Have you ever seen a movie about rubber bands in a band? What? You haven’t? Haha, loser!
BANDS ON THE RUN is about a group of those rubber band bracelets who are friends.
The five novelty rubber bands find themselves deserted after accidentally falling off the back of a delivery truck.
They seem lost until Edison, the brainy light bulb shaped band, blurts out a bright idea – “Follow that truck!” and, together Edison, Roxie (rock star), Daisy (flower), Ray (TV) and Amelia (airplane) – band together to make their way to the toy store and ultimately onto the wrists of happy children!
As an exclusive bonus, each DVD also includes ten limited edition bands featuring the loveable characters from the movie – a $5 value! Additionally, there are animated storyboards and the “Making of” featurette.
We have a few VeggieTales DVD’s, and I have to say that they seem kind of redundant to me sometimes. I admit that I don’t pay close attention to plots, but songs get recycled a lot.
Finally, there is something new, although it does involve old favorite VeggieTales songs.
Veggie Tales: Live! Sing Yourself Silly is the first Veggie Tales LIVE DVD!
Veggie Tales: Live! Sing Yourself Silly showcases 18 of the most classic and popular VeggieTales songs performed live on stage including “His Cheeseburger,” “Love My Lips!,” “The Hairbrush Song,” plus a few hits from the 80’s that both parents and kids will enjoy.
As a bonus feature, you get to peek behind the curtain on “Larry’s Backstage Pass.”
