      r 9 What an odd film. Literally every inch of this film points to it being deserving of the lowest of ratings. The acting is wooden at best, the title is ill-fitting, the direction is awful and the dialogue is poor. Yet, it kinda works in a weird, basement level sorta way? I'm not saying it's good, I didn't enjoy it, but once the credits rolled I didn't feel anything negative towards it - which is a surprise, given the aforementioned. It does everything so averagely, that it pretty much levels out to create a poor but not terrible film - at least in my opinion. I have little to no praise of it though. Some of the humour is alright, I guess. Matt McCoy and Adam Ferrara are the 'picks' of the cast, though that's just down to process of elimination. The (UK - US have a different one?) title is slightly misleading, given only a short snippet of this has anything to do with the banning of Christmas. Overall, 'The Town That Banned Christmas' is all rather poor. I'm just surprised I didn't hate it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
