If you're tired of going to "kid friendly" movies, only to find the movie isn't really that "kid friendly"....in the words of Bob the Tomato: "Have we got a show for you!"
I took the kiddos to see the newest Veggie flick yesterday. There are only a limited number of theaters showing it. We had to squeeze in a matinee, and were fortunate to see the last showing of it. What a treat!
There is plenty of pirate action, adventure, damsel in distress, etc. Many life lessons. And, of course, the usual Veggie humor we have all come to know and love.
The best lesson of the movie is that the "king" gives us everything we need for the adventure. The characters never used the word "God" or quoted Scripture. But the message was clear: God gives us all everything we need for this adventure we call life.
Nary an objectionable element. Zilch. Nothing. Nada. All good, clean fun. The pirates even drink root beer! The swashbuckling is tame and silly. The monsters, well, let's just say they aren't always all they appear to be.
Definitely a thumbs-up from this movie goer!
My only regret? Our popcorn was gone before the movie even began!
