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 took my 12 year old daughter to see this film and we both really enjoyed it.

The story is fun, well thought out and the filming and scenery in certain shots is beautiful.

Credit has to go to the children who acted very well indeed, showing great comic timing beyond their years.

It is great to see David Tennant in a different role (or roles to be precise). He ends up as the stooge to the class Assistant and I have to say, the two complement each other very nicely.

There is also a lovely nod to the Christmas story at the end.

And finally...it's all British!

Nativity 1 was excellent - Nativity 2 was a complete waste of money- Nothing to commend it at all. Stupid story line

I'm really sorry and I'm not forcing you share my opinions but this film is hardly created to be intellectually challenging and believable! Of course it's cheesy but it (along with the first film) is a cheery wonderful lighthearted christmas film that i would happily watch over and over. David Tennant is lovable as usual and Mr Poppy is as dangerous and reckless as every but children love this film. I am 15 and I smiled throughout the film. So did my Mum, my little sister, and everyone else I know who has seen it. Of course ir's no "Life of Pi" or "Les Miserables" but the cheesy cuteness and crazy plot line is exactly what I want from a christmas film.

I loved it and I'm not going to hesitate to buy this DVD :)

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.
