Very funny and classy but short a silly song.

  • Aug 9, 2001
A great and comical adaption of the book of Esther. Esther risks herself for her people, risking THE ISLE OF EVERLASTING TICKELING! There are a ton of great gags which I won't spoil here. (The intro about the sandwitch is a classic.) The only reason this one doesn't rank as 5 stars is the absence of silly songs with Larry. The quality of the production and the graphics make up for it but my wife and I both missed it. (You don't think we'dd let our kids have all the fun alone do you?) Buy them and enjoy!

. . .and altogether wonderful Veggie Tale.I have to confess, this is my very favorite of all the Veggie Tales videos I've ever seen. It was not the huge success that some of the others have been, and I can understand why. No "Silly Songs", no opening segment with Larry and Bob, etc. (Though I loved the opening sequence showing the children of Veggie Tales employees). Instead, this particular Veggie Tale tells a straigtforward Bible story, one especially loved by Christians and Jews alike, namely, …

About this movie


A lonely trumpet solo and a narrator sporting a Jersey accent set a somewhat ominous,Godfather-esque stage for this stylish, 35-minute lesson about courage. But fear not: it's a VeggieTales story after all, and it soon kicks into action. Based on the Bible story of Esther, "just an ordinary girl" who becomes queen of Persia, this animated retelling tosses in the usual cup of Veggie humor to lighten the flavor of its very serious message. Esther, a young green onion, cannot understand why she has been chosen to wed King Xerxes (played by the humble pickle, Mr. Nezzer). Her cousin Mordecai (Pa Grape) assures her that God must have a reason; she soon discovers that her entire family's fate rests upon her ability to show courage under pressure. While this particular tale drops many of the comical sing-along aspects of other favorite VeggieTales (such asDave and the Giant PickleandWhere Is God When I'm S-Scared), its strength comes from its story line; its rich, inspired artwork; and its impressive musical score. The creative team at Big Idea continues to produce quality Christian videos for the entire family. One quibble: there's no "Silly Songs with Larry" segment.--Liane Thomas
