As with many kids' films, I've watched this probably 30 times start to finish. They all get old after a while, but this film is so well-done that I find myself admiring the work even when I swear I'm going to shoot myself if I have to watch it again.
Veggie Tales is fantastic at making biblical stories easy to understand, and the animation and adaptation of the story makes it easy for children of all ages to relate to them.
The music on this soundtrack is phenomenal. After the first time I watched this, I bought the CD to play in the car so I could sing along with the movie more quickly!
This was an outstanding piece of work - I hope to see new Veggie Tales movies in the near future!
Forgive me for stating the obvious... Oct 18, 2005
but this album is SUPERB! The movie was excellent, and the songs are great. The song that runs under the credits is undoubtably the best and truest song ever to come from the mouths of veggies!
a Fun-filled cd that should be in everyone's stereos Dec 23, 2003
This soundtrack is So awesome...i Love it. Each and every song is unique in its own way and it's amusing lyrics are fun to listen and sing along to. All the songs that can be found on this soundtrack is catchy and amazing. Relient K and the Newsboys add their own touch with their fun songs of "The Pirates who Don't Do Anything" and "In the Belly of the Whale". So make sure you get this soundtrack! I guarantee you will enjoy it...if not fall in love with it
You know you're hooked when... May 17, 2003
...when you let the kids listen while driving them to school, and then turning it up louder once they've left. "Pirates", "Billie Joe McGuffrey", and "The Credits Song" are great songs. While the movie score is missable, it doesn't detract from the rest of the album. Very catchy, but yet it doesn't get tiresome.
Fun, But Not Completely Singable Feb 26, 2003
Big Idea's first full length movie gets a complete CD all to itself. 7 of the tracks are instrumentals from the movie's score, but the other 12 are songs from the movie.
My biggest complaint is that we get a few half songs. "Bald Bunny" and "Steak and Shrimp" are really more pointless then normal, even for Big Ideas. However, these are off-set by the songs recorded by regular Christian artists.
"Second Chances," straight from the movie and sung by Anointed, is a fun toe taping song. Chris Rice provides all 12 verses for "Billy Joe McGuffrey." Relient K does a wonderful cover of "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything." I'll admit, it too me a couple listens to fully appreciate it, but I love it. Probably my favorite is "In the Belly of the Whale" by Newsboys. It makes me laugh so much.
Of course, there are songs recorded by the "veggies" on here as well. The best song related to the movie is "Jonah was a Prophet." And if you're looking for this movie's version of a silly song, skip to "Credits Song." I was laughing so hard when I first heard it, I had to pull my car to the side of the road.
I'm not usually a fan of soundtrack albums, but I'm certainly glad I bought this one. The songs I've highlighted make it more then worth while.
