Nativity! cheer for film charts.

COVENTRY Christmas movie Nativity! is proving a favourite at the box office.

The festive comedy filmed on location in Coventry and Warwickshire opened in UK cinemas on Friday and has now entered the UK Film Top 10 after a busy weekend.

The movie by award-winning Coventry film-maker Debbie Isitt entered the charts at No.6 and is proving popular with family audiences.

The Guardian said: "Writer-director Debbie Isitt turns the seasonal-good-cheer generator up to 11."

The Daily Star wrote: "Christmas is coming and with it a comedy that's so relentlessly heart-warming you could roast a turkey on it."

And The Times said: "The songs are catchier than a plague of nits."

The Daily Mail declared it "so deliriously corny that I can imagine it becoming the unlikeliest hit of the year."

The movie stars Martin Freeman, Pam Ferris, Alan Carr and Ricky Tomlinson.
