What does Dove-approved mean?
The Dove Foundation promotes family-friendly entertainment, basing its standards and criteria on Judeo/Christian values and the wholesomeness of a film. To serve movie audiences, the foundation created the Dove Family Approved Seal and a rating system from one to five doves to help identify qualifying films. The foundation also publishes a synopsis and critical review of approved films, and many movie studios and production companies, including BMG, now include the Dove Family Approved Seal when marketing their DVDs.
