GMGender: Male2 Stars Out Of 5I put it down againJuly 25, 2015GMGender: MaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I honestly must admit that I haven't even seen this film, but I grew up watching VeggieTales and loved them. When I picked up this dvd at the christian book store and saw that they had colored in Bob and Larry's eyes with green and blue instead of the original black, I was disappointed. It changed their whole appearance! Also the story description seemed like it was going to relegate Bob and Larry to minor characters and use guest stars instead, and I notice they are doing that more lately. The whole thing smacked of a very different VeggieTales from what I knew. I put it down again. Hopefully it is better than it looked...but by judging by some of the other reviews, that may not be the case.
Mrs Koehn1 Stars Out Of 52 Near Innuendos, Bossy Women? Say it's not so!May 17, 2015Mrs KoehnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1I can get past the giant orange slice ark, multiple windows in the ark, and all of the other creative license things they decided to do with this Veggie Tales. I can even get past the new look of the characters (though I really don't care for it at all). The redundancy of the new songs and all the reprisals drives me insane, but I can get over it, especially since the Shem character sings so well. What I cannot get past is the two near innuendos and bossy women.
In the beginning, Shem and his new bride return from their honeymoon and the other two daughters-in-laws of Noah come and whisk her away to tell them all about it. They could have left it at that and skipped the part where they say, "And don't spare the details!" That's a bit much for Veggies. At the end, Mrs. Noah says, "Go forth and multiply!" and they should have stopped there. Shem replies, "I don't know what that means...." His wife says, "I'll explain it to you later." Does anyone else have inquisitive children who will want explanations?
As to the bossy women, whatever on the girl power. I think it's excessive, but their attitudes are not what I want my impressionable daughter picking up. The worst part of that to me is when Shem's climbing off of the boat since he doesn't believe it's going to rain. The family is all there begging him to come back on as the first drops fall. He is still stubbornly refusing when his wife gets a very authoritative voice and says, "Shem. Get back on the boat." He snaps to attention and says in a very subdued and obedient voice, "Okay." That's not how I want my daughters growing up to think they can be toward their husbands.
In short, I am going to have to start previewing by rental or library or waiting for someone to YouTube new Veggies. If this persists, we just won't be buying anymore Veggie products. That's really too bad, because they have had such great lessons and Biblical truths my children have picked up. I am just proceeding with caution from here out.
