OMG! OMG! It was the best CHRISTIAN holiday movie ever! Perfect match of actors and singers for the roles portrayed. I never had the opportunity to see the play, but I am a fan of Langston Hughes' writings and I did read about it. This was a spectacular production, and I did not know that Forest Whitaker could sing. (Was that really his voice?) Christians and gentiles should all go to see this because it is great holiday entertainment with a very clear message that Love, Family, Forgiveness, and Jesus are Real!

Although it is predictable, and a little trite, it is about faith, family, and forgiveness so to me was worth seeing. Langston Hughes' poetry, is put to music and rapped which was profound and of course Jennifer Hudson's voice is powerful and beautiful. Otherwise, it could have, and should have, been a lot better.

Movie was very good and has a great message about forgiving. In the beginning there was a lot of singing; didn't think I was gonna like it... Glad I was wrong!!!

Great movie that the whole family can attend!! Superb acting and music. Unlike a regular movie Black Nativity could be consider a musical. Remember to bring your tissue. I highly recommend this movie!

It was a tearjerker for me, right from the start. I cry the entire time because it was so sad and for being so great. The singing was awesome.
