Entertaining, humorous take on biblical story.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The main characters tha us kids know and love disappear. We're introduced to a new cast, and they really aren't very funny or interesting.

Seeing as I'm a 31-year-old Jewish cynic from Philadelphia, it's plainly obvious that I am not the intended audience for Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie. But I know a feature-length advertisement when I see one.

The film is a hoot, and is just as good, if not better than much of what's on Saturday morning TV especially the pseudo-educational stuff we all can't stand.

The movie is a blast of educational energy, as bouncy animation and catchy songs escort you through the entire 85 minutes.

Bouncy animation and catchy songs keep the film from tasting too much like spinach.

Even if you're an agnostic carnivore, you can enjoy much of Jonah simply, and gratefully, as laugh-out-loud lunacy with a pronounced Monty Pythonesque flavor.

A whale of a good time for both children and parents seeking Christian-themed fun.

Despite its obvious agenda, the film moves along at a good clip (clocking in at 80 some minutes) and should entertain adults nearly as much as the kids.

If a big musical number like 'Praise the Lord, He's the God of Second Chances' doesn't put you off, this will be an enjoyable choice for younger kids.

October 18, 2002
The movie's heart is in the right place, but all its messages of tolerance might resonate better if the Spanish-accented pirate didn't get drawn with a gold tooth and the turban-wearing Khalil wasn't an opportunistic rug merchant.

Spears of Afro-topped asparagus singing gospel and French-accented peas working as maitre d's at a seafood restaurant -- what's not to love?

October 18, 2002
The script, the gags, the characters are all direct-to-video stuff, and that's where this film should have remained.

You and your kids could do worse. You and your kids probably have done worse.

The animation is competent, and some of the gags are quite funny, but Jonah ... never shakes the oppressive, morally superior good-for-you quality that almost automatically accompanies didactic entertainment.

I'm not generally a fan of vegetables but this batch is pretty cute.
October 13, 2002
Strictly for kids suffering from rescinded television privileges or adults seeking a nap in a cool, dark environment that reeks of stale popcorn.

Even generally sympathetic adults may eventually find their minds wandering, if only because of the characters' continual, annoying hopping; being vegetables, they have no legs, you see.
