The Hate U Give

The Hate U Give is an inspirational film for its time. Though it felt long to sit through, it was important to watch, and the superb acting by everyone made up for what it lacked in editing. The content was exceptionally balanced, given its heated and sometimes controversial subject matter. The [...]

Girls Trip

The Dove Team opted not to review this movie. Our report is therefore limited to the business information (title, rating, distributor, producer, director, actors, etc), synopsis, and the content [...]

When the Bough Breaks

"When the Bough Breaks" is a suspenseful, tension-filled picture. The plot focuses on a couple, John and Laura Taylor (Morris Chestnut and Regina Hall), who are childless and want to become parents. Laura has suffered through three miscarriages, so she and John find a willing surrogate, a young [...]

Barbershop: The Next Cut

About Last Night

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 [...]

Think Like a Man

While funny at times, this film was an example of just how low our standards have become when selecting a companion. Men can be shallow and so can women but we are shown just how devious each sex can be when they attempt to get what they want. The premise of this movie is that four women all read [...]

Scary Movie 4

If you like immature, inane, absurd humor then "Scary Movie 4" is for you. Or, if you enjoyed Scary Movie 1,2, and/or 3, then you most likely will enjoy this 4th episode of toilet humor that pokes fun at many of the most recent "scary" films like "Saw", "Million Dollar Baby", "The Grudge", "War of [...]

The Honeymooners

I am pleasantly surprised that Cedric the Entertainer kept the foul language somewhat under control. He didn't use any profanities and didn't use the f-word. How delightful he was as Ralph Kramden. At times he even sounded like Jackie Gleason. This film was much better than I thought it would be. [...]

Kings Ransom

I was hoping someone would pay a king’s ransom and free me from this terrible film. It was simply ninety-five minutes of sexual content and miserable humor (if you could call it that). Honestly, I didn’t expect this movie to be worthy of awards, but I was hoping for a few laughs, especially [...]

Scary Movie 2

THE GOOD: ... There’s nothing good or funny about this movie. THE NOT-SO-GOOD: ... I enjoy a good spoof as much as the next person but this movie is full of offensive, raunchy material, it would take me the whole column to list it all. Let me simply say that this movie goes way beyond simply [...]
