Storyline

This Christmas, primary school teacher Paul Maddens is charged with producing the school's nativity play. Competing against the posh rival 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. Written by Anonymous

Feelgood Christmas movie
3 December 2009 | by (Liverpool United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film leaves you with a warm feeling in your heart.

I don't agree with some of the minor negative comments on this forum. This is a simple easy to watch film and you should not try to over analyse it like some have done.

The plot is simple, the kids are fantastic and Bob steals the show as well as your heart.

Yes this is a low budget film but they must have had loads of fun making this film.

If you want to see a film that makes you feel good then this is the one for you.
