NATIVITY 2 - DANGER IN THE MANGER! is a comedy drama about a school that enters a 'Song For Christmas' competition. It is a sequel to the 2009 film NATIVITY and is rated U for mild rude humour.

There are a number of comic references to bodily functions, including jokes about breaking wind and discussion about a baby's nappy needing to be changed. In one scene, a baby urinates on a man when its nappy is being changed. There are also some jokey references to 'willies' in the context of a song. The mild rude humour is not the main focus of the work and occurs in the context of a good-natured film about overcoming odds through teamwork.

There is some mild slapstick violence and bad behaviour, for example a man pulls another's ear during a squabble, and children are seen interfering with a road sign. The scenes are comic and antisocial behaviour is not condoned

At one point a man remarks that he's had "the journey from hell". However, this is not a use of bad language but a description of the man's terrible journey.

There is some mild tension as one of the teachers is forced to save a child who has been trapped while rock climbing, with a helicopter rescue being required. The child is unharmed and the incident is reassuringly resolved.

At the end of the film, a woman gives birth. However, no detail is shown, there is no emphasis on pain, and the scene is briefly and reassuringly presented.

U stands for Universal, which means that we think the film is suitable for audiences aged four or older.
