It’s a Meaningful Life from Big Idea {DVD review}

About The Movie…

It was the biggest football game of his life and Stewart (Larry the Cucumber) had a chance to win it all. Injured in one bad play, his hopes of playing in the Salad Bowl – and living a life of fame and fortune – are dashed forever. Years later, silly-but-sweet Stewart loves his family, friends and job at the toy train factory, but still wonders “what if” things had been different. When he meets a mysterious train conductor who can turn back time, Stewart gets a chance to have the life he always wanted. Will he finally find all he’s been looking for? And what does this mean for those he loves most? Find out in this story of wonder that’s a lesson in being content.

Our Thoughts…

I have four sisters ranging in ages 27 to 4 year old. We grew up in a christian home so it’s no surprise that the Veggie Tale movies and music Cd’s were constantly watched, listened to,  and enjoyed in my family. Veggie Tales offers stories that teach character and morals in shaping the lives of children and adults alike.

I was really excited when I was given the opportunity to review Big Idea’s latest Veggie Tale movie “It’s a Meaningful Life”. This movie is perfect for the holiday season! If you know anything about the Veggie Tale movies is that they like to play off other movies and well know stories a bit and this one is  a combination of It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Carol, and Polar Express. If you enjoyed any of those movies, you’ll be sure to love how they are incorporated into this new tale that teaches the importance of being content with what you have.

Along with the movie, this DVD offers many great bonus features such as a new silly song called Goodnight Junior, Audio Commentary, Meant to Be music video and behind the scenes look into the song by christian artist Stephen Curtis Chapman, and more!

Overall this is a great movie and I encourage you to pick it up to enjoy with your family this Holiday Season! And while you are at it, check out the trailer of this film below!
