Trivia

Phil Vischer completed the script for this film in 2002 - before Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) was released. But because of the bankruptcy and buyout of Big Idea Productions, the film wasn't able to start production until late 2005. See more »

This might be their best!
16 February 2008 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Having kids around, I'm very familiar with the Veggie Tales. I've always admired their humor and their fun, and I enjoy something with a decent lesson or value that kids can learn. I was thoroughly impressed with this movie. This took a while to develop the story, but I believe it really made for their best feature, and some of the best work they've done to this point.

I would always stack their animation against pretty much anyone animating today, and their humor and fun really come out. I took nieces and nephews to see this film, and the kids laughed and laughed. I did too. What more can one desire from a Saturday afternoon at the movies? This is a winner.
