Veggietales The Penniless Princess Review By Logan Strohl

It's not the best Veggietales video but The Penniless Princess still works well enough with a great story and a wonderful lesson in about how God is always there for you even in the bad times.

Great movie!

Great little movie! My 3-year-old daughter would watch it all day if she could!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Once again the VeggieTales folks have updated a classic with bright characters, wit, delightful music, and the standard fidelity to positive values and religious fundamentals. Sara Crewe and the entourage she meets in England -- which include some hilarious Frenchmen and an endearing Cockney-voiced servant girl -- make the messages in VEGGIETALES: THE PENNILESS PRINCESS go down easily. Girls especially will warm to this little princess.
