This is a "remake" of It's a Wonderful Life; the old b&w Christmas version with (I believe) Donna Reed & Jimmy Stuart.....with a little Polar Express thrown in for good animation. (or maybe it was just me that saw that train as a reference)
I would highly recommmend this one; a really great lesson.
Struggling with why you are where you are, struggling with why your dreams haven't come true? This cartoon is about a character, Stewart, who didn't see his biggest dream of being a football hero come true, and discovers on a mysterious train ride the reasons God had for him not fulfilling that dream. Perhaps there are lives who wouldn't be touched if your dreams came true, but perhaps your dreams will be fulfilled in a different manner than you could imagine, who knows, but God. This is a great cartoon for everyone, young and old, but especially those who are struggling to find a meaningful life for Christ.
Our whole family enjoyed this latest VeggieTales episode. Goodnight Junior was hilarious as it was all too familiar. Meant to Be is a beautiful song of hope written by Steven Curtis Chapman. Viewers will want to make sure they watch the video as well as the behind the song interview with Steven Curtis Chapman.
VeggieTales It's a Meaningful Life is sure to delight viewers young and old.
Disclosure: I received a copy of this dvd to help facilitate the writing of this honest review. All opinions are my own.
The latest DVD we received has been It's a Meaningful Life. Which takes the same similar story from the Classic "It's a wonderful life". You meet an unhappy Stewart (played by Larry the Cucumber) who is certain his life would be much better if he had not been injured when he was a teenage cucumber. While his life on the outside appears amazing...he is unhappy and thinks he missed out on so much!
The part I love most about Veggie Tales is that while they are without a doubt, childrens videos, they have adult humor and are entertaining for the adult viewer as well. It's a Meaningful Life will be a DVD that will become a treasure in our family collection.
I'd buy this for every family with kids of all ages if I could.
Today I got my hands a copy of the brand new It's a Meaningful Life VeggieTales DVD and it's so much fun! I do believe I want to memorize the brown teddy bear song. ;) VeggieTales really do teach values, and the lesson behind this video is about being content. Although it brings to mind the classic film It's a Wonderful Life, which honestly I've never seen this is my kind of movie and perfect for year round. Easily I can see us watching this one again and again. The what-ifs in life always make you wonder, but learning to be content is such a valuable quality of life and these VeggieTales are great group to help teach your child just exact how to make it work.
