Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Mackerel! October 15, 2002
Being a member of the more (as Eddie Izzard would say) "Relaxed and groovy" sect of Christianity, it is not surprising that the wonderful VeggieTales series appeals to me, even at the ripe old age of eighteen. The videos not only give God's message in a way that little children can swallow, but sometimes as a young adult with a past of staunch religiousness to live up to, it helps me to understand my faith better to see it through the eyes of a child (or indeed, an asparagus).
So when the first feature by these marvelous people came out, I was among the first to see it. (And if you think I was embarrassed buying a ticket to "Jonah" the weekend that "Red Dragon" opened, well then...you're right) The film was stunning. It holds true to the unique (although some call it Pythonesque) style of the videos but does not depend on the videos for enjoyment. It is original, charming, bright, and Sherlock Holmes couldn't find a hint of dysfunction in the whole eighty-some minutes.
On the way to a concert, the car breaks down and driver Bob the Tomato and navigator Dad Asparagus get help in a nearby seafood restaurant. But the real tragedy is Laura Carrot has lost the backstage pass she won out the car window. Now, Junior thinks this is great because she was being mean and flaunting it. At any rate, Junior encounters three "questionable" characters who call themselves "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" (See "Very Silly Songs" or "The Ultimate Silly Song Countdown") played by Pa Grape, Larry the Cucumber and Mr. Lunt. They tell a story about "that time when [they] did that one thing with that one guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Film For Everyone! October 1, 2002
By DCB
I saw a premier showing of Jonah and I could not believe the quality of the animation, the incredible music, and a very well told story. I thought every aspect was outstanding. My kids are 6 & 9 and they loved it and were singing the songs afterwards. As a dad I thought it provided positive messages I want reinforced in my children. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is certainly one of the the best kids movies I have seen. In fact, if I did not have kids I would have loved it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Idea's First Full Length Film is Veggie Fun March 20, 2003
Format:DVD
Bob the Tomato and Dad Asparagus are taking a group of kids to a concert. When they're waylaid by porcupines, they find themselves waiting at an unusual restaurant. There, they meet the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. Sensing that the group needs a lesson, they proceed to tell the story about the one time they did do something.
Seems a number of years ago, they met up with the prophet Jonah. When he didn't want to follow an assignment from God, he tries to run away on their boat. But will God let him off the hook that easily?
Once again, the guys at Big Idea have created a wonderful film that everyone can enjoy. Heck, I saw it twice in the theater myself. They stick pretty close to the Biblical story while still throwing in the silliness that we've come to expect. While one or two parts may appear over the top, they work for this movie aimed at pre-school kids. Especially effective in getting their message across is the ending. By including the entire Biblical story, they make an excellent point about compassion and mercy that we all need to remember. Their animation, while not up to the bigger budget of Pixar, is the best I've ever seen them do. The water shots are amazing all by themselves. They've certainly come a long way from their first video.
This DVD set is loaded with lots of fun things beside the movie. The first disc features the movie in wide and full screens. Full screen is the default on this disc, but it's easy enough to go into the menu and change it. This disc also features three audio commentaries. Phil and Mike do their usual entertaining job of giving insight into the making of the film. The second commentary from producer Ameake Owens and director of animation Marc Vulcano is just as enlightening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jonah: I laughed, I blubbered, it became a part of me. October 5, 2002
I took my 3 year old daughter who is an avid Veggie fan to see the film. It was her first movie and Jonah was well worth being her inaugural film going experience. But this is far from just a kid's movie. One of the Chicago newspaper reviewers said that this was not a film for adults without children. This would be far from accurate. The movie certainly works for children, but those familiar with the Veggie franchise understand that much in the same way as Bugs Bunny, The Flintstones, and the Muppets, that much of the humor is for the adults. Silliness abounds from the opening car trip sing-a-long right through to the closing credits.
In between the opening and closing sequences Jonah: A Veggietales Movie tells a cohesive story for both the Veghead and the Veggie novice alike. Three of the main characters in the film are the Pirates who don't do anything who have a prominent part in the Veggie sing-a-long videos. However, there is nothing in the film that hinges on previous experience with Bob, Larry et al.
The film entertains and instructs. Veggie Tales are educational. They are meant to be. This film is certainly no exception. The point of this story is to be compassionate and merciful. It makes that point by telling the story of a character who was neither and a God who was both.
The story effectively segues between Veggie present and Bible past to let the modern day characters learn from the Biblical ones. I do not want to leave you with the impression that this film is merely a 90 minute flannel graph (Oooh flannel graph) for church going children. This is a fine and funny film for kids of all ages (Including 38). The animation is crisp. The musical numbers are fun and provocative.
The film is certainly suitable for all ages.
