Now on DVD: Jonah; A VeggieTales Movie

Synopsis: The characters from the VeggieTales television series re-tell the story of Jonah and the whale.

What I liked about this movie: I’ve read the bible version of this story and it is one that is a bit difficult to understand at times. This re-telling was entertaining enough to keep my daughter interested but simple enough so she understood everything that was going on. I think it was the best re-telling of the story I’ve ever seen.

The thing that really impressed me is how the movie managed to tell the story and then put the lesson it teaches (everyone deserves a second chance) in a more modernized example so it was easier to understand it. Seeing this movie made me realize just why this particular series is so popular.

What I didn’t like about the movie: Nothing much other than the ending was a little bit predictable. And, that’s forgivable considering it is made for kids and not adults.

Final opinion: This is a movie your entire family should enjoy; whether you are religious or not.

On a scale from one to 10: I would give the movie a 9.
