December 14, 2010
A warm, funny and irreverent Christmas movie that ought to become a holiday classic alongside films like 'Elf' and 'A Christmas Story.'

A plucky, well-meant enterprise reliant on its audience's festive goodwill.

Neither Jensen nor Freeman light up the film - that is left to the gap-toothed, wide-eyed, body-popping and very funny kids.

For all that's wrong with Nativity!, there's something apt and endearing about how this sketchy, second‑rate production pulls its socks up for the climax.

Nativity! is a light and painless watch that overcomes its flaws with some strong central performances and a genuine warmth that lifts it above the cynicism of many other festive cash-grabbers.

Sweet, funny, bags of charm: Outnumbered meets Britain's Got Talent, with added Christmas.

It's the pure, device-free performances of the talented cast of children that makes this a winner and that rare thing - a Christmas movie that actually captures a pocketful of its spirit.

The grown-ups are pretty much overshadowed by the youthful cast of the nativity play itself, who are so natural on camera that you can't help but smile.

So deliriously corny that I can imagine it becoming the unlikeliest hit of the year.

For a Christmas movie it's like waking up on Boxing Day and finding a toffee finger in your Quality Street tin.

Nativity! is sweet and it gets what makes children laugh. Plus there are some fantastic performances from the kids.
