What possessed David Tennant? confusedgrinOne of the most bizarre films I've ever seen!

Even whiskey isn't improving it. DT looks sexier as the knobhead twin.

You think that's bad, don't even go there with 3! Even the kids were confused (and bored). Shame it all went so wrong as the first film is one of our family Xmas favourites😞

We love all the Nativity films. They were filmed in our city so we spot places. We know some of the dancers in them too.

I caught the second half of it yesterday.
I was in hysterics
And then at the end, where Joanna Page has the babies in the stable I was sobbing I laughed so hard
Then I was just sobbing
In my defence...I had also just got a BFN!

I agree with Cherrypie. Nativity 3 is a terrible film and I love most Christmas films tbh!

I love Nativity 2. Love the baby. And Mr Poppy.

I saw 3 at the cheap cinema lSt week and thought it was lovely as did dd 4. Now I'm wondering if there is something wrong with me.

But Ledkr didn't it annoy you that the donkey suddenly appeared in the middle of New York with no explanation? Perhaps I was expecting too much!

I took the kids to see Nativity 3 on the cheapy Saturday showing. Rather glad I had my knitting with me as I managed to poke my eyes out to avoid having to watch it.

DD1 (8) thought it was hilarious thiugh

Ledkr Tue 22-Dec-15 17:43:30

Well not as much as the kids being in New York on a school trip and with other people's boarding pass and staying in a hotel with no room, but.......I did love it still and just saw it as total fantasy and not a piece of serious drama grin I was also very tired and had some lovely coffee and cake so would have enjoyed anything to be fair.

I cried. I have no BFP or even potentially POAS as an excuse.

MrsLeighHalfpenny Tue 22-Dec-15 17:51:15

I loved 1 and 2. Not seen 3.

I'd marry Mr Poppy smile

Pooseyfrumpture Tue 22-Dec-15 17:53:40

Mr Poppy is ace grin but I do have to worry about DT's agent sometimes - Spies of Warsaw, St Trinian's, Secret Smile were all total shite.

We love 1 (I cry every time), like 2, and can't believe that we polluted our eyes and brains with 3

Sirzy Tue 22-Dec-15 21:12:31

I think 2 is the worst of the 3 but I still enjoyed it.

CremeBrulee Tue 22-Dec-15 21:13:23

We loved 1, really like 3 and quite like 2 (some if songs are good) but it really needed editing, and lost its way quite badly. I remember seeing it at the Cinema and feeling like the 'lost the countryside' bit was never going to end!

oneowlgirl Sat 26-Dec-15 18:57:13

We all enjoyed 1 & 2 in our house. I've not seen 3 yet, but my DS9 has & loved it!

tribpot Sat 26-Dec-15 19:07:48

3 is beyond shit, but 2 is not much better. I think I have managed to avoid ever seeing 1, thank god. Seriously I cannot believe they persuaded decent actors to make such total bilge.

Cherrypie32 Sat 26-Dec-15 21:17:16

Aw, don't write off 1 on the (de) merits of 2 & 3, it's practically Oscar worthy in comparison and very festive!

I love three as it has simon lipkin as an elf and I luffs him.

PirateSmile Sun 27-Dec-15 09:47:47

All three are dreadful but Nativity 3 is particularly dire.

I don't especially like films where the dialogue is improvised, and the plot doesn't have any kind of proper structure which means it's all over the place.

Nativity 2 annoyed me because the afternoon went on forever. We live further south than Wales and even here they would have had about 10 minutes between realising that they hadn't turned up for lunch and it beginning to get dark. I know it is all fiction but unless it is scifi I do like the basic rules of nature to kind of hold together.

RebootYourEngine Sun 27-Dec-15 10:50:43

I am like you ShouldWe.

I get annoyed at films that seem unrealistic but are meant to be realistic. I just seemed to have spent the whole of nativity 2 shouting 'oh come on that wouldnt happen'.

Lulooo Mon 28-Dec-15 22:02:53

I've seen 1 and 2 and liked them both. 1 I loved actually and I did have to fast forward some of the songs in 2 as they were way too long after a bit.
