A lovely little movie

"Jennifer is coming. And she's bringing everyone from her agency."

Hollywood enjoys using the festive season as an excuse to fill multiplexes with Christmas-themed garbage, leading to dreck like Four Christmases, Surviving Christmas, Christmas with the Kranks, and too many more to list. It's rather pleasant, then, to witness a film like 2009's Nativity!, a low-budget British export ... read more

A bad film much worse than I expected

More than two years ago, 'Nativity 2' was released. I ended up seeing it and finding it a bad movie with pretty squeamish inappropriate humour for kids. From recording 'Nativity', I expected something pretty average!

'Nativity' is a bad film much worse than I expected it to be! The film focuses on a teacher Paul Maddens (Martin Freeman) who hates Christmas and his ex-girlfriend Jenn... read more

"Martin Freeman plays Paul Maddens a failed actor now an underachieving primary school teacher. His former girlfriend left him some years ago and made it big in Hollywood. Now Paul has been put in charge to direct the Nativity play and vies to outdo a rival school whose head teacher he knew at University and rather envies. Paul lies that Hollywood casting agent will come to see the Nativity play which escalates out of control I genuinely wanted to like this British Christmas comedy movie but co"
