If you are a huge Veggie fan, you will be glad to get this one. If you are not or new to the Veggie world, look elsewhere.
MacLarry & The Stinky Cheese Battle seems remarkably similar to what Phil Vischer mentioned as a problem dealing with "Jonah": Attempting to cram in too much stuff in far too little time...only this time, there was no two-hour movie possibility to allow time for development. The jokes fall flat, the rushed delivery style makes everything seem irrelevant, and young kids will have a tough time empathizing with characters who (despite the 3D animation) are notably 2D in personality. The characters are more of a "Bob the Builder" ensemble in this movie- audiences will find it nearly impossible really cares about any of the characters except MacLarry (Archibald Asparagus doesn't even speak a word, despite being referred to throughout the episode). As a Veggie Tale, this seems like a cheap knock-off of "How To Train Your Dragon", only without the budget, time, creativity or humor. Nothing intelligent here to keep the attention of the adults watching, and a blur of messiness drains the value out of a formerly worthwhile set of videos.
Terribly jumbled, non-memorable songs about nothing. Badly-done Chuck Norris jokes.Read more ›
In answer to a letter the VeggieTales gang has received from a kid whose interests are different than his friends, Scooter steps up to tell a story. That's right, Scooter the Scottish Carrot. So is it any wonder that the story takes us back to ancient Scotland?
Well, okay, as they freely admit, it's an alternative universe Scotland where The Barber-barians are just a gorge away from the Romans. While the two areas used to be friends, harmless pranks got out of hand and now the two sides feud.
Into this world comes MacLarry (Larry the Cucumber as voiced by Mike Nawrocki). His father is Chog Norrius (voiced by Henry Haggard), the leader of their clan. But all MacLarry seems to do during his initiations is mess things up. That's because he's not a good barber or prankster or definitely not a good prankster barber. Instead, he wants to be an inventor. But even his inventions don't seem to work right. Discouraged, he sets out to find his hero, Archimedes. Will he find him or will he cause an even bigger crisis in this war?
There was nothing especially noteworthy about the story. It pretty much followed the plot points I was expecting. But what made it fun was the return of the trademark Veggie humor. There were site gags and puns aplenty. Several of them were throw away lines I just loved. And some of them would even go right over the heads of the kids but be caught by their parents.Read more ›
