Editorial Reviews

From KIDS FIRST!: Jimmy Stewart fans get ready for a new version of It’s a Wonderful Life. An asparagus has taken over the leading role. Stuart’s life is falling apart, and he focuses his life on event where he failed in the past. He boards the “What if Express” and finds out what life would have been like if he became famous when he was younger. The same lessons as the classic tale still shine through, along with a message of God’s love for the person you are, not what you might have been. It also clearly demonstrates that God has a plan for you, even if you don’t know what it is. Adults and children alike will laugh together as the beloved Veggie Tale gang sings, dances, and teaches importnat lessons about life. See how many Christams stories you spot as you watch this delightful story. We saw, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Polar Express, a bit of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and A Christmas Carol. Child Juror Comments: I loved this movie because it had a great lesson that God loves you, and even if something happened that you didn’t want, He has a plan for you. I think the cinematography was pretty good. It’s not the best in the world, but is still pretty good. They were nice to each other. When the main character was in trouble, someone would come along and help him. I think my friends would love this DVD becasue they love Veggie Tales, and they would love the lesson learned in this. May favorite part was when they went on the train ride, and he saw what his life would be like if he caught the football. Ages 5-12

5.0 out of 5 stars Doing good, veggie tales! October 9, 2010
I feel like there has been a shift in the focus of veggie tale productions. Before it seemed to be a lot more bible-centered, which is something I miss now when I watch their new ones to be honest. I think it's cool that they make spin-offs of old movies but I miss the creativity and just the simple bible stories they once had. That and it seems like veggie tales has become very larry-focused. I like larry but I also love the other characters as well! Despite that, I do see all the effort they put in this DVD. It's really deep, even for a children's dvd and in many ways, relateable for all ages. The silly song with Junior was really funny and overall the dvd was really good with a great message. Their productions seem to be getting better and better, but I'm still missing and yearning for some of the old simple bible messages and having all the characters have a chance at the spotlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still doing great October 5, 2010
Veggie Tales was lacking for a while; most of this was due to internal struggles (read Phil Vischer's book, Me Myself & Bob, to find out what) With Sweetpea Beauty, they really showed they were back! The quality still is high with It's a meaningful Life.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love love love this movie! November 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great cartoon. I love veggie tales, but this is a new favorite.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the whole family October 23, 2010
In true VeggieTales style, It's a Meaningful Life takes a familiar, classic Christmas movie and turns it into a fun, whimsical tale for kids. This tale of being content with your current life and trusting God is one that all kids will need to know. They need to know that they are truly important to God just the way they are. Their life is meaningful especially when they are living for God. A servant's heart is a beautiful thing, and fame and fortune aren't always what they are cracked up to be.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the ENTIRE Family October 21, 2010
I have been watching Veggie Tales DVD's longer then I have been a mom. I have yet to find a DVD that I have not enjoyed. The latest animations have been superb and rival larger name companies. The story lines have morals and lessons to learn. You don't have to worry about the wrong language or bad story lines. They are wonderfully family-friendly.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still centered around the Bible March 9, 2011
By Sailor1
For those that feel VeggieTales have gotten away from the Bible, this story is based not just on the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life", but also on scripture. Stewart's little girl is told, "God's plan for you is true", or, as the prophet Jeremiah tells us, "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11).

5.0 out of 5 stars the Value of being content November 1, 2010
I love VeggieTales! I really do. As a matter of fact while I type this I am listening to The VeggieTales Incredible Christmas Tree CD that I downloaded (for free!) today from Amazon and AppleBlossom is playing nearby shaking her head back and forth to the music. She loves music and loves to dance and VeggieTales is one of our favorite choices. I hope as she grows we will have a large VeggieTales collection to choose from in both listening to music and watching DVDs. In recent weeks more and more of the older VeggieTales titles have become available on Netflix to view instantly (I'll share my opinions of individual shows soon..) and I just love them!

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.

*Thanks to Christina of LBI for providing a copy for review.*
