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!

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!!!

I wasn't expecting much and really wanted hear the singing which was very much on point. Not sure enough of the play was brought into the production which would have allowed the development of the story line to be deeper and more developed. The wings on the angel (Mary J. Blige) were a bit much and I really didn't understand her purpose. The sound track is outstanding and I loved that Angela and Forest sang as well.

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.
