Although taken from an old bedtime story, the movie leaves the original conceit about a young chicken basically crying wolf in the dirt and amps up the storyline with a V-8 engine on steroids.

title: Veggie Tales: Sheerluck Holmes And The Golden Ruler function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Big Idea MPAA rating: NR Starring: Phil Vischer DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler” is a return to form of sorts for the VeggieTales gang. After a few lackluster releases, this new pair of stories – which also includes “The Asparagus of La Mancha" -- may be less ambitious than the previous “Lord of the Beans” DVD, but it’s a much more satisfying effort.

In the early 1950s, 11-year-old Satsuki and four-year-old Mei have moved with their father to a new house in the countryside, close to the hospital where their mother is recovering from tuberculosis. Mr Kusakabe is a teacher at a university in Tokyo and, while he commutes to work, Mei is looked after by Granny, the grandmother of a neighboring family. In the days leading up to summer holidays, Mei and Satsuki explore their new home and discover their house is "haunted" by tiny soot spirits who, according to Granny, spread ash and dust in old houses. Then Mei discovers the nest of a local forest spirits who lives in a giant camphor tree nearby. She calls them "Totoro" (which is a mispronunciation of "tororu," the Japanese word for troll), after an illustration in her "Three Billy Goats Gruff" picture book. The giant Totoro is a huge fuzzy creature like a cross between a ...

Unfortunately, it also seems to be one of his most misunderstood by Western audiences.

She’s uptown; he’s downtown. It’s one of those mixes that’s become a perennial favorite. That same story conceit made “Casablanca” spin for Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in 1942, then again in the 1980s for Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd in “Moonlighting.” An avid pop culture fan doesn’t have to travel far in any given media (movies, TV, ...
