This Christmas, the unforgettable pupils of St. Bernadette's have set their hearts on competing in the National choir contest "A Song For Christmas." But with the headmistress not in favour of the plan, new class teacher Mr Peterson has his hands full trying to curb the enthusiasm of the kids, not to mention Mr Poppy.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"'Nativity 2' offers roughly as many laughs as the Queen's speech."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The only laughs come from the film's title and Jessica Hynes as a ridiculously pretentious TV hostess."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Slack and savvy in equal measure, and a guaranteed hit."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Overlong and idiotic it raises a few chuckles thanks to the game cast."
‑ Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express
"It hurts to remember."
‑ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
"It might actually be funnier if you haven't seen the first film, but I'm not in a position to say--only that it's disappointingly similar to the original, and suffers from the comparison."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"How often, on the big screen, will your nippers ever be able to watch fellow children in familiar blue uniforms just being allowed to be themselves?"
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Offers little in the way of festive fun."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
"Silly, goofy and pretty groanworthy. But it is unpretentious and is, after all, aimed at very young children."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Despite some decent songs and a supporting cast full of likeable scene-stealing moppets, this remains a dismal, poorly structured comedy sequel that's depressingly low on laughs."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"After 2009's inane comedy Nativity, no one was clamouring for a sequel, but at least this one tips the scales into sublime silliness."
‑ Rich Cline,
"The earlier, fairly crummy picture now seems like FW Murnau's Sunrise when set beside the blitzkrieg of awfulness that is Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!"
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"The first Nativity was a corny, amateurish shambles, but it had that hard-to-define quality of likeability. Its sequel has none."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"Danger in the Manger! never has its heart anywhere other than in the right place ..."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"Deliberately or otherwise, this sequel pushes the amateurish angle much harder, and seems to wear its abject lousiness as a badge of honour."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
