In Sony Pictures Animation's THE STAR, a small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told - the first Christmas.

User Review


Rating: 1/10

It was a VeggieTales movie minus the veggie tales and stuffed fulled of misinformation, sappy morals, and a sleep-inducing soundtrack.

The entire plot revolves around the "first Christmas" which of course involved talking animals, a musical number and a boring plot about finding a place for the "virgin" Mary to deliver her baby.

Likely worth it when it finds it's way to the bottom of the 3$ bin at Walmart.
