Dove Review

I don’t even know where to begin to describe this film. I will say that IN NO WAY should your children be allowed to watch this movie. If you allow them to, they will be exposed to some extreme images.

It is raunchy and vulgar to the extreme. The material in this film is strongly graphic and over the top in almost every way imaginable. I have a feeling that the director tried to make this movie to push the limits of taste and humor. He achieved that goal. I actually feel less intelligent for having viewed it. It took two hours of my life that can never be replaced. I’m surprised it received an “R” rating and not an “NC – 17” rating, which I feel would be more appropriate.

If crude, vulgar, and brainless comedies are your thing, than this movie is for you. In my opinion, you have better things to do and better movies to watch with your time. We cannot award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this film.

Content Description

Violence: A car crashes into a chainlink fence (no one is hurt); a character punches another player during a hockey match; some teenage boys repeatedly fire paint guns at Zack's crotch while he's dressed in a costume designed for such abuse.

Nudity: Male and female full nudity seen several times.
Other: This film is outrageous, plain and simple with disrespectful attitudes.
