VeggieTales Sweetpea Beauty Review By Logan Strohl

While not the best VeggieTales release it is not the worst. It has a great message in it and the silly song is fun too. The story could have been better though and the animation has so many errors that it is really noticeable in this release because it was a different animation studio which thankfully they did not use very long and only use it for the next one and that was it. It will appeal more to girls than boys.

talks about negative self image

This movie suggests that there might be a reason to not like the way you look. for our confident 3yo, that's just a concept i didn't want to introduce to her.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Fans of the VeggieTales series will appreciate that this movie focuses on girls, as opposed to the other more male-centered features. The focus on concepts of beauty and worth provide a message that swings to the tune of God loving all of "His creations."

Infusing fairy tales with a religious theme is a clever concept, which Christian viewers will appreciate. Though the idea of valuing inner beauty is a refreshing theme, non-religious viewers might find the references to God a bit heavy-handed. But the light-hearted rhymes and clever jokes make this movie fun for fans of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty -- plus the Seven Dwarfs, characterized by seven bouncing peas -- sure are adorable!
