The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

March 6, 2015
"The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" hits on important themes in an entertaining way. One of the themes is a play on the old adage, "There's no time like the present." The words are reversed by a character into, "There is no present like time." And for the many senior citizens who abide in The [...]

Movie 43

January 25, 2013
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Hachi: A Dogs Tale

March 9, 2010

Dove Approved for All Ages

Who doesn't fall in love with a cute and cuddly puppy? Especially one that is all alone at a train station. Our story starts out with a young boy giving a speech to his class about his hero.

Brooklyns Finest

Amelia

October 23, 2009
"Amelia" is a near-miss in being awarded our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. The story is historically correct with possibly just a few imagined scenes which fall into the realm of possibility. The story of the first woman pilot to successfully fly the Atlantic and the mystery concerning her fate [...]

Nights in Rodanthe

September 26, 2008
I find it rather ironic that there are two movies opening this weekend which center around a wife's decision to leave her husband or stay and fight for their marriage. This film takes the point of view that romance is worth setting everything else aside and you are encouraged to follow your dreams. [...]

The Hoax

April 20, 2007
This film is based on real facts about a writer during the 70's who wrote anything but a real-life biography of Billionaire Howard Hughes. The audience will be intrigued as they witness the lengths that Clifford Irving went to in order to get a story of this magnitude written and published. Filled [...]

Bee Season

November 11, 2005
It's unfortunate that "Bee Season" cannot be approved due to language because the overarching theme of the movie is one worthy of discussion. It's a deeply moving story about a Jewish family and their individual pursuits of a one-on-one relationship with God. Be prepared! This is by no means a [...]

Shall We Dance

October 15, 2004
I wish we could award this film the Dove Seal because I really liked it because of the music and dancing. The story was cute, well written and the cast did a marvelous job. Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez on the dance floor was not Fred and Ginger, but they did a wonderful job and it was [...]

Dr. T And The Women

October 13, 2000
Quirky writer/director Robert Altman is best known for observant, multilayered films such as “Nashville” “M.A.S.H.” and “The Player.” Once again he has taken a location and a people and skewered them. This place is Dallas, Texas, and the people are the self-involved elite ladies who [...]
