Cars 3

Dove Approved for All Ages

It’s been a while since I heard a theater crowd applaud at the end of the movie. It wasn’t a passionate, emotional applause, but definitely a joyful, grateful appreciation for a positively delightful evening out with the kids. This third installment in the Cars franchise takes us back to the [...]
