Product Description

Seasonal, semi-improvised British comedy starring Martin Freeman and Ashley Jensen. Shabby, under-achieving primary school teacher Mr Maddens (Freeman) works at a school that competes annually with a local private school for the best production of the Christmas nativity play. Tired of always playing second fiddle to his arch rival, Gordon Shakespeare (Jason Watkins), Maddens idly concocts a white lie centred around his ex-girlfriend, Hollywood producer Jennifer (Jensen), in which he boasts that she is coming to see his play with a view to turning it into a film. What he omits to mention is that he and she have not spoken to one another for years. Now, with the expectations and burning ambitions of parents and pupils running high, can he possibly turn his elaborate fiction into reality in time to make everyone's Christmas wishes come true?

4.0 out of 5 stars HEARTFELT FESTIVE FUN 9 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
Martin Freeman is his usual loaveable self and the kids are adorable and hilarious in equal measure. Is it cheesy? Yes but what else do you want from a Christmas film?! Pure entertaining, emotive Christmas fun for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic feel-good film! 4 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I actually saw this a week after Christmas and immediately wanted to watch it again the next day! For that reason I can't wait for this to be released.
There are not many British Christmas films but this is the best I've seen. Even better than Love, Actually.
The characters are so warm you'll forgive any situations that seem implausible. The children are not your usual stage-school kids and that is the key to the film's success. They are totally natural and lovable!
Martin Freeman plays his usual persona and very good he is too. Standouts for me were Pam Ferris and Ashley Jensen. Initially I wasn't sure about the character of teaching assistant Mr Poppy but his child-like enthusiasm won me over. Alan Carr was brilliant too!

I'm going to buy this and save it to watch on Christmas Eve. This would make a great Christmas present for those that like laughing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tale as old as time... 6 Jan 2012
By Chloe S "Chick Lit Chloe" TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Primary school teacher Paul Madddens has had enough. One of his old ex-friends always manages to trump him in the annual Nativity play, garnering 5 star reviews in the local paper while Paul's school barely manages to get out of the minus stars. So when the headteacher puts Paul in charge of this year's Nativity play, he isn't happy and invents a small white lie to make out it's going to be amazing - that his ex-girlfriend, now a Hollywood producer is going to come over and watch it along with some of her colleagues. This isn't true but when enthusiastic classroom assistant Mr Poppy hears it, he tells the children and all hell breaks loose. Mr Poppy and the kids are determined to put on the best Nativity play the town has ever seen. Sure enough, even Mr Maddens manages to get up a bit of excitement for it but for one problem... how is he going to break it to everyone that Hollywood isn't coming after all?

This film is everything Christmas with children should be about - fun, laughter, and excessive practicing for the annual school nativity play. As someone who works in a school with a foundation stage class, I could totally relate to a lot of what was going on between the adults at school, but also the fun of the children they were teaching too. Anyone who works in a school will really relate to this, and anyone who has kids won't be able to resist going "awwwww!" at every cute thing the talented child cast in this film manage to do. Perhaps I loved it that bit more than my parents because I'm in that environment all day, every day but I just cannot tell you how much I loved this film, I really can't! The child cast are phenomenal, they are only young yet deliver lines, sing songs and deal with choreography like seasoned professionals, and they are a joy to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars My family and I love this xmas treat 11 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
My family and I saw this gem last year when it came out. My 3 boys 6 - 11 laughed so much. They love Mr Poppy and the Nativity concert. It's a tear jerker for the adults too. So really something that all the family can watch and laugh along with together. This will keep us entertained for years to come and the boys want to see more Mr Poppy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Christmas movies around 24 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I seen this when it was released at the cinema with my eldest child and we both loved it. We raved about it to my husband and youngest child who had been doing something else that day and we had to wait a year for the DVD release to be able to see it again and for them to see it. Its fun, heart warming and will have you singing the soundtrack for weeks to come. Thoroughly enjoyable movie that you (and the kids!) will want to watch again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Childrens TV, also good for Adults who like Martin Freeman's...
Enjoyed the DVD, especially as I like Martin Freeman's sense of humour! The film involved a lot of improvisation, and he has a great innovative imagination.
