When Steven Soderbergh, the 2000 Oscar winner for “Traffic;” director of “Erin Brockovich” and “Sex, Lies, and Videotapes” among other blockbusters, announced his retirement from filmmaking in 2013, we did not expect to see him back so soon. However, he’s found a way to be true to his [...]

Don’t Be Araid of the Dark

August 26, 2011
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 [...]

May 15, 2008

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This follow-up to "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is a darker, more intense version of "The Chronicles of Narnia." There is a bit more evil to contend with in this one. As a dwarf in the film says: "You might find Narnia a more savage place then you remember." The wicked King Miraz (Sergio [...]

How to Eat Fried Worms

August 25, 2006

Dove Approved for All Ages

This film does have its gross "Fear Factor" moments, but the story overall is pretty much good fun and the kids in this movie act much as kids do in real life. New-kid-at-school Billy is bullied by Joe, who as a prank puts some worms in Billy's thermos and all the kids laugh at lunchtime. When [...]

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe

December 9, 2005

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

"Aslan is on the move!" These prophetic words declare the end of 100 years of winter and the beginning of spring in the mystical land of Narnia. But more than that, the words represent the coming of a savior in the form of a lion who will set the inhabitants of Narnia free from the clutches of the [...]

Everlasting Piece, An

December 25, 2000
Funny and often poignant, this story of two blue-collar blokes gives us a fully dimensional view of life and hopes in a country torn by religious and political strife. Unfortunately, the language is also blue collar. While religious dogma is a part of their lives, the commands of God’s Word seem [...]

My Dog Skip

January 12, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Set in WWII-era Mississippi, the film has a Norman Rockwell ambiance, gentle enough for little ones, but also involving enough for older kids and their parents. Funny, yet, poignant, My Dog Skip reminds us of what a great gift man’s best friend really is. Tenaciously loyal, indomitably forgiving, [...]
