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.

Unfortunately, Nativity 2 was nowhere near as good as the first film. In the original, the harassed class teacher has to come up with a Christmas concert. The school pulls together, the Head is behind him, and the slapstick is mostly caused by his rivalry with a snooty private school nearby. There's a plot, there's development, there's a happy (if schmalzy) ending.

So, Nativity 2: 'Danger in the Manger', starring David Tennant, would be perfect Christmas viewing - right?

Alas, no.

In this film Tennant plays Mr Peterson the new class teacher. The plot is much more unlikely - and, at times, decidedly worrying. Mr Poppy (Mark Wootton), the irritatingly juvenile classroom assistant, is still around, and this time has been urging the children to audition for a national singing competition in Wales. The school Head has vetoed it, but this does not stop him from egging the children on, and writing a song for them…

The story then gets sillier (and more worrying still) when the class, unauthorised by the Head, and unknown to their parents, set off for the competition in an extremely odd bus driven by Mr Poppy, with Mr Peterson kidnapped as he tries to stop them… and panicking about his wife, who might give birth at any moment.

We were getting annoyed and irritated by the first hour or so of this film, which was not humorous and had far too much of Mr Poppy. Then we become rather confused when the scene kept switching from the competition - already getting started, in the evening - to the class, staggering across rough ground, up steep hills, down ropes, accompanied by a baby and a donkey… in broad daylight. Without any food or drink, as far as we could see, wearing their costumes, but not getting dirty.

But we kept watching.

I'm TheMr42 and I don't usually write reviews but for this I had to.

Right. Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger.....

Wow it was bad and I mean bad with a big B. I'm just glad that I didn't pay money for it specifically (Amazon Prime) or I'd have demanded a refund with a flying donkey's weight in interest. There are two reasons that this film has one star and those reasons were David Tennant and the fact that I don't think I can actually give the film no stars.... can I? Please?
I like films but I like ripping into bad films even more. So I'll have a stab (if only it were literal) at this one.

[SPOILER HEAVY FROM HERE IN!]

TheMr42 Reviews: Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger

Mr Poppy. You strange, deranged, confused explosion of idiocy, childishness and pure stupidity given human form. What the heck is wrong with him anyway? It's like Mr Peterson says, he might actually be certifiably insane! In the original Nativity Mr Poppy was over the top, he was an exaggerated manchild. In Nativity 2. He's a teacher attacking, class kidnapping, baby stealing, thieving criminal who steal nearly £100 from a man he's abducted and tied up, has said man's only link to his PREGNANT WIFE thrown out of a moving bus which he later drives into a river (good job the school just happened to have spent the money they couldn't spare to attend A Song For Christmas on a London Duck Bus, budgeting am I right?), steals a farmers Donkey, strands a group of children in the Welsh Highlands in winter before demanding they abseil from a sheer cliff-face.
This man should be locked away in a padded cell, dropped on his head as a child or not, daddy issues or not, he's two steps away from becoming a serious child killer, even if it is by accident!

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 :)
