An overly anxious teacher, Mr. Peterson (David Tennant, Fright Night, How to Train Your Dragon, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), begins a new job at an underdog elementary school, where he finds himself coping with a loose cannon classroom aide, Mr. Poppy (Marc Wooton, Arthur Christmas), who’s usually in more trouble than the kids!
When Mr. Poppy determinedly sets his eye on the national “A Song for Christmas” competition – with an enormous cash prize – Mr. Peterson ends up on a bus full of rowdy kids for an impromptu road trip to the competition. There, he will be up against his estranged, identical twin brother (Tenant in a dual role), a world-famous composer, conductor and all-round “golden boy.”
When they become stranded in the wilderness, Mr. Peterson must stand up, face his fears and try to not only lead the class to safety … but to singing victory!
Danger in the Manger is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 (1.85:1) and 5.1 digital surround sound.
If you are looking for a laugh-out-loud fun movie to watch this holiday season, I recommend checking out Danger in the Manger. I was surprised that I haven't heard of the movie before until I was contacted to review the DVD. We love the fact that it is part musical and part action adventure. My daughter loves watch the kids sing and perform. I thought the movie has some great comedy moments but it is also heart warming at the same time. It is a great movie for family movie nights, especially for the holiday season.
