Quickie DVD Review: "VeggieTales: Larry-Boy and the Bad Apple"

Rated: G (Canada)
Starring: Phil Vischer, Mike Nawrocki, Cydney Trent, and Cynthia West
Released: July 29, 2006 (DVD)
Synopsis: Larry-Boy is back! This time, it's up to him to save Bumblyburg from Bad Apple, a villainess who possesses a deadly weapon: temptation! When the city's mayor, as well as their most trusted reporter, succumb to the Bad Apple's ways, it's up to Larry-Boy and his butler Alfred (Archibald Asparagus) to put a stop to her dastardly plans to overtake the city...if they can keep from falling into temptation themselves! Will they be victorious against the evil Bad Apple?

My Review: The animation in this Veggie episode is fabulous; I particularly enjoyed the effects in the virtual video game world.  Also, as usual for this series, there's a moral included, which is one I really needed to hear, and one from which many adults could stand to learn.  The Bad Apple makes a great villain, and there were also plenty of dashes of humor and fun.  However, the lack of a Silly Song was a bit disappointing, though the performance by "rock band" Shux was great.  All in all, this was a fun one.

Content Concerns:
  • Sex: None. 5/5
  • Nudity: None. 5/5
  • Language: None. 5/5
  • Violence: Mild slapstick; nothing more. 4/5
  • Drugs: None. 5/5
  • Frightening/Intense Scenes: The Bad Apple is mildly scary. 4/5
  • Other: Larry belches in one scene. 4/5
Score: 4/5
