> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

THE NATION IS GRIEVING

TODAY AND RESIDENTS OF

DALLAS ARE IN SHOCK AFTER

A DEVASTATING NIGHT OF

VIOLENCE THERE.

AT LEAST FIVE POLICE

OFFICERS ARE DEAD, AND

OTHERS CRITICALLY INJURED

AFTER SHOOTERS DISRUPTED A

PEACEFUL PROTEST WITH A

STUNNING ASSAULT.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IT BEGAN AS

A PEACEFUL PROTEST AGAINST

THE TWO RECENT FATAL

POLICE SHOOTINGS OF BLACK

MEN.

THEN JUST BEFORE 9 p.m.,

SNIPERS OPENED FIRE ON

POLICE.

THEY'RE SHOOTING!

Reporter: THE GUNFIRE

CAME FROM TWO DOWNTOWN

DALLAS PARKING GARAGES.

11 POLICE OFFICERS WERE

SHOT, FIVE WERE KILLED.

IT IS A HEARTBREAKING

MORNING.

TO SAY THAT OUR POLICE

OFFICERS PUT THEIR LIFE ON

THE LINE EVERY DAY IS NO

HIGHIGHPERBALI, IT IS A

REALITY.

Reporter: FOUR

SUSPECTS WERE TAKEN INTO

CUSTODY.

BOTH INCIDENTS WERE

CAPTURED ON CELL PHONES,

AND THE MINNESOTA INCIDENT

WAS LIVE-STREAMED ON

Facebook.

WE AS A CITY, WE AS A

COUNTRY, MUST COME

TOGETHER AND LOCK ARMS AND

HEAL THE WOUNDS THAT WE

ALL FEEL FROM TIME TO

TIME.

WORDS MATTER.

LEADERSHIP MATTERS AT THIS

TIME.

Reporter: IN POLAND

FOR A NATO SUMMIT,

PRESIDENT OBAMA COMMENTING

ON THE SHOOTINGS, SAYING

THE NATION GRIEVES WITH

DALLAS.

President Obama: I

WOULD ASK ALL AMERICANS TO

SAY A PRAYER FOR THESE

OFFICERS AND THEIR

FAMILIES, TO KEEP THEM IN

YOUR THOUGHTS.

AND AS A NATION, LET'S

REMEMBER TO EXPRESS OUR

PROFOUND GRATITUDE TO OUR

MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE, NOT

JUST TODAY BUT EVERY DAY.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Caitlin: AN ONLINE

COLLEGE FUND FOR ALTON

STERLING'S FIVE CHILDREN

HAS REACHED MORE THAN

$500,000 IN DONATIONS.

HE WAS SHOT BY A POLICE

DURING A CONFRONTATION

EARLIER THIS WEEK,

SPARKING AN UPROAR OF

CONTROVERSY ACROSS THE

NATION.

ISA RAY STARTED A GO FUND

ME CAMPAIGN.

THE ORIGINAL GOAL WAS TO

RAISE $200,000, BUT DONORS

MORE THAN DOUBLED THAT

GOAL IN LESS THAN 24

HOURS.

THE U.S. JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT IS CURRENTLY

INVESTIGATING STERLING'S

DEATH FOR EVIDENCE OF FOUL

PLAY.

> THE STATE DEPARTMENT

IS REOPENING ITS

INVESTIGATION OF POSSIBLE

MISHANDLING OF CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION IN E-MAILS BY

HILLARY CLINTON AND SOME

OF HER TOP ASSISTANTS.

THE DEPARTMENT HAD

SUSPENDED ITS

INVESTIGATION IN APRIL TO

AVOID INTERFERING WITH THE

F.B.I.'S INQUIRY.

THE MOVE CAME AS

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

GRILLED JAMES COMEY ON

CAPITOL HILL ON THIEWFLTD.

THURSDAY.

THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT

THERE WAS NO

RECOMMENDATION TO PRESS

CHARGES AGAINST CLINTON

FOR USING PERSONAL E-MAILS

FOR GOVERNMENT BUSINESS

WHILE SHE WAS SECRETARY OF

STATE.

Reporter: CASE

CLOSED?

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT.

JAMES COMEY'S NEARLY FIVE

HOUR CONGRESSIONAL HEARING

SHOWS THAT QUESTIONS ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON'S E-MAIL

SCANDAL ARE FAR FROM

ANSWERED, AND THE

CONTROVERSY ITSELF IS FAR

FROM OVER.

I SPENT NINE AND A HALF

YEARS AS AN UNDERCOVER

OFFICER IN THE C.I.A.

I WAS THE GUY IN THE BACK

ALLEYS, COLLECTING

INTELLIGENCE AND GIVING IT

TO LAWMAKERS.

I'VE SEEN FRIENDS KILLED.

AND THIS IS ABOUT

PROTECTING INFORMATION,

THE MOST SENSITIVE

INFORMATION THE AMERICAN

GOVERNMENT HAS, AND I WISH

MY COLLEAGUES WOULD TAKE

THIS A LITTLE MORE

SERIOUSLY.

Reporter: COMEY

FOUGHT HARD TO DEFEND THE

F.B.I.'S DECISION OF NO

CRIMINAL CHARGES.

BUT LAWMAKERS POINTED OUT

CLINTON CLEARLY DIDN'T

TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT HER

ACTIONS WITH HER E-MAIL

SERVER ON MULTIPLE

OCCASIONS.

SECRETARY CLINTON SAID

I DID NOT E-MAIL ANY

CLASSIFIED MATERIAL TO

ANYONE ON MY E-MAIL.

WAS THAT TRUE?

THERE WAS CLASSIFIED

E-MAIL.

SECRETARY CLINTON SAID

SHE USED JUST ONE DEVICE.

WAS THAT TRUE?

SHE USED MULTIPLE

DEVICES DURING THE FOUR

YEARS OF HER TERM AS

SECRETARY OF STATE.

Reporter: NOW THE

QUESTION ARISES, DID

CLINTON EVER MAKE THESE

CLAIMS UNDER OATH.

WHETHER IT WAS A

PERSONAL ACCOUNT OR A

GOVERNMENT ACCOUNT, I DID

NOT SEND CLASSIFIED

MATERIAL AND I DID NOT

RECEIVE ANY MATERIAL THAT

WAS MARKED OR DESIGNATED

CLASSIFIED.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS

ARGUED SHE MAY NOT HAVE

SEEN THE CLASSIFIED

E-MAILS.

COMEY AGREED, SAYING

THAT CLINTON MAY NOT HAVE

BEEN SOPHISTICATED ENOUGH

TO UNDERSTAND THE MARKINGS

ON THE E-MAILS SHE SENT OR

RECEIVED.

THE HOUSE SAID THEY WILL

ASK FOR A NEW

INVESTIGATION AS TO

WHETHER OR NOT CLINTON

COMMITTED PERJURY, A

FELONY THAT COULD BE PUN

PUNISHED WITH PRISON TIME.

BUT MANY DOUBT THE

ADMINISTRATION WERE EVER

TRY TO CONVICT HER.

SHE IS NOT OUT OF THE

LEGAL WOODS CRIMINALLY,

BUT WE SHOULDN'T BE NAIVE

AS TO WHAT THIS JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT IS GOING TO DO

BECAUSE PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAS ALREADY SAID

MRS. CLINTON HAS DONE

NOTHING.

Reporter: NEXT

TUESDAY, ATTORNEY-GENERAL

LORETTA LYNCH WILL ALSO

TESTIFY BEFORE THE HOUSE

OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNMENT

REFORM COMMITTEE, WHERE

SHE WILL BE QUESTIONED

ABOUT THE E-MAIL

INVESTIGATION, AND LIKELY

HER CONTROVERSIAL MEETING

WITH BILL CLINTON AS WELL.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Caitlin: PRESIDENT

OBAMA IS CALLING ON

EUROPEAN LEADERS TO STAND

FIRM AGAINST TERRORISM.

RUSSIA AND OTHER

CHALLENGES, NOW THAT

BRITAIN HAS LEFT THE E.U.

THE PRESIDENT PUBLISHED

HIS REMARKS IN AN OP-ED

FOR THE FINANCIAL TIMES,

WRITING, "I BELIEVE THAT

OUR NATIONS MUST SUMMON

THE POLITICAL WILL AND

MAKE CONCRETE COMMITMENTS

TO MEET THESE URGENT

CHALLENGES.

I BELIEVE WE CAN, BUT ONLY

IF WE STAND UNITED AS TRUE

ALLIES AND PARTNERS."

HIS STATEMENT COMES AS HE

MEETS WITH E.U. LEADERS IN

POLAND.

> STATES ARE FIGHTING TO

STOP THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S

TRANSGENDER BATHROOM

DIRECTIVE.

13 STATES HAVE SUED THE

ADMINISTRATION OVER THE

POLICY THAT REQUIRES

PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO ALLOW

TRANSGENDER STUDENTS TO

USE THE BATHROOM OF THEIR

CHOICE.

REUTERS REPORTS THAT THE

COALITION IS NOW ASKING

THE FEDERAL COURTS TO KEEP

THE ADMINISTRATION FROM

ENFORCING THE POLICY WHILE

THE LAWSUIT PROCEEDS.

A JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

OFFICIAL TOLD THE STATES'

LAWYERS THAT THE

DEPARTMENT OPPOSES THEIR

MOTION.

> MULTIPLE LOCAL AND

COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE

DROPPING THE TRADITION OF

PRAYER.

THAT COMES AFTER

ANTI-RELIGION GROUPS TOLD

THE SCHOOLS IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

ONE SCHOOL BOARD COUNCIL

IN SOUTH CAROLINA IS

OPENING THEIR MEETINGS NOW

WITH A MOMENT OF SILENCE

INSTEAD OF PRAYING.

AMERICANS UNITED FOR

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE SAYS THE DECISION

EXPLOITS THE OPPORTUNITY

TO ADVANCE THE CHRISTIAN

FAITH.

MEANWHILE, A

SUPERINTENDENT IN ARKANSAS

HAS DROPPED PRAYER FROM

ALL FUTURE GRADUATION

CEREMONIES.

> AFTER 200 YEARS, THE

SITE MANY BELIEVE TO BE

JESUS' EMPTY TOMB IS

GETTING CRITICAL

RENOVATIONS.

A RARE AGREEMENT BETWEEN

MAJOR RELIGIONS LEADERS TO

TAKE CARE OF THE CHURCH OF

THE HOLY SEPLACUR, MADE IT

POSSIBLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY.

Chris: DEEP IN THE

HEART OF JERUSALEM'S

QUARTER LIES THE CHURCH OF

THE HOLY SEPLACUR.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PILGRIMS VISIT THE CHURCH

EACH YEAR.

THE ROMAN EMPEROR, CONS

CONSTANTEEN BUILT IT.

THE LAST REPAIR WORK

HAPPENED IN 1810, WHEN THE

MAUSOLEUM WAS REBUILT

FOLLOWING A FIRE.

ALSO IN 1927, THERE WAS

A KIND OF OF DAMAGE AROUND

IT.

Chris: NOTHING

HAPPENED THEN BECAUSE AS

TOUR GUY SAEED TOLD US,

THE GREEK ORTHODOX, ROMAN

CATHOLIC, AND ARAMEAN

ORTHODOX CHURCHES,

RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SITE'S

MANAGEMENT, COULDN'T AGREE

ON REPAIRS.

THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A

KIND OF COMPETITION

BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT

DENOMINATIONS.

WHO WOULD HAVE THE HONOR

TO PRAY MORE IN SUCH A

PLACE OR TO HAVE A BIGGER

PART.

Reporter: NOW THAT

LEADERS HAVE PUT THEIR

COMPETITION ASIDE,

PROFESSOR ANTONIO

MARAPULO, WILL LEAD THE

RESTORATION PROJECT.

WE WILL REMOVE THE

MARBLE SLABS, THE STONE

SLABS.

WE WILL INJECT GROUT.

THAT MEANS THAT WE DEVELOP

A UNIFIED STRUCTURE.

THAT ALL OF THE LAYERS

WILL BE BEHAVE

STRUCTURALLY AS ONE.

AND AFTER REPAIRING IT

WITH NEW MORTARS, WE WILL

RE-ADJUST THE SLABS WITH

TITITANIUM.

Chris: AND THE

RESTORATION TAKES IN THE

TINIEST DETAILS.

WE THOUGHT MAYBE WE

WILL CONTINUE WITH ANOTHER

METAL, SO WE HAVE A VERY

CLEAN SURFACE.

HERE YOU CAN TELL THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO

SURFACES.

Chris: THE THREE

DENOMINATIONS, AND

JORDAN'S KING ABDULLAH,

WILL PUT UP $3 MILLION FOR

THE WORK, WHICH SHOULD BE

COMPLETE BY 2017.

MAJOR REPAIRS WILL HAPPEN

AT NIGHT, SO VISITORS

AREN'T DISTURBED.

FOR THOSE WORKING ON THE

PROJECT, IT IS MORE THAN

JUST A JOB.

IT IS VERY EXCITING.

I'M A CHRISTIAN ORTHODOX,

AND I'M WORKING ON

MONUMENTS LIKE THIS, BUT

THIS IS VERY SPECIALIZED

WORK.

I DON'T BELIEVE I CAN GO

TO SOMETHING AS BIG AS

THIS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, CHURCH

OF THE HOLY SEPLACUR, IN

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY.

Caitlin: COMING UP,

MILES AWAY FROM

PICTURE-PERFECT BEACHES

COMES A SCENE YOU WON'T

SEE IN POSTCARDS.

SEE HOW GOD IS USING

MISSIONARIES TO BRING TRUE

BEAUTY FROM BROKENNESS.

Caitlin: IF YOU WANT

TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL,

HOW ABOUT A RELAXING

VACATION IN A TROPICAL

PARADISE.

THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

WOULD APPEAR TO FIT THE

BILL WITH WARM WEATHER AND

OCEAN BEACHES.

BUT LOOKS CAN BE

DECEIVING.

DAVID BRODY TAKES US TO

THE ISLAND OF ST. JOHN FOR

THIS EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT HOW

ONE CHURCH IS MINISTERING

ON THE OTHER SIGHT OF

PARADISE.

David: ADS AND

BROCHURES WANTS YOU TO SEE

PARADISE ABOUT A THOUSAND

MILES SOUTH OF FLORIDA.

ON THE SURFACE, THE U.S.

VIRGIN ISLANDS APPEAR

PERFECT.

BUT DIVE A LITTLE DEEPER,

AND YOU'LL FIND A MUCH

DIFFERENT PERSON.

VIDEO OF BROKEN DOWN

SCHOOLS DOESN'T FILL

HOTELS OR PACK BEACHES.

THE FACT IS, LIFE FOR

LOCALS IS FAR FROM

PARADISE.

MORE THAN 30% OF FAMILIES

WITH YOUNG CHILDREN LIVE

BELOW THE POVERTY LINE.

OVER ALL OF THIS TERRITORY

OF 100,000 PEOPLE OR SO,

THE POVERTY RATE IS 23%,

COMPARED TO 15% ON THE

MAINLAND.

BUT THERE IS HOPE.

THE BEACHES HERE ON THE

ISLAND OF ST. JOHN ARE

SIMPLY BREATHTAKING, BUT

JUST STEPS AWAY FROM HAWKS

NEST BEACH, SOMETHING ELSE

IS HAPPENING.

FRESHWATER BEACH IS

TALKING ABOUT THE GOSPEL

HERE WITH THE LOCALS, THAT

THEY SO DESPERATELY NEED.

EACH SUNDAY YOU WILL FIND

THEM HERE, RIGHT NEXT TO

THE BEACH, PRAISING JESUS.

PASTOR TERRY AND HIS WIFE

MARTHA ARE MISSIONARIES IN

ST. JOHN.

GOD CALLED THEM DURING

THEIR VERY FIRST VISIT TO

THE ISLAND.

GOD SPOKE IN A QUIET

VOICE AND SAID, TERRY,

THIS IS A PLACE FOR YOU.

> OUR APARTMENT BECAME

THE TRIAGE FOR SPIRITUALLY

BROKEN PEOPLE.

PEOPLE WERE DESPERATE FOR

ANSWERS.

David: INCLUDING ONE

MAN FIGHTING AN ADDICTION

THAT PASTOR TERRY WILL

NEVER FORGET.

THIS MAN KNOCKED ON THE

DOOR AND SAID, TERRY, IF

YOU DON'T HAVE SOMETHING

POSITIVE YOU CAN SHARE

WITH ME, THIS IS MY LAST

MOMENT.

BUT GOD INTERVENED, SO I

LIVED LIFE WITH HIM FOR

THE NEXT WEEK.

FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR

EACH ONE YOU HAVE DRAWN

HERE THIS MORNING.

UNFORTUNATELY,

BROKENNESS -- IT DOESN'T

MATTER IF YOU'RE IN

PARADISE.

David: AMBER WAS

LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY

THREE YEARS AGO, BUT GOD

KEPT LEADING HER TO

ST. JOHN.

THERE IS A LOT OF

PEOPLE DOWN HERE WHO DON'T

REALLY KNOW HOW TO DEAL

WITH THEIR BROKENNESS.

THERE IS A LOT OF ALCOHOL

AND DRUGS ON THE ISLAND.

WE HAVE SEEN LIVES

SAVED.

WE'VE SEEN PEOPLE WHO ARE

HURT JUST REACH OUT TO US.

AND THEY DO NOT KNOW US

THAT WELL AT ALL, BUT

BECAUSE GOD WAS IN IT, AND

WE WERE DEFINITELY PRAYED

UP AND MOVING FORWARD,

WERE BLESSED BY BEING

OBEDIENT.

David: THAT

OBEDIENCE INCLUDES SHARING

THE THE GOOD NEWS WITH

POOR CHILDREN ATTENDING

PUBLIC SCHOOL.

WE CAN GO DOWN DURING

THEIR LUNCH RECESS, AND

THEY ALLOW US TO PLAY WITH

THE CHILDREN.

AND THEY ALSO ALLOW US TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL.

THEY ALLOW US TO SHARE

JESUS STORIES WITH THOSE

LITTLE CHILDREN.

David: THAT'S WHY

FRESHWATER CHURCH MAKES

MINISTERING TO PEOPLE AND

FOSTERING TO A COMMUNITY A

PRIORITY.

GET URE ARM YOUR ARMS AROUND

PEOPLE AND LET THEM

UNDERSTAND THE VALUE THEY

HAVE IN GOD, AND YOU'LL BE

SHOCKED HOW PEOPLE WILL

BEGIN TO COME OUT.

David: IT HAS BEEN

WORKING.

WHEN THE CHURCH STARTED

YEARS AGO, THEY HAD SPARCE

ATTENDANCE.

NOW MORE AND MORE KEEP

FLOWING IN.

THIS CHURCH MADE A

DIFFERENCE IN MY LIFE.

David: KATIE CONNELL

HAS BEEN ON THE ISLAND FOR

23 YEARS NOW.

I SAID, GOD, IF YOU'LL

LET ME LIVE THERE, I'LL

CLEAN TOILETS.

I DON'T CARE WHAT I HAVE

TO DO.

SURE ENOUGH, I GOT HERE

AND I DID CLEAN TOILETS.

David:

TOILET-CLEANING TURNED

INTO RUNNING FOUR

COMPANIES.

EVENTUALLY LIFE GOT TOO

BUSY, AND KATIE STARTED

FOCUSING ON HERSELF.

THEN SHE LEARNED A

VALUABLE LESSON.

RELIGION, IT'S KIND OF

KEPT IN THE DARK HERE.

THEY MIGHT GO TO CHURCH ON

SUNDAY, BUT THEY DON'T

TALK ABOUT IT DURING THE

WEEK.

AND THIS WAS A CHURCH THAT

WAS TEACHING ME, NOT ONLY

DO YOU TALK ABOUT IT

DURING THE WEEK, YOU TALK

ABOUT IT WITH YOUR

EMPLOYEES, YOU RUN YOUR

COMPANY THAT WAY.

YOU DO EVERYTHING

ACCORDING TO GOD'S WILL.

David: FOR PASTORS

TERRY AND MARTHA, THAT'S

WHAT IT IS ABOUT, DOING

GOD'S WILL, EVEN IF IT

MEANS BEING FAR AWAY FROM

THEIR GROWN-UP KIDS.

I LIKE HUGGING THEM AND

I MISS THEM.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, GOD

HAS BLESSED US SO MUCH,

AND WE'LL LEAVE A LEGACY

FOR OUR CHILDREN TO CARRY

ON.

IT'S ALL GOOD.

David: IT SURE IS,

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE

JESUS AND ARE SPREADING

HIS WORD TO THE

UNDERPRIVILEGED.

THE CHURCH IS INDEED

PROVIDING MUCH-NEEDED

FRESH WATER.

EVERYBODY NEEDS A DRINK

OF FRESH WATER, AND WE

THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT WE

WERE BRINGING TO PEOPLE,

THE WORD OF JESUS.

AND JESUS SAID IT HIMSELF,

IF YOU JUST GIVE SOMEONE A

CUP OF WATER IN MY NAME...

* EVERY DAY GONNA LET MY

LITTLE LIGHT SHINE *

David: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, ON THE ISLAND OF

ST. JOHN.

Caitlin: UP NEXT,

MOVIES FOR YOUR WHOLE

FAMILY, FROM "THE SECRET

LIVE OF PETS," TO "FINDING

DORY."

PLUS MORE YOU MAY WANT TO

THERE IS SOME PRETTY

GOOD OPTIONS FOR FAMILIES

AT THE MOVIES THIS

WEEKEND.

CBN'S MARK MARTIN SPOKE

WITH BOB WALLASHEFSKI TO

HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT

PICKS FOR YOUR FAMILIES.

LET'S START WITH "THE

SECRET LIFE OF PETS," AND

IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GEARED

FOR KIDS AND ADULTS.

WHAT DID YOU THINK?

I LIKED IT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS CUTE.

I THINK FAMILIES HAVE

SOMETHING THIS WEEKEND TO

CONSIDER IF THEY WANT TO

TAKE THE KIDS OR TAKE THE

FAMILY TO A MOVIE.

IT ESSENTIALLY LOOKS AT

SOME CREATIVE IDEAS OF

WHAT PETS DO WHEN THEIR

OWNERS HEAD TO WORK OR GO

OFF TO STARBUCKS OR DO

WHATEVER THEY DO.

AND IT'S CLEVER.

DO THEY JUST SIT AT THE

DOOR ALL DAY WAITING FOR

THEIR OWNERS TO RETURN?

DO THEY JUST RAID THE

REFRIGERATOR?

DO SHE JUS THEY JUST BARK AT

SQUIRRELS ALL DAY?

IT IS A FEW OF THE THINGS

THE CREATORS CAME UP WITH,

AND THERE ARE REALLY ARE

SOME CHUCKLES.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, IT

FOCUSES ON MAX AND HIS PET

PAL, WHEN ONE DAY HIS

OWNER KATIE BRINGS HOME A

RESCUE DOG NAMED DUKE.

MAX DOES NOT WANT TO SHARE

THAT APARTMENT WITH

ANOTHER DOG.

AND PRETTY SOON THEY'RE THEIR

TUMBLING LANDS THEM OUT ON

THE STREET, WHERE THERE

ARE SOME DOG CATCHERS, AND

A GANG OF MEAN ANIMALS LED

BY A NOT SO CUTE BUNNY.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY, YES.

I DO WANT TO POINT OUT

THAT, LIKE MANY ANIMATED

FILMS THESE DAYS, THERE IS

SOME TOILET HUMOR TO DEAL

WITH.

AND ONE THING I'LL SAY,

THE DOGS LIE ABOUT

SOMETHING THEY SAY THEY

DID TO THEIR OWNER, WHICH

ISN'T TRUE, BUT IF IT WERE

TRUE, IT WOULD BE A BIT

GRUESOME.

CAN FAMILIES NAVIGATE

THAT, I BELIEVE SO.

BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE

FAMILIES KNOW ABOUT IT,

TOO.

WHAT OTHER

FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIES ARE

IN THEATERS RIGHT NOW?

IT IS A PRETTY GOOD

TIME, ACTUALLY, IF YOU

WERE LOOKING TO GO TO SOME

MOVIES.

THE NUMBER ONE FILM IN THE

NATION, AND HAS BEEN FOR

THREE WEEKS, IS "FINDING

DORY."

AND IT HAS BEEN OUT THREE

WEEKS, AND MADE ALMOST

$HAD 400 MILLION IN THE

U.S.

WE GAVE IT A PERFECT SCORE

OF FIVE OUT OF FIVE.

IF YOU'RE WATCHING THIS

TODAY AND YOU'RE LOOKING

FOR SOMETHING, AND YOU'RE

THINKING, SHOULD I GO WITH

"SECRET LIFE OF PETS" OR

"FINDING DORY," FINDING

DORY, BUT "SECRET LIFE OF

PETS" IS GOOD, TOO.

AND MAYBE FOR A DATE-NIGHT

MOVIE, "THE FREE STATE OF

JONES."

NOW, I RARELY TALK ABOUT A

FILM THAT IS AS VIOLENT AS

THIS ONE, BUT THIS IS KIND

OF A "SAVING PRIVATE RYAN"

OR A "BRAVE HEART," WHERE

IT IS REALLY GOOD AT ITS

CORE, BUT THE FIRST 10 TO

15 MINUTESIT IS PRETTY

GRUESOME IN THIS

CONFEDERATE BATTLE SCENE.

SO NOT A FILM FOR

EVERYBODY, BUT FOR PEOPLE

WHO LIKE "BRAVE HEART" AND

THAT SORT OF THING, THEY

MAY WANT TO READ OUR

LONGER REVIEW.

ALL RIGHT, BOB

WALLASHEFSKI WITH "PLUGGED

IN."

TAKE FOR YOUR TIME AND

INSIGHTS.

YOU BETCHA, MARK.

Caitlin: IN THAILAND,
