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

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

It hurts to remember.

November 22, 2012 | Rating: 1/5

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

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

Adorable misfits on zany Xmas adventure; some potty humor.

Audience Reviews for Nativity 2

Your enjoyment of this sequel will depend on how much you enjoyed the 2009 original. Apart from Freeman most of the original cast are back and once again St. Bernadette's school are involved in another competition. Rather than a Nativity we have a 'Song for Christmas' set in Wales which gives Isitt a chance to have fun with different Christmas songs from the competitors. Tennant has fun playing the dual role of twin brothers but isn't as endearing as Freeman. Wooten is as bonkers as before but I quite like his humour. Unlike the first film the situation get a bit ridiculous here (including a scale down a mountain and a birth in a barn) but there's still fun to be had if you're in the Christmas spirit. The competition goes on too long at the end (it feels like Isitt is padding out the film too much) and no-one would consider this great film-making but I found it quite enjoyable.
