Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This animated version of Mark Twain's classic tale about Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn features many musical numbers and colorful characters. The story is filled with the boy's imagination of being Robin Hood and a pirate—plus Tom's love for the lovely Becky. It's important to [...]

Hidden Figures

March 28, 2017

Dove Approved for All Ages

Hidden Figures was originally not awarded the Dove Family Seal of Approval because the character played by Kevin Costner utters the name of Jesus one time in vain. I understand that such a curse is a breach of an important commandment and I bristle a bit inside when I hear people do it throughout [...]

Spider-Man 3

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Spider-Man 2" has been called the greatest comic book movie ever made by many film critics and comic book aficionados. "Spider-Man 3" strongly makes a case to take that title. The film is virtually a non-stop ride into great action sequences, character development, and humor; plus, the film [...]

Marie Antoinette

This film has been criticized for having more style than substance. Although there is some truth to the statement, at the same time there are at least some issues of substance in the film, including Marie Antoinette's patience in waiting for her apparently-bi-sexual husband to make love to her so [...]

Elizabethtown – Filtered

February 7, 2006
"Elizabethtown," overall, has some great moments. It has a captivating storyline with fantastic lead characters. In my opinion, this is one of Kirsten Dunst’s better performances. But alas, Hollywood strikes again and it is implied the two main characters have sex and then the girl is cheered by [...]

Elizabethtown

If you like relationship movies with thoughtful and witty dialog, this movie is for you. Writer and Director Cameron Crowe has once again given us deeply lovable and well-developed characters. By the end of the film, I felt as though I knew these people and would miss them after leaving the [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Spider-Man 2" has been called the best super hero movie ever made. Roger Ebert said that and many film critics and reviewers, including myself, agree. This film has it all-a terrific story, stellar performances from the cast, great special effects and music and a few surprises along the way. [...]

Jumanji – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Robin Williams is a pleasure to watch in this film. There is no offensive language in this edited version. They still show the stampedes of animals, the hunter shooting at some of the characters asnd it might be scary for smaller children. But this movie makes me laugh out loud at [...]
