Storyline

A self-possessed shepherd does not bow to a passing king, Laius of Thebes, so Laius draws his sword. The shepherd, Oedipus, slays the king and later, in a nightclub, hears the singing of Jocasta, Laius's widow and queen. Oedipus is smitten, and soon he's in her bed. Then, blind Tiresias, in the public square, announces that a prophecy has been fulfilled. Oedipus, always a man of action, gouges out his eyes, Jocasta hurls herself from a parapet, and Antigone, their daughter, begins her new role as guide to her blind father. The film is stop motion, with fruits and vegetables as the main character. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I couldn't stop laughing. I love how it put veggie tales to shame - that was great. My mom was always afraid of them. I am trying to convince her to see this - but veggie tales has scarred her for life.

I'd rate this movie PG-13 for obvious reasons. I won't spoil it - you must see it to see how funny it truly is.

If you're old enough, watch it - all people love it. It's very short - that means it's to the point. It also has great animation - very fun. I like how the vegetables/fruits are completely random - no organization at all.

Funniest movie I have ever seen ... really.
