The perilous journey of a young couple who must travel from their home in Nazareth to Bethlehem, Joseph's ancestral home, to register for a census ordered by King Herod. It is a journey of over 100 miles, through treacherous terrain, made much more difficult by the fact that Mary is nine months pregnant.
Drama - This is a period drama about the birth of Jesus aimed at the entire
family for the holiday season.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average As a piece of religious instruction or an animated version of a crèche, it accomplishes its aims. As a movie, however, it's slow, plodding, and not terribly interesting.
Roger EbertFull Review Good 'The Nativity Story' is a refreshingly unadorned example of straightforward storytelling.

Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 96 moviegoers: GREAT OPINIONS! Over half rated it "Fantastic" or "Excellent." Equally important is that very few rated it as low as average. This easily makes "The Nativity Story" a HIGHLY RATED MOVIE NOT TO BE MISED!
