Synopsis:
A small but brave donkey named Bo yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told - the first Christmas.

VERY American, preachy Nativity story with dreadful modern R&B music BUT a so-so watch - The Star review by PV

Spoiler Alert
10/01/2019

I enjoyed this DESPITE some things such as the AWFUL music - dreadful new R&B versions of carols (YUCK!) and slushy Christian songs.

All a bit preachy too, and as is usual in modern animations, there just has to be the African American characters, ALWAYS witty, sassy etc which is now a stereotype in itself.

BUT the animation is good as is the story structure. SO I did enjoy it despite its faults. But those faults made me cringe and wince.

3 stars - but only JUST!

Well worth a watch - The Star review by DH

Spoiler Alert
23/12/2019

I've seen a lot of naff animated movies lately and didn't have high hopes for this one but it was really lovely. Well told and the characters were nicely developed. Clearly it helped seeing it the Sunday before Christmas! Children and adults alike will find something special in this film.
