Did You Know?

Trivia:
Phil Vischer was reluctant at first in "casting" Archibald Asparagus as Jonah since he wasn't a huge VeggieTales star at the time. Other choices were Bob, Larry, Junior Asparagus, and Jimmy Gourd.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: After the demonstration "slap of no return", there is a long shot showing the prisoners and the 'demo station'. The demo station still has a complete uncut rope even though it was cut to drop the slap.See more »

I laughed, I cried...it moved me, Bob!, 11 October 2002
Author: (LVW_happygirl_4@yahoo.com) from Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Do you know all of Larry's Silly-Songs by heart? Can you and your friends/children/parents recite an entire episode of VeggieTales without having the video in the VCR? If you answered yes, then I see no reason why you won't absolutely adore this great accomplishment and wonderful new addition to the Big Idea Productions family.

A full-length VeggieTales movie (83 minutes is a bit on the short side, but that works better for the kids) is slightly different from one of their videos. The plot is more developed and drawn out; attention is given to more details; the full story of Jonah (as found in the Bible...Veggie style, of course) is portrayed. The kids might get a little antsy with such a long movie compared to the Veggies they're used to, but they broke it up nicely with the narration sections.

The whale was impressive, but it might scare some of the kids at first. After the initial "swallowing", though, it's not nearly as scary. The creators didn't sacrifice the message to release this movie on the big screen, and I was proud to see it.

Overall, I loved the movie. Larry was cute, the message was positive, the songs were entertaining and educational/fun. If you've never experienced VeggieTales, you might not get all of the jokes or might think it's a little strange to see "hopping" talking vegetables, but believe me...it's worth it.

Happy movie watching, and stick around through the credits for a cute little addition!
