Fun, colorful and somewhat accurate to the Genesis account

Knowing of original Big Idea productions (Veggietales), this movie is certainly positive in its message to trust in God. Even for the agnostic, the message is about God's fidelity in His promises. Of course, a couple times the veggies mess up the line by stating that "ALL ANIMALS" were called to the ark when in fact this is not only unrealistic but also inaccurate to the actual account which states two of every "KIND". A couple other things are inaccurate, but not really important. Nice colors as Big Idea always does, no bad words, no insulting or belittling others and although this account is about the world flooding, the story does not necessarily make this clear (such as other veggies and animals drowned, etc.). All in all, a nice movie about "God's plan" with a happy ending for the family who gets to start fresh. It's true that some see this account as cruel, but it is what it is.
