I am always amazed that people can never get the birth of Christ correct when it is written for all to know. Perhaps Father God is allowing this because He wants you to read the story for yourself.

Wasn't as funny as the preview led me to expect but it was still good. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Cute rendition of the Christmas story. A little suspense thrown in. From the perspective of the animals.

Who knew a donkey played such a major role in Jesusโ€™s birth? In all seriousness, My family and I love this movie. It is such a cute way to introduce the story of Jesus Christ, our Savior to young ones and the animals are quite funny. I cannot recommend this movie enough!

Wonderful movie. The birth of Jesus Christ, in a mainstream movie for children in this day and age, is a blessing any way you look at it.

I loved this movie when I saw it in the theater, and I loved it again when I took it home to watch with my husband. The little note from the movie's creators in the credits says it all for me: they took some artistic liberties with the story in order to create an adventure story sprinkled with some well-placed jokes, but tried their best to stay true to the spirit of the original story. I loved the humor and the heart of this nativity story retelling.

VERY GOOD, MUST SEE...ALTHOUGH ANIMATED, THE MESSAGE IS VERY, VERY GOOD ABOUT THE BIRTH OF CHRIST...EXCELLENT ART CRAFTSMANSHIP PRODUCTION

The movie was cute... had a great message without being too preachy...and had an outstanding cast of voice actors (Oprah!). If you're worried about it being sacrilegious it isn't.... just telling the Nativity story from the animals point of view. Kids will love it, and although it isn't as creative as Pixar is for adults, it isn't too bad for adults to sit through either! I'd recommend.

What a missed opportunity to teach young viewers The Story of the nativity the right way. When the angel appeared to Mary, how difficult would it have been to add the words as written in the Gospel; instead the dialogue was so truncated that it's unsure if the viewers understood that this was a miracle conception. Joseph's conflict was not "do I have what it takes to do this for God" but rather "what should I do with Mary given that she's pregnant and the child is not mine"; bypassed this integral part of the story. What I did like about the film was the last moment of the film in the grotto; emotionally moving scene; the background story of the animals and their mission to protect Mother and Child. Overall rating - watchable but not Bible Class-worthy.
