Not the best for the Easter message, but a good cartoon show

I love all veggietales, some are better than others. I am not in love with this Easter one, I like the prior Easter for the message. But my 4 year old son LOVES this show! He loves the huge robot bunny & watches it over and over again laughing out loud.

Is It Any Good?

In usual entertaining VeggieTales fashion, 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE EASTER combines upbeat musical numbers and a simple story with positive messages and Christian values. And there's always some pop culture parodies for the grown-ups -- in this case, a reality TV show called America's Got British Judges and a visit to a Broadway-style musical. And Melinda Doolittle, a talented American Idol finalist, lends a thrilling gospel sound to celebrate an Easter beyond egg hunts and chocolate bunnies.

While all VeggieTales movies include faith-oriented content, in this instance, the film contains frequent and specific biblical messages to encourage and strengthen the faith of the very young. Though some viewers may disagree when a young theater fan who believes that "theater has the power to give people a vision of something bigger and more important in life" is shown the error of her ways and learns that what is truly important is serving others, Jesus, and the church.
