Dove Review

The little girl who lives with her grandpa in this video demonstrates a lot of responsibility. For example, she makes sure that Tiny is bathed, and she also tries to teach him good manners. The dog is very obedient and loves his family. This production tries to show kids that no matter how small or young, you are something special – and you are important. The little animals ask, “What could I possibly do?” There is a song about taking the “t” off the word “can’t.” A couple of references: the bad weasels pray to the heavens for food, and then it comes to them from the sky. And, even though the bad guys are “bad,” one says, “bless you” whenever the other one sneezes.

Content Description

Faith: None
Integrity: None
Sex: None
Language: "The little suckers."
Violence: The bad guy says it is, “easier to pop ‘em with a gun than chase the little suckers through the forest.” The bad guy does a lot of shoving his partner around. The bad guy throws a snowball at the owl trying to hurt him, and he later points his gun at the owl trying to kill him. When being chased by the bad guy, the owl and moose trick him into driving over a cliff (he only catches a cold after falling into the icy water). Bad guy uses the mouse as “dinner bait” for the owl (not knowing he doesn’t eat other animals).

Other: The bad guy breaks a mirror and his partner says they will have seven years of bad luck. The bad guy says, “If he was any better at being bad the devil would be out of a job.” The bad weasels pray to the heavens for food, and then it comes to them from the sky.
