While on set filming, Bob the Tomato decides to respond to a fan's letter about "waiting", meanwhile everyone's patience is tested by spitting camels, a confused nurse, an easily distracted film crew, and a host of other laughable filming disasters! Join the comical chaos and calamity in Abe and the Amazing Promise that reminds kids that God always keeps his promises . . . even if we have to wait a while!

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat lacklustre February 25, 2009
Format:DVD
What do a zany inventor named Jacques on a mission to bring back the boo-boo birds to Boo-Boo-Ville and heroes of the faith Abraham and Sarah have in common? Other than making appearances on the latest VeggieTales DVD, Abe and the Amazing Promise, all three characters have important lessons to learn in patience and perseverance.

Hey - Abraham and Sarah aren't characters; they are real people. Yes they certainly are. However, any viewer familiar with the VeggieTales series will recognize that when Bible people are rendered into the biblically based VeggieTales they become fictional characters. There is no doubt about it.

It shouldn't be a surprise when show hosts Bob the Tomato and Jr. Asparagus transport themselves into the Old Testament via the power of imagination to interview Abraham (or Abe for short), that they find the details of his life abbreviated, and altered from those we're familiar with. Ur is a retirement community everyone loves, Ishmael, Hagar and other politically incorrect family members are conveniently absent. The storyline is simple, brief and punctuated with a frenetic nurse, cranky French peas suffering in the desert sun, and Jr. having a hard time waiting for his mom's chocolate chip cookies. Children will grasp the high points: Abe and Sarah left Ur, they waited for a baby, for a long time, the baby finally arrived, God keeps His promises, be patient - but won't hold onto much else.

Moving along on the disc we come to a new Silly Song entitlted "Sneeze if You Need To", performed by Larry the Cucumber as the Sneeze Doctor, with Bob the Tomato starring as the tormented patient with a sneeze at the tip of his nose.

Format:DVD
Veggietales has always had the ability to make me awe at how clever they are, and how witty they can be... while still conveying a biblical message. This unfortunately the worst attempt they have ever made in my opinion. If you don't own any veggietales movies... don't start here. You'll get the wrong impression. Start with A Snoodles Tale, The Big River Rescue, The Easter Carroll, or the Sumo of the Opera. It just is bland. The message fails to come across... and the silly song is weak.

It seems as if the writing was either rushed or done by somebody else.

I would only recommend this one if you are like my family and own every single one of their movies and basically want to continue collecting all their films.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best work but still good February 20, 2009
Format:DVD
Someone mentioned in an earlier review it seemed as though this was not written by the same person that wrote the other Veggie Tales...they are right. Phil Visher usually wrote all of the stories for Veggie Tales. Since he lost control of Big Idea (I highly recommend his book "Me, Myself, & Bob" that tells what happened) some others have taken turns at writting. Not a good thing.

While very good as far as children's videos (Christian or otherwise) it fell short of the Veggie Tales quality. The animation was great, the story line was a great idea but fell short of what it could have been. Of course, all Veggie Tale fans will want to have this, but if this is your first Veggie Tale or you are short on cash, do what a fellow reviewer suggested; get Snoodle's Tale, an Easter Carol, or Lord of the Beans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best October 8, 2009
Format:DVD
As far as Veggie Tales offerings go, Abe and the Amazing Promise is average. This means that my kids and I still happily watch it over and over again.

The first story tells how Abraham and Sarah had to wait for God to fulfill his promise of giving them a child, Isaac. It is surprisingly short. It is pretty weak for two reasons: it doesn't tell much of the actual Abraham story, and it is so packed full of whiny characters that need to learn patience that it can be painful to listen to.

In the Silly Song, Larry is a Sneeze Doctor attempting to treat Bob, who is trying to sneeze but can't. It is catchy enough that I have spontaneously sung it in public.

The second story tells how an impatient inventor named Jacques must learn to take the time to do his work well so he can bring the BooBoo birds back to BooBooville. It is the longer and better story of the two -- very entertaining! It has a good plot full of random twists, witty lines, and fun music.

All told, this DVD is one of my two-year-old's current favorites. He has clearly taken its message to heart. He runs to put it in the DVD player whenever we tell him, "You need to be patient."

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the other reviews are saying December 3, 2011
By Mark E.
Format:DVD
I feel like I watched a different episode than the rest of the reviewers! I'll agree that the first story about Abraham was just alright, but then my opinion differs with the rest. Blunders in Boo-Booville is one of my favorite Veggie Tale segments. The story is a nice take off on the beginning of Beauty and the Beast and the songs follow suit. There are three great songs in this story that rank highly in Veggie Tales cannon for melody, humor, and feeling. Visually it is also one of the most beautiful animated stories yet. I made my son a Veggie Tales mix CD and was highly disappointed that I can't find this songs anywhere for purchase. Anyway, don't miss Blunders in Boo-Booville.
