I always love seeing a new Bible-based DVD series for the
kids. So, when Thomas Nelson offered Adventures in
Booga Booga Land, I gladly accepted.
And, doesn't it look great?
And, doesn't it sound great?
"Based on the Parables of Jesus, join Marty the monkey and
Gerard the giraffe as they bungle their way through the paradise
of Booga Booga Land inadvertently learning lessons that Jesus
taught many years ago."
Well, first off, my boys (2 and 7) loved the DVD. The
two main characters, Marty and Gerard, were a huge
hit, and they loved the silly stories. On the other hand,
I thought the DVD was less than entertaining, and I totally
missed the Bible-based lessons. The important stuff
was just lost in all that silly!
I was really shocked at how little I enjoyed the movie.
After all, I still laugh at the VeggieTales movies we've
seen a million times. This series just doesn't even come
close, and I don't see myself buying another.
***I received this free DVD in exchange for my honest review. My opinion was not influenced in any manner.***
