Editorial Reviews

It's Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is hunting for a way to help others. On a tip that the old town theater will be shut down, Marlee cooks up a plan to save the stage and make a difference through the power of musical theater. With a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit - Up With Bunnies is hatched! There's only one thing missing the star of the show! When news spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church s Easter service, Marlee gets worried.  Concerned about the competition, she schemes to steal the starlet for her own pageant! But when things go haywire, will it be curtains for Marlee s dreams   or will she discover the true meaning of Easter and what helping others is really all about? Find out in this hare raising adventure!

3.0 out of 5 stars All Flash, Little Substance March 5, 2011
Format:DVD
Marlee Meade (played by Petunia Rhubarb) is a young reporter in Crisper County who is tired of the veggie interest fluff pieces she normally does. She quits her job to revitalize the local theater. Teaming up with her cameraman/writer (played by Larry the Cucumber), she decided to put on a new musical "Up with Bunnies." It will premier right before Easter and use musical theater to spread hope to others.

Then she learns that local girl made good Cassie Cassava (voiced by American Idol finalist Melinda Doolittle), winner of the TV talent show is going to be in town to sing at her home church on Easter Sunday. Marlee knows that if she can get Cassie to perform during opening night, she'll reach a wider audience. Can she do it? Will that really help the community?

Now please don't misunderstand what I am about to say. I found this video to be quite fun, possibly one of the funnier videos that they've put out recently. I laughed a few times at some of the pop culture references, even for shows I don't watch. And I loved catching a couple of classic songs and some characters we haven't seen in a while pop up. The new silly song is fun as well.

However....

We've seen the theater plot in these videos a couple of times already, couldn't they have come up with something new?

The theme of this episode is that we need to help others. No problem with that. But why make it an Easter video? They could have done a normal episode without the Easter trappings and had the same moral. Yes, they tie it into Jesus' sacrifice for us, but it seems weak to me.

Worse yet, they mention a couple of times what Easter is really about, but they don't really get into it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Surpisingly disappointed March 14, 2011
By coach
Format:DVD
I have never written a review on this website before, but I was so thoroughly disappointed in this Veggie Tales movie that I had to share with other potential buyers that there is a much better Easter story for kids on the market...Easter Carol, also from Veggie Tales.

I confess to being a huge Veggie fan, and even though my kids are older now, we continue to buy the new releases and enjoy them as a family. I was surprisingly disappointed in Twas the Night Before Easter, which I found lacking in any real explanation of what Easter was, as well as so redundant of past Veggie movies (this time it isn't Larry and Bob as Cavis and Millword trying to save an old theater by stealing a star, but Petunia Rhubarb as Marlee who was committing the theft...and this time the star was a celebrity "star," not a physical light-up star...but the motives were the same in each.)

I think Big Idea is trying to hard to crank out two movies a year these days and rushing through the script. I have not liked the recent movies as much as I did the movies from Veggie's Glory Days under Phil Vischer. I find the much less effective and the message is too forced. At any rate, this Easter show pales sorely in comparison to it's bigger brother Easter Carol (released years earlier); if you are looking for a much better venue from which to discuss the meaning of Easter with your kids, then Easter Carol is a far better bet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Star Of Christmas redo March 21, 2011
Format:DVD
We saw the promo for this on Meaningful Life ( great one, btw) and when we saw it was out, we snagged it.
except the promo is NOT what this movie is.
It's Star of Christmas redone...and not even redone well.
they even admit in the commentary that they changed it after the promo- dont elaborate on why- and that its basically the same as Star of Christmas.
They dont even touch on the True meaning of Easter- which is what i wanted and am trying to teach my children.
they LOVE the robot bunny... but thats REALLY not what i had in mind.

there have a few good veggie tales lately- this is not. avoid this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Something is missing March 11, 2011
Format:DVD
This Veggie Video is really ....well....ok. The animation is great, the writing was really good, the charaters good, the jokes were all there and funny, references to past Veggie Tales that fans look for were really good, music was fabulous (kids want the soundtrack)....the message as always great.......it is just something is missing.

I can not descibe it. It just doesnt leave you "feeling" like the others. It wasnt the best Veggie Tales ever, but it wasnt the worst by any means. I have done a lot of Veggie Tales reviews and I just can not find the words other than something is missing that is on the past shows.

Still, a must have for any Veggie fan. The kids loved it.

Like others, I found this video lacking a bit. Not because the animation wasn't great....because it was. My girls had fun watching it & they loved the songs that were sung (the songs are always a great part of Veggie tales). But it's true that it didn't really teach about the True Meaning of Easter. It mentioned about Jesus Christ dying for us....but my girls easily missed that part.

We can still enjoy this video, because it is appropriate for young children and the characters are cute & sometimes silly. But don't buy this one if you are looking for a teaching tool about the true Meaning of Easter....it's not really there.
