Goofs

In The Star of Christmas, the stained glass in St. Bart's church was very simple, abstract shapes. In this film, however, the glass becomes a central part of the plot, and is shown to be very ornate portraits. However, some time has passed between the two films. It's possible that the church has had its windows replaced since the first film, especially considering that it has a new round window. See more »

Fantastic.
27 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you enjoy the other Big Idea productions, you will like this one. A unique look at Dickens that places the lovable Veggies in a struggle between what society says they should do and what their conscious tells them to do.

The literary and movie allusions are priceless. The Rebecca St James song at the end is absolutely gorgeous.

To say that you didn't like a Veggie Tales product because of the "religious propaganda" is like saying you watched a football game but didn't like it because of all the athleticism. That's the whole point.

My children loved it and I even found myself snickering a few times.
