Dove Review

This fun movie begins with a celebration of Billboy Baggypants’ birthday, complete with fireworks. He has a unique bean. Only four beans have a unique power. However, a fifth bean could give a person everything. That bean is the one Billboy Baggypants has. From good clothes to an espresso machine, he gets everything he ever wanted. His friend Randalf questions him, and Billboy says the bean has caused him to search for something. Billboy leaves everything, including the bean, to his young nephew, Toto Baggypants. Randalf explains to Toto that every gift is given for a reason. We can’t choose which ones we get, only what we do with them. Toto doesn’t want the bean, but he does want to know why he was given it.

Randalf suggests they head to the forest to ask the Raspberry Elders about the bean, and Randalf enlists some of his friends to take the journey with them. Once they arrive, the Elders put them in captivity, because they mocked them. This cute animated movie teaches lots of lessons on using your gifts the way God intended. You will enjoy the “Silly Songs for Elves,” too. “Veggie Tales: Lord of the Beans” receives the Dove Faith Friendly Seal for the entire family to enjoy!
