Don't miss the animated VeggieTales short "Going Up." It follows the slapstick adventures of the Three Veggie Stooges as they try to deliver a very grand piano to a mansion on the top of a very big hill! Also, Larry sings "School House Polka," a funatically phonetical silly song with Larry! Running time: Approximately 50 minutes.

Ben UmnusWisconsinAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5July 7, 2011Ben UmnusWisconsinAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I thought this was an odd-sounding title for a movie lol. Sumos and the opera don't really sound like something which go together that well, it reminds me of a funny card combo for Apples To Apples, lol; although they might have them in Japanese operas for all I know. Nevertheless I usually like what VeggieTales has to offer and wanted to watch this as I was donating some plasma. If the idea of sumos singing sounds strange to you, don't worry that isn't the entire film I assure you :P. This VeggieTales DVD consisted of three featurettes.
In Sumo of the Opera, there were three featurettes. The first was a somewhat silent movie about three workers who are trying to get a piano up a hill. The second is the story of Saint Patrick and why Saint Patrick's Day was originally founded; by the way it has nothing to do with alcohol! The main and final, story is about a sumo wrestler called The Italian Scallion who has to fight the champion Apollo for a shot at the title and a bicycle.
I thought it was kind of cute the three workers in the first featurette resembled the Three Stooges. I also thought the silly polka song they had before the story of Saint Patrick was pretty funny. The Saint Patrick story was quite educational, I didn't know much about him and thought that was actually the best part of this DVD. Even though I liked the Saint Patrick tale best, I did like the Sumo tale too :). The scriptural passage they had featured for this presentation was great, although most of the translations I read used the word "endurance" instead of the word Perseverance; appropriate still since you can't persevere without having endurance right? Overall not a bad film, although the Rocky puns were a bit cheesy, the message and entertainment were still top notch.
