Merry Christmas everyone!

For my review for Christmas, I've decided to tackle on 'Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger' starring David Tennant.

I absolutely enjoyed watching this film which dad bought before Christmas. Because of my being a fan of 'Doctor Who', my dad knew I would like to watch this with David Tennant since he's well known for playing the Tenth Doctor from the new series. And it certainly has been a thrill of a ride. Some of the film's pretty outrageously funny and sometimes a bit rude for my tastes, but I couldn't help enjoy it. I hadn't seen the first film with Martin Freeman, but I don't think you need to watch that first before this as it's a pretty stand-alone Christmas film anyway.

David Tennant is wonderful in this. David plays the part of a young school teacher named Frederick Peterson, who's just moved into a new house with his wife Sarah (played by Joanna Page). Mr Peterson is to be the new teacher of St Bernadette's primary school in Conventry of the class under the influence of class room assistant Mr Poppy (Marc Wooton). Peterson becomes anxious as it's his first day and is rather taken back and shocked with the child-like and deranged attitude of Mr Poppy who makes life worse for him when taking charge of the kids. It gets even worse when Mr Poppy tries to persuade Peterson on a trip to Wales for a national song competition called 'Song for Christmas' which Mr Poppy and the children want to be a part of.

I found it extremely funny when David who plays Peterson gets annoyed with Mr Poppy especially during the auditions for babies playing the baby Jesus in the song competition and him banging his head on the table. He has a rant about it when he gets back home to his wife before his father shows up.

Just seen Nativity 2 - Danger in a Manger and it was every bit as good as its predecessor. The laughs come thick and fast with the same touch of pathos and emotion that makes it a real feel good movie. David Tennant is wonderful in role of the long suffering Mr Peterson and all the children are real stars. Go and see it or buy it when it comes out on DVD.

I have to say that I was very disappointed with this film. Nativity was funny, heart warming, and had a good story line. This film which seemed desperate to cash in on the success of the first one fails in so many ways. Dominated by the utterly annoying and completely unbelievable character of Mr Poppy, I found the plot to be lackluster and charmless. I felt embarrassed for David Tennant and Pam Ferris who are great actors, in what felt like a slap happy attempt at at film. I hope very much that there is no further sequel to this film. It was dreadful and I would not give it even one star if that option were available.

We absolutely loved Nativity and thus were extremely excited to watch Nativity 2.
Unfortunately other than having many of the original cast, Nativity 2 has completely lost all of the charm of the original. The plot- well there isn't really one worth mentioning but needless to say there are more holes than swiss cheese. The acting is likewise cheesy.
The songs are not as catchy and our children complained they could not hear the words to some of the numbers.
Really a poor effort.

Loved the first one, but this was genuinely one of the worst films I have seen all year (if not longer). A real shame and painful to watch at times. Wanted to turn it off after 30 minutes, but was intrigued if it would get better. It didn't!

OK, I'm a sucker for a Christmas film & will watch almost anything at least once, just so I can tick it off my Christmas movie list. However, this film really is one of the worst movies I've ever see & is such a massive disapointment having really enjoyed the original Nativity with Martin Freeman (5/5 stars) Nativity! [DVD]. There seems to have been very little thought to story plot or how the characters interact with each other. David Tennants characters are both (twins) under used & to much focus is placed on the Mr.Poppy (Marc Wootton). The camera work is very patchy at best and leaps from looking movie quality to 8mm home movie, in fact the whole thing looks very low budget. The songs are incomplete and seem only to be there to fill screen time as does the entire School trip to Wales itself which just drags on & on & on... to the point that in the end I really didn't care if anyone ever found them again (a good 30mins spent walking around fields (again, did they run out of budget! i.e. cheap set?). For the life of me I can't believe this was written & directed by the same person as the original Nativity (Debbie Isitt, if you're reading this review then your St., Bernadettes School report card reads 'must try harder').
