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.

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!!!
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.
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.
