So Christmas is well and truly here and so far, Christmas Movies = 2 Seen (Check!). I definitely think I've done my bit for the "Kiddie Xmas Movies" this year but to be brutally honest - I cant complain about either of them (See earlier Christmas Carol Blog)
There are a few rules when you go and see Nativity!
Rule 1 - TAKE KIDS!!! This is definitely not a movie to see without them and besides, everyone else will take their kids so you will just look silly!
Rule 2 - Don't Expect the Hollywood Elite, The kids are REAL KIDS (barring the Cheeky Monkeys from Britain's got Talent) but other than that they all are normal kids, cast for a BBC movie
Rule 3 - you will think you are watching something by Ricky Gervais, the cast include ex Office & Extras stars so don't be confused!!
Rule 4 - Smile!!, Its heartwarming.
It's not big budget, its not even well acted but it's fun. You want Hollywood to turn up and the kids are Fantastic!!!, keep an eye out for mini Elvis and the kid who's talent is turning purple - they are the best. The star of the whole movie is the Teaching Assistant, Mr Poppy, who delivers a brilliant performance even down to wearing his Parker as a cape (as we all did!) and acting, speaking and behaving throughout the whole film as a kid in the class, rather than a TA in charge of them!!
My wife cried, my daughter laughed and my M&M's ran out all too quickly. Great cameos from Alan Carr and Pam Ferris and all in all a Happy Ending!!!
See this if...............you LURVE Christmas!!!
