The Family Guide
To Movies And Entertainment
The mission of MOVIEGUIDE® is to redeem the values of the entertainment industry, according to biblical principles, by influencing industry executives and artists.
Founded by Dr. Ted Baehr, MOVIEGUIDE® reviews all movies from a Christian perspective and how movies affect children at different stages of cognitive development. We analyze movies using over 150 different criteria that cover the dramatic elements, the literary, the worldview, and the theological…and much more. We now have TV and radio shows broadcast in over 200 countries, a website filled with resources including movie reviews and articles, deep industry relationships, and our annual MOVIEGUIDE® Awards Gala.
When we began three decades ago, over 80% of movies were rated R: today that number is just 34%. Indeed, in 1985, only 6% of the movies were aimed at families; by 2008, that number had reached almost 40%, not to mention a great increase in Christian content in movies. This is the result of informing and educating the public about the influence of the entertainment media and about how to train their families to become media-wise. It's also a result of our work in Hollywood, helping industry leaders see the financial and cultural benefits of serving family audiences.
Rod and Sherri Martin are honored to serve on MOVIEGUIDE®'s board of directors and to support its important work.
