I Can Only Imagine

March 16, 2018

Dove Approved for All Ages

The heart behind the hit song I Can Only Imagine takes viewers behind the curtain, into the personal life of singer/songwriter Bart Millard (a role magnificently performed by J. Michael Finley). Deeply moving, and not to be missed, I Can Only Imagine is a story of tragedy and triumph; a living [...]

Spanglish

December 17, 2004
While I found this film entertaining and heartwarming, I cannot recommend it. The language is unnecessary as is the on screen sex scene. What can be taken away is that faithfulness is important in relationships as is an open dialog between spouses. The main characters never seem to connect on [...]

Animal

June 1, 2001
Schneider had a dual role as the co-writer and star of the film so his character is a sample of his creative writing ability that has its funny moments. Schneider learned well from his SNL days and sometimes his comedic timing works well with his silly expressions. But the amount of crude humor [...]

Music Of The Heart

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Yes, it could justly be called MRS. Holland’s Opus, due to its similarities to the Richard Dreyfuss vehicle, but the film, nonetheless, is most entertaining. Its strength lies in Ms. Streep’s performance and several positive messages it conveys, including examples of compassion and [...]

Hanging Up

February 18, 2000
When not squirming in my seat from the pretentious and often, supercilious attempts at humor (while cooking a turkey dinner, the sisters, dressed in Donna Karan, begin laughing hysterically after a baking flour fight breaks out), I questioned, “Is this really what women had in mind when they [...]
