Pope[edit]

This source: http://cosmos-liturgy-sex.com/2006/11/ as for the reason the Pope did not attend actually contradicts the claim that the Pope did not attend for the stated reason (because of Keisha's pregnancy). See this: http://cosmos-liturgy-sex.com/2006/11/24/breaking-news-teen-actress-playing-mary-in-the-nativity-story-is-not-a-virgin/ (article from the aforementioned source).

Why would the film "draw heavily from the four gospels" when only Matthew and Luke contain a Nativity story? 209.178.210.100

What is "this seems to have been brought into jeopardy with the recent pregnancy of Keisha Castle-Hughes" supposed to mean?

Have there been news reports disputing the appropriateness of the film or the actress due to her pregnancy. As far as I am aware she was in a long term (3 years) relationship with the father, and at 16 was of legal age. --Tobey 16:52, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Because the target audience were Christians who believe everything the words of the child inside this actress's character's womb including when He said that people aren't even supposed to look at one another lustfully outside of marriage. In any situation no matter how good the movie is the number of box-office purchasings depends heavily on the actors whether the viewers want to support them or vise versa. -Teofil Bartlomiej 23:53, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Maybe. But I don't see what that has to with the film. Get some more information that article needs such as critical reception, first. Then if there is a big brew-ha-ha you should consider adding it. --211.26.126.86 09:29, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

i heard this was the first film to be premared at the Vatican, is this right, i have no sources. User:cj105 12:26, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Ironic that the actress was obviously guilty of (under age) fornication while making a Christian film.124.197.15.138 (talk) 04:10, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

The reference to the Star of Bethlehem is imprecise at best, misleading at worst. It is generally recognised that the Star as described in the bible would NOT have been an alignment of planets, because a) it would move in time and b) the wise men would not bother with something as predictable. This must be changed, could be done simply by a reference to the corresponding wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_of_Bethlehem

How can the alignment of three planets create a star? Is that actually what the Magi are said in the film to have believed?124.197.15.138 (talk) 04:10, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

- I'm curious as to the original budget for the movie. The reason I ask is that I see that the movie made $44 million dollars. I'm wondering how much it cost to make, so you can get a sense of whether or not movies like this are worth the money.

Rotten Tomatoes[edit]

If the movies' reviews were rotten on Rotten Tomatoes, that would mean that Hollywood criticized those movies, however, Hollywood didn't care about religion. --PJ Pete

Controversy[edit]

Wasn't there the big scandal surrounding this film where the "virgin" got knocked up out of wedlock between the end of production and the film's premiere, thus making a laughingstock out of the whole fiasco?

Original Research in "Questions of historical and biblical accuracy"[edit]

I have tagged this section for OR and removed 2 of the 5 claims. Each was referenced only to the 1911 Catholic Encyclopedia, and unsurprisingly the references did not mention this 2006 film - so WP:SYNTHESIS - nor did they in fact contain the assertions the text would suggest. I just removed two claims as wrong in terms of Catholic doctrine. Frankly I think the whole section could go. Johnbod (talk) 00:24, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Completely agree. I removed it. --80.219.252.246 (talk) 12:43, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
