  • This Northern Ireland-set fable steals adroitly from all kinds of classic Christmas-themed movies - a bit of Miracle on 34th Street, a dash of Nativity!, a big dollop of It's a Wonderful Life, and so on.

  • This dismal film is enough to put a dampener on your Christmas before it's even started.

  • With the exception of one or two performances from its junior cast, this is awful, a feeble reworking of Local Hero weighed down with ersatz sentiment, clunking parallels with the Nativity story and a charmless script.

  • Against all odds, the film, though not short on Yuletide schmaltz, is pretty good, and a huge improvement on such 'family fare' as the dread Nativity franchise.

  • Star-studded Irish holiday movie is cliched but sweet.
