Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" is hilarious fun! There are several laugh-out-loud moments in the movie, which is as good as the original and brings this trilogy to an appropriately humorous conclusion. The magic is about to be lost and once Larry (Ben Stiller) learns why, he is off to [...]

Old Dogs

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The old dogs still have it. Both Robin Williams and John Travolta are funny in this new Disney film, and they mesh well playing long time friends, Dan and Charlie. They have moved up in the ranks in marketing at their jobs and are near closing a sweet deal with a Japanese firm. Then Dan (Williams) [...]

Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie includes some slaps as a few characters slap each other, as well as slapstick humor. But other than some good guys fighting some bad guys (with the likes of General Custer and Napoleon being involved) the violence isn't very strong in this picture and what there is of it is pretty [...]

August Rush

March 11, 2008
This story left just about everyone who screened it with a lump in our throats. It is an emotional ride which leads to a fantastic conclusion. If the viewer followed the journey from beginning to end, he/she wouldn't be disappointed with how it is wrapped up. The premise of the story is the birth [...]

When a couple decides to marry, sometimes they don't really understand the ups and downs in that relationship. "License to Wed" takes the audience into the outlandish premarital class that Ben and Sadie endure. The class, created by Reverend Frank, challenges the couple to see if they are right for [...]

Man of the Year

Disappointing, not very funny, crude, good premise, poor sound mix, hard to hear dialog at times, interesting observations about the political landscape. These are some of the things I can impart about "Man of the Year". Tom Dobbs describes aspects of the political landscape that I believe many [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This movie is laugh-out-loud funny in spots. The audience I saw it with roared with laughter several times. This is one of those films that is funnier than it looks in the trailer. I expected it to be mediocre but was pleasantly surprised. An example is when a friend of Bob's daughter Cassie, a [...]

The Night Listener

I never thought that I would use the words "Robin Williams" and "worst movie" in the same sentence, but here goes. "The Night Listener" starring Robin Williams is the worst movie I have seen in a very long time. I normally am a big Robin Williams fan. I find him very funny and talented. [...]
