I don't understand the low score

Review Date 12/30/2018

I Have Reviewed OVER 500 "Christmas Films and Specials". Please BEWARE Of films and specials with just one review! For instance When "It's a POSITIVE" chances are that the reviewer was involved with the production. "If its Negative" then they may have a grudge against the film for whatever reason. I am fare about these films.

This film is a little uneven and its not really a Christmas movie. However there is plenty of laughs and a good cast that makes this a fum watch.

Maynard Grieger is a general store owner in Pottersville, a fictional small town that is struggling since the Pottersville Mill closed. Returning home early from work to surprise his wife, Connie, he finds that she is a furry, along with Jack, the sheriff. Connie states that she needs more excitement in her life, and would like some time apart from Maynard. Maynard drunkenly returns to his store, and after telling his story to his cashier, Parker, dresses up in a gorilla costume and walks around town, startling many individuals. The next morning, Maynard awakes to find that he was misidentified as Bigfoot. Intending to confess, Maynard realizes the potential economic benefits from tourism that Bigfoot may bring, and perpetuates the story by continuing to dress up.

Watch and have fun
