This Christmas, elementary school teacher Paul Maddens is charged with producing the school's nativity play. Competing against his archrival at the local private school for the honor of best reviewed show in town, the stakes are raised when Paul idly boasts that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer, a Hollywood Producer, is coming to see his show with a view to turning it into a film. The only trouble is - they haven't spoken in years. With eccentric assistant Mr Poppy fuelling his 'little white lie', Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity and at the center of quarreling parents and over-excited children desperate in their bid for fame and fortune. Maddens' only hope is to get back in touch with Jennifer and lure Hollywood to town so that everybody's Christmas wishes come true.
Not too shabby
3 1/2 stars
A heart felt story of Christmas, Londoner Paul Maddens struggles to get his ex, a hollywood producer to come see his students' play, Nativity, after telling everyone she would. Rather slow at the beginning, this movie was a mixture of comedy and drama, keeping you guessing. The resulting play brings a modern twist on the age old story, one twist featuring the boy band of four kings. Not a must see, but not a don't you dare.
I love it. We watch it at least 4 times every Christmas. We are trying to do "Nativity! the Musical" at our church
