It was refreshing to find a movie that you could enjoy with everyone in your family, from grandparents to grandchildren, without worrying about inappropriate themes, sex, violence or profanity. I enjoyed seeing seasoned actors included in more than token appearances, and hearing some really good singing from more than just the expected source, in this case the incredible Jennifer Hudson. It didn't hurt either that Langston Hughes happens to be one of my favorite poets. Great acting and directing.

Big Fandango error. I was on a screen for Captain Phillips and thought I was printing up for that movie at AMC 84. Instead, what came out of the printer were ticket for Black Nativity. Your error, not mine. thankfully, the theater refunded the $27 to my credit card account.

Black Nativity was a good show, though not a Christmas must see. It had an awesomely strong cast, which is why I had over-active expectations. You figure with Forest Whitaker and Anglea Bassett co-starring together; along with the vocals of Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson it should have been a block-buster. It was a "GO" at best.

A much like real life. You know we sometime fall asleep I church. The plot was excellent. I did a lot of crying and rejoicing. There's nothing like a good movie without swearing. Very relative to family ambitions for their children. trying to protect them. People were clapping, and rejoicing by the end of the show. The actors were very believable. The scene in the pond shop had me on edge and praying.

If you appreciate good music, and want an uplifting story of forgiveness and redemption, this is your movie. Well worth the 40 mile trip to see.
