Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Pixels" is made for today's audience, with some nostalgia thrown in for the people of the '80s. The film features songs by Hall and Oates, Queen, and other well-known artists, as well as the popular arcade games of the '80s, including PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, and Centipede. Teenagers in the '80s and [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" takes good ol' Paul (Kevin James) to Vegas and, although feeling a bit lonely, he has barely a second to breathe! Bad guys at the hotel where he is staying plan to steal the priceless art that adorns its many walls. Paul has plenty of his own concerns, including losing a [...]

Grown Ups 2

July 12, 2013
When you hear that Adam Sandler is the writer of a movie you can be sure that you will get what you expect; a grossly over-the-top and tasteless film full of current and former SNL cast members. "Grown Ups 2" is a movie that will appeal to anyone but a grown up. The sight gags are frequent and [...]

Here Comes the Boom

October 12, 2012

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Here Comes the Boom is a little slow in building but quickens the pace by mid-film. The story centers around the idea that we can all do our part to help others succeed in their goals. While the film is filled with fighting scenes, the moral of the story is to persevere and not give up. Lofty [...]

Hotel Transylvania

September 28, 2012

Dove Approved for All Ages

"Hotel Transylvania" reminds me somewhat of Disney's "Monsters, Inc." It is an entertaining, animated film featuring many familiar horror characters including vampires, monsters, skeletons, werewolves, Frankenstein, and so on. However, these "scary" characters are actually quite lovable and funny. [...]

Zookeeper

July 8, 2011
This movie is a fantasy film for sure with the animals speaking at night and only to each other and to Griffin (Kevin James), the head zoopkeeper at Franklin Park Zoo in New England. The animals all love him because they know he really cares about them. The film is almost equally divided between [...]

The Dilemma

January 14, 2011
I had high hopes for this film after screening it for the first several minutes. There was little language in it and it seemed to be a buddy movie with some laughs in it. Then, it changed direction, suddenly, like a locomotive. The next thing I knew I discovered that it is very disjointed with [...]

Grown Ups

June 25, 2010
The joke in this movie is that the grown-ups, namely the characters played by Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Chris Rock, are really big kids who act like juveniles when they get around each other. They like to ogle women, make jokes, hit each other and sometimes act on the gross side. [...]

Paul Blart: Mall Cop

January 16, 2009
Kevin James is funny as Paul Blart, the mall cop who takes his job very seriously. He is courteous and helpful but has no problem in flagging down a senior citizen who is going a bit too fast in the mall in his motorized wheelchair. He also tries to look "sexy" when he sends a video to a dating [...]

I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

July 20, 2007
This movie has something in it to offend just about everybody. I really went into it hoping to enjoy the inside jokes about the farce Larry and Chuck were attempting to pull off. But it has strong language, nudity, sexual innuendos throughout, deceit as a continuing theme of the plot, a comment [...]
