A WONDERFUL, ENTERTAINING FAMILY MOVIE FILLED WITH COMEDY AND CHARM

Dove Review:
Dancer_and_the_dame jpgBilly Gardell portrays police officer Dancer, who at the moment is a file clerk at the station after being demoted. His demotion was caused by what the department thought was a lack in judgment against a local businessman. Still believing he was right, Dancer tries to investigate a young man who was badly beaten up. But that is not his only challenge. He also gets a new partner, Princess, a well-trained K-9 officer who is also facing some problems. Together the two need to find the truth.

As the duo get accustomed to each other, they find out more information that will solve the mystery and the truth of what is going on. Dancer and Princess become the right combination the force needs to investigate the crimes, and along the way they help each other get back on track in life.

This is a wonderful, entertaining family movie filled with comedy and charm. We are proud to award “Dancer and the Dame” the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. – www.dove.org

SAN ANDREAS
Movie Trailer: https://youtu.be/23VflsU3kZE
PG13VL – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILY VIEWING

Synopsis:
San_Andreas_posterA seemingly ideal day turns disastrous when California’s notorious San Andreas fault triggers a devastating, magnitude 9 earthquake, the largest in recorded history. As the Earth cracks open and buildings start to crumble, Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson), an LAFD search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, must navigate the destruction from Los Angeles to San Francisco to bring his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) and their only daughter (Alexandra Daddario) to safety.

Dove Review:
“San Andreas” does a good job tugging at the audience’s emotions. In the opening sequence, a girl is driving next to a mountain when huge boulders begin to fall, knocking her car off the road and over a cliff, and leaving her car hanging from a tree. LA rescue chopper pilot Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson) and his team descend down the cliff to rescue her. Gaines ropes down, learns the girl’s name is Natalie, and comforts her while rescuing her from the car dangling high above the ground.

That sequence is fairly tame compared to what comes after. A series of earthquakes of great magnitude rip first through Nevada and then California. The audience roots for the main characters to survive as they navigate through life-threatening situations, including crashing buildings and parking lots, falling debris, a tsunami, and being trapped underwater.

Gaines had recently received divorce papers from his wife Emma (Carla Gugino), who has just invited her boyfriend Daniel to move in with her. The plan to take Gaines’ daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) to college and visit with her ends when Gaines gets an emergency call for help.

The audience later learns why Gaines and Emma separated: his inability to talk about the death of their other daughter while rafting with her father. Now Blake is in danger when the earthquake strikes, particularly when she is trapped in a car and Daniel abandons her. British brothers Ben and Ollie, who Blake had just met, come to her rescue, with the struggle to survive bonding the three until Blake can find her mother and father, who have reunited to search for her.

Heart-tugging moments encourage the audience to invest their emotions in the story, especially when Blake faces a life-threatening event with only Gaines able to save her and thus prevent the loss of his second daughter. The audience roots for the family to survive. However, despite the amazing special effects surrounding the earthquakes and the tsunami, the film features strong language that prevents us from awarding the movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.  – www.dove.org
