Trivia

During the raft scene, David Tennant actually threw himself around a little bit. Unfortunately, he timed one of his jumps a little wrong, and he ended up in the river. Marc Wootton reacted quickly by telling the director not to panic, and actually helped David out of the river. See more »

Mr Poppy and co return
12 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having enjoyed the original 'Nativity' I was slightly dubious about this sequel but I'm pleased to say that all involved have done a great job and that it more than stands up against the previous instalment.

David Tennant does well replacing Martin Freeman in the lead and his story is both funny and moving throughout. As with the original it is Marc Wootton's Mr Poppy who steals the show and their chemistry is one of the film's strong points.

While there is perhaps not as much depth to this film as the original it remains an enjoyable film that can entertain all the family and I for one look forward to the planned sequel coming to cinemas next Christmas.
