Let's face it, ''Christian entertainment'' too often means lame, sugarcoated propaganda. Thank Whomever, then, for the ''Veggie-Tales'' series, which marshals far more sass and intelligence in the service of familiar Bible stories than any normal cynic would expect from talking computer-generated produce. In Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie, the video regulars' first theatrical release, the story of Jonah is faithfully retold with witty brio by a gang of do-nothing pirates in a lonely seafood restaurant. They even work in an ''ALF'' joke -- a miracle in itself.
