Are We Done Yet?

April 3, 2007

Dove Approved for All Ages

I didn't see the first film, "Are We There Yet?" but this one stands on its own even if the viewer hasn't seen the earlier movie. There is a lot to like in this film. Ice Cube does a nice job in portraying Nick, a man who is under stress, and a bit edgy, yet likable. When his wife learns she is [...]

Big Mommas House 2

January 27, 2006
Martin Lawrence reprises his role as Big Momma in order to save the world. Unfortunately, this film has so much bad language that a great deal of the humor was overshadowed by the dialogue. While funny at times, most of the situations had already been covered in the first installment. This leaves [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

This film was much better than I thought it was going to be. Nick really dislikes kids, but he really likes Kevin and Lindsey's mom.

I don't really know where to start in reviewing this film. The entire premise is about a womanizing man who tries to have sex with any girl he can. He has no regard for them really, he just wants to satisfy his lust-filled needs. It is depressing to watch as Alfie goes from one woman to the next, [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This story is based on true events. The investigators perform studies using their electronic equipment, and some of them accept the findings but one remains skeptical. At no time do any of the characters consider, or even mention, prayer to help them with this problem. They evidently believe they [...]

Big Mommas House

June 2, 2000
This is one funny movie as the new Big Momma proves she "got game" by beating a bunch of boys at basketball, teaching the local karate instructor moves he didn't even know, and finally catching the escaped convict. Martin Lawrence does a great job in this Nutty Professor-like role. Alas, the [...]

Boiler Room

February 18, 2000
Similar to the high-powered stock market shenanigans of “Wall Street,” it is about a youth who sells his soul to become what society regards as successful – being rich! It is also about redemption, as our protagonist realizes prestige built on the destruction of others is too high a price. [...]
