actor: Rene Russo

Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started features veteran actors Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones, who share a good on-screen chemistry to bring us some hilarious moments. Watching the two compete at golf and even ping pong results in some comedic incidents and dialog. They have an interest in the same woman, Suzie, [...]

The Intern

"The Intern" features two really solid performances from Anne Hathaway, as Jules Ostin, and Robert De Niro, as her senior citizen intern, Ben Whittaker. Jules is the founder of an online fashion website, and she works a lot of hours. In fact, she barely sees her stay-at-home husband, Matt, who is [...]


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

Yours, Mine and Ours (2005)

February 28, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Dennis Quaid and Rene Russo team up in one of the funniest family comedies of the year. Just imagine, not only do you have 8 kids from a previous marriage, but the woman you fall in love with has 10 kids of her own. Wow! Many of you will remember this heartwarming tale from the original starring [...]

Two for the Money

January 17, 2006
I don't know why good actors even want to be in films like this. The entire film is depressing and negative. It deals with greed, one of man's worst attributes. Walter Abrams plays off of other people's gambling addiction and doesn't care who he hurts along the way. In one scene Walter, who is in [...]

Two for the Money – Filtered

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey give good performances in "Two for the Money." This typical Hollywood film of today takes two large actors and places them into a world that would, under any other circumstance, be entirely boring. In the illegal world of sports betting, there exists an entirely [...]

Outbreak – Edited

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is an exciting suspensful film along the lines of "The Andromeda Strain." In this one though, the governement is the bad guy, willing to sacrIfice innocent civilians to cover up their blundering mistakes. Hoffman plays a caring but angry man that works constantly which has placed his [...]

Big Trouble

Aside from a prayerful Hispanic housemaid who beats off the advances of her sleazy, adulterous boss and a hippie, “Jesus look-alike” who quotes Genesis, there are few redeeming elements in this film. Three different characters show no qualms about adultery. The dialogue is filled with sexually [...]

Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

February 13, 2001

Dove Approved for All Ages

Armed with puns, sight gags and farcical names (Karen Sympathy, Cappy Von Trapment, Minnie Mogul), “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle” takes us back to a time when writers found humor in things other than flatulence. Alas, I’m on the antlers of a dilemma. I really wanted to like this [...]
