The Foreigner

The Foreigner is a gritty and realistic tale of power and corruption with Jackie Chan in a dramatic role unlike any we've seen from him before. Behind his fast-as-lightning martial arts, though, is a grim and empty man with tears rolling down his cheeks. These tears poignantly show us the inner [...]

No Escape

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

The November Man

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

I Dont Know How She Does It

This is another one of those films in which a woman, in this case Sarah Jessica Parker as Kate Reddy, juggles her home life, children and a stressful job. She plays a Boston investment manager who has to do extensive traveling. To her credit, she makes the comment that her out-of-work architect [...]

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Make no mistake about it. This movie has a lot of battle scenes and sword fights in it in addition to fire-breathing creatures. Yet as it briskly moves ahead on the big screen there is a lot to like and enjoy. The film features some of the best special effects, i.e. CGI work, I have seen in a film. [...]

Remember Me

"Remember Me" features some powerful storytelling as it focuses on real life events and tragedies which many people face every day. Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) plays a young man who is about to turn twenty two years old, and he's already experienced plenty of tragedy and hardship as his [...]

Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! Mamma Mia! Where do I start? The entire premise of the film is not family-friendly. First of all you have Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) born out of wedlock that is now grown up, about to be married, and wants to find her dad so he can give her away. But according to her mother, Donna' [...]

The Matador – Filtered

July 4, 2006
This film was well made-it had wonderful acting and kept you interested with an easy-to-follow plot and it was not predictable. However, because of the nature of the film it is not approved. The film had many killings, the main character was a hit man, with no remorse; in fact at one point in the [...]

Laws Of Attraction

In this cute but forgettable film, divorce is not glamorized or trivialized. It is presented as the only thing left when a husband and wife are unwilling to do all that they can to make a marriage work. There is quite a bit of bad language, including an s-word and several occurrences of profanity, [...]

Die Another Day – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This reviewer goes back to enjoying the original Bond movie, "Dr. No", in a Chicago suburb drive-in theatre. I well remember looking at my husband, and both of us saying almost simultaneously, "Oh my gosh, I can't believe how good this movie is!". The Bond movies have morphed over four decades from [...]
