A Story that is NOT worth hearing...

Though the ending did get MUCH better, I felt this movie was dull, unsatisfying, and down-right confusing!

the nativity story was a wonderful movie that portrayed the most important event of all time, the birth of Jesus Christ. the acting was wonderful, and humor was sprinkled throughout the script. in the scene where Jesus was born, i cried, because i was so overcome with joy and wonder. this movie strengthened my faith, and i encourage all of my Christian brothers and sisters to go and see it.

A Few Errors, Besides That It's Good

By filmreal

I enjoyed this film, but there were a few biblical errors. First of all, the three wisemen didn't arrive on the day of Jesus's birth, they arrived twelve days afterward (Epiphany). It is debatable whether Mary had labor pains or not, and we may never know for sure. King Herod did not receive word about the birth of a King until the three wisemen showed up to tell him. Other than those flaws, I heartily enjoyed the film. Oscar-nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes was pretty good as Mary, however the film did not portray Mary in the sinless, passive way that I imaged. If the film did anything, it showed the sacrifices Joseph made instead of Mary. Oscar Isaacs was outstanding as Joseph, and Shohreh Aghdashloo performed well as Mary's cousin Elizabeth. Other than a handful of religious flaws, "The Nativity Story" is great, and it does (almost) accurately illustrate the first Christmas miracle.

Gave new meaning to story of Christmas

I truly enjoyed this movie. It's about time the filmmakers make good wholesome movies. I thought this movie gave great insight to the lives of Mary and Joseph once they accepted God's plan for them and how the townspeople shunned them. Also, I liked the historical research that was obviously done in order to give the film the quality that it had. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone looking for not only a good movie, but one that will help us to understand the true meaning of Christmas all the more. Give Hollywood a "well done" on this one!
