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.

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.

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.

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 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mark Baker HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 10, 2009
Format: DVD
Bob the Tomato and Jr. Asparagus are the hosts for the newest addition to the VeggieTales library. Jr. is a bit distracted, however, because his mother promised his cookies when the show was over. Not perfectly fits with today's theme, Patience.

Up first is the title story. Bob is filming a documentary on Abraham (Pa Grape) and Sarah with the reluctant help of Jr. and the French Peas. But the Peas are constantly complaining about how hot it is and Jr. still wanting to get back in time for those cookies. Will they learn that waiting on someone who is trust worthy is always worth it?

This segment had some great laughs, especially the running gag of the nurse (Miss Achmetha) constantly mistaking "patience" for "patients." However, I was disappointed with a couple things in the story. First, they leave out the example of impatience, Ishmael. That one I can certainly understand. But they cut out an entire decade of how long Abraham had to wait for God to fulfill His promise. As much as I get the fact that this is a fictional take on a Bible story, that still seems like a major error.

The new silly song is "Sneeze if You Need to." It finds Larry playing a doctor who is trying to help Bob the Tomato sneeze. Frankly, I didn't find the song that funny, although the breaks they take to share trivia with us were pretty good.

Finally comes the longest segment, "Blunders in Boo-Boo-Ville." Jacques (Larry the Cucumber) is a member of an inventing club. But no one in the club has the patience to properly make their ideas, causing all kinds of problems. Will they ever learn to be patiently diligent?

This segment includes most of the songs, but they aren't quite as inspired as normal. Again, there are some good laughs here.

There's a good message to this disc, and some decent laughs. But this one is aimed more for kids then their parents or the series' many adult fans.
