Kevin says Christmas Town kinda sucks!
DVD experience: *
Christmas Town tells the story of a disillusioned realtor named Liza McCann who travel to Hollyville to visit her father. There, she discovers a town that is all about Christmas. Soon, her son becomes convinced that the town is a direct line to Santa Claus. Liza finds her cynical views of Christmas are challeneged with fresh, new hope.
This film is a typical direct-to-video family film. It’s a nice, safe film to watch with your kids during the holidays, tip-toeing around the Santa spoilers and other revelations. The son is a bit odd, but the charm between stars Nicole de Boer as Liza and Patrick Muldoon helps save the film from too much schmaltziness.
There are no special features on this DVD.
