Product Description

For thousands of years people have heard the story of a man who was eaten by a whale and lived to tell about it! But never in all that time has it been told by vegetables...until NOW! Get ready as Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber and the rest of the Veggie gang set sail on a whale of an adventure in JONAH, Big Idea's first full-length, 3-D animated feature film. Filled with music, laughs and some of the silliest adventurers ever to be swallowed whole, this is the story of Jonah and the whale as you've never seen it before, a story where everyone learns that one of the best gifts you can give – or get – is a second chance.

The question is, "What can I say?" Even for a Veggie Tales movie, I love taking it in with my little girl. I do not get sick of it, not at all. And it is well worth the lesson learned throughout the film. I think it is just as entertaining as "Harry Potter", which I refuse to watch, or even read for that matter. The people behind Veggie Tales are just awesome, because they are not looking for credit, and they deserve a lot. They do so much for God's kingdom! They don't ask for the world, yet they reach the world, and this generation of our children, and even some of the adults who need a wake up call every now and then!
I love how they made someone such as Archibald Asparagus the character of Jonah. But yet it still has Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato, Pa Grape, and even a silly caterpiller to stick with Jonah, almost all the way! The song at the end (Jonah Was a Prophet) should hit home with everyone, not just as a "lesson", so to speak, but also as a song of fun and entertainment. All of the songs are wonderful, as the movie begins strictly on a fun note with "Billy Joe McGuffrey" and everyone cutting up and just having a blast in the van on the way to the Twippo concert. It also it gives me a very sobering look at myself and how many second chances I've had in my pathetic life! Yeah, I actually admit that! I've come a long way in 29 years. God is so good to us, let's not take that for granted. That's another thing that this movie very strongly states. (Don't you get it?!) I still have a long way to go.
Compassion and mercy, and a whole lot of fun! And you have to watch the movie all the way to the very, very end, especially the credits!! HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY!!!!!!!! HEY HEY, OH HO HO!!!

Boy is this cute! What a great way to show the story of Jonah to your kids. It's neat how the pirates explain at the end of the movie how Jonah really didn't understand God's compassion for the people of Nineveh, the fish slappers! Boy, how funny - fish slappers! It's pretty funny seeing the Ninevites going around slapping each other with fish. The imagination of these guys just is something else. Wonder how old they REALLY are?! But, the song "Second Chances" is worth the price of the video alone. The gospel group Anointed sings it and by golly are they talented! I'd never heard them before but wow, what a great song! Feels like church! My three-year-old just looked at me and said, "Mommy, that's a great song!" So yes, we dance to that song hands down. The only thing is that it may not hold the attention of the younger toddlers since it is a movie and things have to be explained more. i.e. what is Nineveh, why is Jonah going there, etc. But it definitely is worth every penny you spend on this video. I am just so very glad that we got it. Archibald Asparagus is awesome as Jonah and his camel Reginald has a looking glass just like Archibald. Very, very imaginative, entertaining and fun. Thanks Big Idea!

When I first saw this movie, I actually cried, laughing so hard! When Jonah is in the belly of the whale, Some vegetable angels come and talk to him, there. Their hairstyles and dress remind you of the more richly pigmented members of this society, and when they start singing, they look and sound for all the world like a black church choir. That one scene is the one I always think of from this movie. When my son watches the video, I will often come in and watch it during that scene. I absolutely LOVE it!
I think they captured the personality of the Biblical Jonah fairly well with Archibald playing the lead. While they tell the Biblical story of Jonah, they dress it up with aspects of the Veggie Tales assortment of characters that make it quite entertaining. The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything actually do, in this video -- they are participants in the story!
The best things about VeggieTales are all there, only moreso in this movie length presentation. The jokes for the parents are there in full force, so we adults can enjoy it along with our children. I recommend it highly.

I appreciate Big Idea's attempt to make excellent children's movies that are pro Christian in their values. Veggie Tales are well done, humorous, and inventive, but unfortunately the feature film Jonah misses the mark when it comes to communicating the Christian message. The story is based on the Bible's rendition of the Story of Jonah. To Christians the Bible is the Word of God. However early in the story we are treated to a song and dance routine that mocks the "Message from the Lord" as irrelevant and frivolous at best. Jonah spouts out such statements as "don't eat bats don't eat pigs" and "don't do drugs, stay in school--I message from the Lord." I feel that this trivializes the very core of Christian doctrine, that God has revealed himself to us through the Word of God. The "message from the Lord" is the heart of our belief and not a trite and meaningless sound bite.
As the movie goes on Jonah confronts the Ninevahites for thier sin of slapping each other with fishes and encourages them to start being nice to each other. Again Big Idea misses the heart of the message, for the people to turn from their wicked ways and give the Lord their worship.
The Christian community is frustrated with the lack of Christian friendly programing. With Disney making movies celebrating animism (Lion King), ancestor worship (Mulan), Indian tribal religion (Brother Bear), and taking a good Christian character in Pocahontas and making her a pantheist, Christians are looking for alternatives. I feel that the blatant errors presented in the aforementioned Disney flicks are far less dangerous than the more subtle undermining of Christian doctrine in Jonah. For a truly Christian movie try Finding Nemo.
