Looking for a way to teach your child about Biblical forgiveness? Then VeggieTales: Celery Night Fever is for you.
About the movie: Laura Carrot, the main character, determined to save the city park from being turned into a parking lot by getting her grandfather (Larry the Cucumber) to stage a reunion concert with the disco band he headlined forty years ago. The problem? None of those guys are talking to each other, all of them are holding unforgiveness in their heart for how the band fell apart all those years ago. In addition, Laura’s efforts to save the park may also ruin her friendship with Junior Asparagus.
My Review: I love movie night. I particularly love movies that teach a lesson and help the viewers build their faith in the Lord. The Veggietales: Celery Night Fever does just that. This movie is designed to reinforce the Biblical principle of forgiveness found in Ephesians 4:32. In order to accomplish this goal, it shows how unforgiveness can threaten a child’s friendship and how unforgiveness affects adult relationships years down the line.
While the 70s theme may go over most children’s heads, parents who remember rocking out in the 70s will have a chance to share a part of their past with their children. In addition, this movie has two parallel stories of forgiveness that can lead additional sharing and discussing between parent and child.
My only complaint is the link for downloads included in the DVD does not work. I was eventually able to find coloring pages to go along with the DVD on the VeggieTales website.
