The title is the funniest thing about this cynical seasonal cash-in.
Even fans of the series are likely to deem this dopey "Donkey" a step down, with a surprising streak of unseasonal mean-spiritedness.
It's a feature that's got its heart in the right place and it's easy to see it scoring a direct hit with the little 'uns. For adults, however, it's much more likely to be a case of Dude, Where's My Will to Live?
There are so many plot holes in this silly British holiday sequel that the script hardly seems to exist at all.
I can't speak for the kids at whom it is aimed, but as an adult I'd rather stay in and watch a CBBC Chuckle Brothers marathon.
A manic, mindless festive farrago that displays a casual regard for logic, stops every second for a bit of a song or dance and maintains an idiotic grin on its face through an interminable two hours.
There have been many recent films based around memory loss, but few that most adults will want to forget as quickly as Nativity 3.
The film recycles the same formula of thwarted romance rescued by endearingly amateurish song-and-dance routines.
It's more a case of dude, where are the laughs as the hit British comedy series returns for a third, unwelcome installment.
How do I go about awarding the square root of negative one as a star rating? Is it just "i"? Or is there a special graphic?
This is one of those British family comedies that make you want to soil the Union flag with your own faeces in the cinema foyer before setting fire to it.
This is desperately poor stuff, juvenile in the extreme, thoroughly unfunny, and pitched squarely at younger kids. However, even they will probably find it too long and convoluted.
