This is an uncommon, but nevertheless famous Christmas movie. I love Christmas movies so long as they actually have a Christmas element contained within and unfortunately that is harder to find in recent years… Now normally I am not a fan of revised movies, but The Little Drummer Boy is an idea which hasn’t been done very often and I usually like what I see from VeggieTales so I bought this and wanted to watch this for myself.
The Little Drummer Boy is about a young man who was alive during the time of the Roman Empire, more specifically around the time of Jesus’ birth. His home is burnt to the ground and he believes his parents are dead so he is filled with bitterness and unforgiveness. While playing his drum in the desert, the drummer’s life changes significantly as he meets people along the road…
I honestly haven’t seen the other Little Drummer Boy movie I’ve heard of, and I plan to watch that one sometime in the near future, but I liked the VeggieTales Rendition. I thought the Silly Song The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas was both hilarious and educational; in fact I’d like to try a few of those foods now lol. I liked the story it was something different and it was one which actually had a focus on Christ; which again is not a very common element nowadays unfortunately. I liked the song at the end of the film by Bebe and Cece Winans. This was funny and cute, and it looks like something kids/kids at heart would like to watch. I wasn’t bored and recommend this for people of all ages.
TCP Movie Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
