Recently I had the opportunity to review Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever. It's always a pleasure for me to share my opinions and great finds with my readers, and this review is no different.
Once we popped the DVD in the television, it was like a family reunion coming to the big screen. The kids were excited to see all of their favorite Veggie Tales characters, and I was excited to see them watching a wholesome movie that promoted family values. Before long, the familiar Veggie Tales music began to play and it was history from there!
In Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever we learned that it is never too late to forgive. The Groovy Brothers band broke up 38 years ago when one of the members decided to go solo, and there were still hurt feelings as the former members entered their golden years. Now their grandchildren are coming together in an attempt to save Celery Park from land developer Bruce the Onion. As the Groovy Brothers try to put on a benefit to help save Celery Park, unresolved hurt feeling come to the surface and puts the concert in jeopardy. Laura and Junior had a falling out that ended badly as well and forgiveness was not in the plans.
As the Groovy Brothers were trying to get the benefit concert together, I couldn't help but the reflect back to my childhood movie days when the Blues Brothers were "getting the band back together". I really like the way that multiple generations were featured in this movie. I am a firm believer that children learn by example, and when the Groovy Brothers forgave each other they set the perfect example for Laura and Junior to follow. With all of the love in the air, even Bruce the Onion gave in and forgave the Groovy Brothers for a disagreement he had with them 38 years ago.
As Veggie Tales Celery Night Fever showed us tonight, it is never to late to forgive and make up. I recommend this movie to families young and not so young. The music was fun, the characters were awesome and the message was timeless.
