Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont

October 1, 2007
This film in my opinion seemed like something that you would watch on PBS. This movie has enjoyable moments and it reminded me of my grandma and her taste in films. This movie is not only inappropriate for children, but it really isn’t something that a child would enjoy. I would say this movie [...]

Back to the Secret Garden

Dove Approved for All Ages

A great little sequel to a popular children's film/book. It has great positive outlooks on life, and shows the power and importance of friendship. Hopefully this will find it's way to video soon so that it can reach a larger population. Well done, especially in the [...]

Dinosaur

January 30, 2001

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Dinosaur" gets a little violent at times, with the fire and destruction of the meteor shower and with dinosaurs fighting and sometimes eating each other. I think some of these scenes would be a little frightening for young children. This violence is the only reason for the PG rating that I could [...]

Frankie and Hazel

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Frankie and Hazel" is a nice family picture, aimed mostly at preteen girls. Love, supportive friendship, teamwork and family respect take center focus in this gentle fairy [...]

101 Dalmatians (Live Action) 1996

December 17, 1996

Dove Approved for All Ages

Disney's live action recreation of its own 1961 animated classic. The original is paced just a wee bit slower, giving it a gentler quality than most members of Generation X are used to, but the live action version is nearly as appealing. A charming fantasy about two people meeting, because their [...]
