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 »

Cute and Witty!
7 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Great movie for the whole family. There is no crude jokes or swearing! Has a witty plot and lovable characters. I only wish the movie had more songs. VeggieTales movies usually have lots of songs! Anyway, it's still is a wholesome, clever and cute little film. There was even some jokes that adults could only get, like gags about the "Love Boat" and stuff. But, it didn't have Bob the Tomato, in the movie until the very end. That was too bad because Bob is my favorite character. My favorite part is at the end when the "Rock Monster" music video plays. It's really funny. Overall, I recommend this film for anyone who wants to see a harmless and witty movie about talking vegetables. Enjoy!
