Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Consistently very funny, clever, and warm-hearted, this tribute to J.R.R. Tolkien provides the VeggieTales family with a terrific platform from which to deliver this episode's relevant message. The appearance of the basic story and iconic characters from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit -- "Billboy Baggypants," "Randalf," "Ahem" (a great "Gollum" character) and all the little "flobbits" -- should entertain everyone on a variety of levels. For those familiar with The Ring Trilogy, it's a hoot.

Less religious than most of the entries in the VeggieTales franchise, this parable about wisely using the gifts we have been given goes down very easily.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
