Dove Review

This romantic comedy is on the light side, with nothing very serious or earth-changing happening. It is basically about some hook-ups and break-ups as it shares several vignettes. No one story or couple is focused on for long and the movie moves on to another couple. It is a fast paced movie for sure. It is targeted toward the texting generation of today, and it does include some big names in the business, including Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner and Anne Hathaway to name just a few.

Unfortunately, it includes some frank sexual comments and a woman who has a job as a phone sex worker, as well as including scenes of sex between unmarried couples (though none are explicit) so we therefore cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie.
