Great job, Big Idea!

"Well, I absolutely love Veggie Tales, but it had been a while since I'd seen one. Therefore, this was a good break back into watching them. The Christmas message is very strong in this DVD, and it really reminds you that Christ is the reason for the season. It talks about what love really is, rather than just everyone being nice to each other, and I absolutely love how that is played out in the end. As you start watching, you may find the story to go a little slow, but just be patient, and you won't be disappointed! I feel that the ending is more than adequate to make up for the part or two that isn't so great!"
Great message--mediocre music

"I am a big veggie tales fan and I did enjoy this movie. I believe that the message is wonderful--well done and easy to understand. However, the music was not nearly as enjoyable as the other veggie tales and therefore, my kids don't enjoy watching this movie as much as some of the others. The bottom line is this--if my kids don't enjoy it, the best message in the world gets lost."
The Meaning of Christmas

"Cavis Appythart (A.K.A. Bob the tomato) is a big dreamer. His goal is to teach London, England, to love. His feeling is that no one in London is willing to care about one another, so he makes it his calling in life to teach them. He comes up with a fantastic idea to accomplish this: a play. He and his good buddy, Millward Phelps (A.K.A. Larry the cucumber) will write and direct a wonderful play with romance, comedy, and lots of lights! But when hopes of a great play begin to fade, will the "Teacher of Love" himself be able to love?
This was a cute movie. One part in particular made me giggle. The animation is great, considering that it is 3D, and the storyline was a decent one. I'm sure a better person to judge just how good this movie was would be a smaller child, but coming from a pre-teen, this movie was good. It won't be one that makes you gag and roll your eyes non-stop, and it teaches little ones a good lesson about love (not the romantic kind)."
