Kailey's Review:

This movie was perfect! 

Some parts were a little scary at first but then they were funny.  I have a lot of favorite parts (too many to write here).  I didn’t think any part of the movie was boring and it was just long enough for me.  The movie was a little loud at times but the popcorn was super good.

Sharla's Review:

I have to admit, I enjoy Veggie Tales.  I was a little concerned about taking the kids to the movie (we also took our 3 year old). The preview showed some rock monsters and I didn’t want them to be afraid during the movie. The scary moments were very short lived and the girls realized very soon that nothing was as it seemed and those incidents ended up being quite funny.  I was also aware that the message might be difficult for the kids to figure out and it was. The main point was that hero’s never give up. Which is a good message, I was just hoping for something more Biblical.   Keeping that in mind, I find that I need to discuss all shows my kids watch with them and talk about the message or any questions they have with scary parts or “bad” characters.
