We love VeggieTales at our house, but the timing of the newest movie is perfect for our house. Charlie has been on a space-obsessed phase lately. We sat down as a family to join Captain Cuke (Larry the Cucumber) and his loyal first officer, Mr. Spork (Bob the Tomato), as they embarked on an out of this world adventure to save the galaxy from a space pirate. Along the way, the entire Veggie crew learns a valuable lesson about sharing: if you have enough to spare, you have enough to share!
Why I love it:
I love that I can pop in a VeggieTales dvd for Charlie and know that he’s getting a wholesome message while being entertained.
I love that they stress Bible principles that we find so very important, yet extremely rare these days in main-stream media.
I love the songs that incorporate the message of sharing. You’ll find yourself singing them long after the movie is over. For a child, it’s a great way to reminding them of the message.
I love there’s a bit of humor and references in the movie that only mom and dad will get. Don’t worry- it’s definitely clean humor, but we love the added touch.
There are discussion point in the Bonus features of the dvd that allow you to really talk about it if you're unsure how to address something.

We’ve watched this several times already and I’m sure the new “Space Cucumber movie” will be added into our favorites rotation!
