They are: “Wild America,” starring Jonathan Taylor; “Jungle 2 Jungle,” staring Tim Allen and JoBeth Williams; “Mrs. Brown,” starring Judi Dench and Billy Connolly; and “Batman And Robin,” starring George Clooney, Chris O’Donnell and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of Movieguide, and founder of the Christian Film and Television Commission, said, “These movies are not only well-made, but they are also refreshingly free of excessive sex, violence and foul language.” He noted, however, that some of the ‘Ten Best 1997 Films for Mature Audiences’ may deal with strong subject matter and caution is advised.

    “It is our prayer that the movie industry will make more and more recommendable movies and that they will remove all offensive elements in them,” Baehr added.

    The award presentation ceremony will also include Baehr’s annual “Report To The Entertainment Industry,” and Movieguide’s $25,000 “Epiphany” prizes, donated by philanthropist Sir John Templeton, which will be awarded to one film and one television program that epitomize “outstanding work in creating inspiring entertainment, which results in an increase in either man’s love of God or understand of God.” Last year’s winners were CBS’s “Touched By An Angel” and the Buena Vista release, “The Preacher’s Wife.”
