Father Figures

Father Figuresis one of those movies that is way over the top in some ways and is very funny in certain scenes for that very reason. In the beginning of the movie, a doctor is checking a man's prostate and makes the comment, "Good news. I found your keys!" You immediately know this one will be [...]

Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

"Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" delivers what most fans of the old TV series and the modern movies would expect: a few masks hiding true identities, chase scenes (featuring both running humans and car chases), a character who is not clearly good or evil, and instead of a self-destructing audio [...]

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films.

I was impressed with the emotional qualities of the film and how the action played off of the relationships. While very [...]

American Tragedy

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

“American Tragedy” portrays high-priced, indulgent, win-at-all-costs attorneys bent on saving their client, no matter the truth. The script is perceptive and wonderfully acted by Rhames (Johnnie Cochran), Silver (Bob Shapiro) and Plummer (F. Lee Bailey). This miniseries gives the viewer an [...]

Mission Impossible 2

May 24, 2000
Aided by James Bond-styled action and stunts, beautiful locations, and a breathtaking leading lady, this is an exciting adventure. It is a typical action-packed summer movie where the good guys best the villains. Surprisingly lacking in objectionable material, however, we could not quite approve [...]
