As long time Veggie Tale fans and the other creations of Phil Vischer it is no surprise that we love the movie Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 which just released on DVD this week. We were fortunate to receive an advanced peek at the film, and the kids couldn't be more thrilled.
What could possibly go wrong?
Buck Denver is "just" a phone operator at a call center when he's convinced that he isn't doing BIG enough things for God. The poster in his cubicle tells him so. Completely self-driven he sets out on a mission to Sector 9 with his co-workers; never mind that he's never actually piloted a ship in space before. On his journey to this "uninhabited" planet, Buck learns a valuable lesson about helping others and what exactly it means to follow God and obey the rule of love.
The kids and I previewed the movie together, and they all enjoyed it very much. As soon as the film ended both the four and five year old shouted, "Watch it again! Watch it again!" The ten year old enjoyed it as well. She said, "That was a good movie." As a parent, I appreciate the lesson and the platform it provides me for talking with my children about what it means to obey the rule of love.
