A feel good to warm your heart on a Winter's eve.
23 December 2017 | by dracironSee all my reviews

This movie will not shock you, terrify you. There are no cars flying from building to building and exploding only to have the hero survive because they did a Ninja roll. Just a story of hope and finding meaning in the most mundane of the mundane. Accidentally setting off a spree of Bigfoot sightings, one man transforms a town and leaves it forever changed. This is a rare bird for Hollywood any more. Will it change your world, maybe not, but there are a lot worse ways to spend a couple hours and the laughs that will accompany it.
