Adorable misfits on zany Xmas adventure; some potty humor.

It might actually be funnier if you haven't seen the first film, but I'm not in a position to say--only that it's disappointingly similar to the original, and suffers from the comparison.

After 2009's inane comedy Nativity, no one was clamouring for a sequel, but at least this one tips the scales into sublime silliness.

The only laughs come from the film's title and Jessica Hynes as a ridiculously pretentious TV hostess.

How often, on the big screen, will your nippers ever be able to watch fellow children in familiar blue uniforms just being allowed to be themselves?

The earlier, fairly crummy picture now seems like FW Murnau's Sunrise when set beside the blitzkrieg of awfulness that is Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!

Slack and savvy in equal measure, and a guaranteed hit.

Offers little in the way of festive fun.

The first Nativity was a corny, amateurish shambles, but it had that hard-to-define quality of likeability. Its sequel has none.

Overlong and idiotic it raises a few chuckles thanks to the game cast.

Silly, goofy and pretty groanworthy. But it is unpretentious and is, after all, aimed at very young children.

Danger in the Manger! never has its heart anywhere other than in the right place ...

Despite some decent songs and a supporting cast full of likeable scene-stealing moppets, this remains a dismal, poorly structured comedy sequel that's depressingly low on laughs.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

Deliberately or otherwise, this sequel pushes the amateurish angle much harder, and seems to wear its abject lousiness as a badge of honour.

If you're over ten, you probably won't get it.

'Nativity 2' offers roughly as many laughs as the Queen's speech.

As charity is a big part of Christmas, I'll say the improvised comedy is a bit patchy. But as with the original, the movie comes into its own during the big finale.

The kids have their moments, Tennant is game but Wootton's puppy-dog persona is just about ready to be put down.

Even this charming cast struggle to bring life to an overlong story that has all the sizzle of leftover turkey.
