Y’all already know that I love Veggie Tales. It’s one of the few kids shows that I don’t mind watching with Bryson. Each movie always includes a message that I can use and need in my life. Recently, the hubs was working late, so it was just the kids & I at night. We received the newest Veggie Tales movie a few weeks ago and finally had the chance to watch it. Bryson, Bella, & I huddled up on the couch with some popcorn, of course, and watched “Twas the Night Before Easter.” Bryson said the popcorn was “yuck” and spit it back into the bowl I was eating out of, by the way.
It’s Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is hunting for a way to help others. On a tip that the old town theater will be shut down, Marlee cooks up a plan to save the stage and make a difference through the power of musical theater. With a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit – Up With Bunnies is hatched! There’s only one thing missing the star of the show! When news spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church s Easter service, Marlee gets worried. Concerned about the competition, she schemes to steal the starlet for her own pageant! But when things go haywire, will it be curtains for Marlee s dreams or will she discover the true meaning of Easter and what helping others is really all about? Find out in this hare raising adventure!
We’ve watched this movie more times than I can count. Bryson asks for “Veggie Tales Easter bunny!” and most of the time, I happily oblige. As with all Veggie Tales movies, you don’t have to worry about what your child is going to see. You know it is going to be family friendly and include a special message. While I enjoy the movie, I have to admit that I also love the fact that Bryson stays engaged. He will watch this movie in it’s entirety and that my friends, is almost unheard of for him. So, I guess you could say this movie is a blessing to me too and not just because of the message it brings. I definitely recommend this movie and any other Veggie Tales movie for that matter. I think we’ll start a new Easter tradition of gathering around and watching this movie together as a family.
We received a copy of “Twas the Night Before Easter” to assist with this review, but no other compensation was provided. All opinions remain my own, as always.
