Jonah - a Veggietales Movie

Author : Mike Nawrocki

Available : Rented
Age Group :Children
Amazon.com Parents seeking kid-friendly entertainment can be comfortable letting their kids watch Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, which turns the characters from the biblical story of Jonah into a bunch of talking cucumbers, asparagus, peas, and other vegetables. When God instructs the prophet Jonah to go to the wicked city of Ninevah to spread His word, Jonah balks and tries to flee by ship--only to end up in the belly of a whale. When he finally consents to go to Ninevah, things don´t turn out quite the way he expects. The VeggieTales team uses computer animation and upbeat musical numbers to express biblical themes, but they do so without being painfully didactic. The animation (and the humor) isn´t as sophisticated as that in Toy Story or Shrek, and kids may find some elements of the story confusing, but this may provide an opportunity for parents and kids to discuss values. --Bret Fetzer --
