoji has to do this because he has not been selected to appear on a [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" brings to energetic life the book written by Judith Viorst upon which this movie is based. The film features stars Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner as Ben and Kelly Cooper, and young Ed Oxenbould as their son Alexander. Life is a [...]

Epic Movie

One family walked out of this movie at the screening I attended. I wouldn't have minded joining them. However, it's our job at Dove to inform the public of the content of films and I am sad to say that this film had a lot of unwholesome content. In fact, it would be impossible to use the word [...]

Date Movie

What do you get when you take the worst parts of every 'chick flick' made in the past 10 years? That's right, you get one of the worst date movies I've ever seen. Attention spans for the intended teen audience don't last too long so fortunately, this movie didn't either. I can only guess at the [...]

Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel have outdone themselves with the wonderfully funny script that they created for this film. There is no objectionable language in this picture and the only thing even remotely in bad taste is a "fake farting" scene. Aside from that, you will be amazed by the [...]

Robots – Filtered

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Robots" is great fun for the whole family with Robin Williams as the voice of one of the main animated robots. How can the viewer not be entertained with his zany way of expressing himself? A young robot, Rodney Copperbottom, goes to Robot City to fulfill his dream of being a great inventor when [...]

Cinderella Story, A – Edited

December 3, 2004

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a Cinderella story that most people nowadays can really relate to. And because it was set in a modern time and place, I really got drawn into it. All of the characters were perfect and they played their roles to a "T". Hilary was the innocent but hardworking step-daughter, Jennifer couldn't [...]

A Cinderella Story

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

As in all fairy tales, good wins over evil in stark black and white. Sam is so good while Fiona and her daughters are so bad that it’s hard to connect with any of them. Sam makes straight As, works long hours at the diner, does all of the cooking and cleaning at home, and still looks beautiful. [...]

Legally Blonde – Edited

September 1, 2003

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

I found myself grateful to be reviewing the edited version of this movie. Let me assure you that all the listed elements have been nuked out of this edited rendition. This young lady, Elle Woods, embodies the freshness, chutzpah, and healthy self-esteem people love to see in 20 something’s. She [...]

Legally Blonde

THE GOOD: ... This hilarious chick flick is one the guys will enjoy too because it delivers clever dialogue, funny parodies about the wealthy verses the intellectual, a modern day song and dance number (“bend and snap”) set in a beauty salon called an amazing soundtrack, an incredible wardrobe, [...]
