Did he just say FART. Boring. Always the same Bullsh*t. Finally, a feel good movie about financially stable upper middle class white people, with hints of Christianity. I can't believe Hallmark isn't all over this. Come to think of it... First trailer I think I've seen with fart in the dialogue.
Mel Gibson's son Milo plays Al Capone in this. Mafia movies are my favorite but this one is just shit, oh and also why al capone there is enough movies about him, make movies about diffrent gangsters like frank costello. 1:09 HAHAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.

POTTERSVILLE is an economically-strapped town, declining since its biggest employer, the mill, closed and locals have lost their jobs and their dignity. Maynard ( Michael Shannon) still runs the general store as his family has done for generations. He keeps an accounting ledger, and extends credit without question or judgment to many residents struggling to feed their families. Closing the shop early one day, he goes home early to surprise his wife, Connie ( Christina Hendricks) with a romantic dinner. He finds her in the bedroom dressed as a large bunny, cavorting with Jack, the town's sheriff ( Ron Perlman) who is dressed as a wolf (although Maynard insists as a running joke that Jack looks more like a squirrel. The costumed pair explain that their secret club, The Furries, just dress up and rub, no sex allowed, but Maynard goes off to sulk and get drunk. In that condition, he returns to his store and dons a gorilla suit, then for no good reason heads for the woods. In the morning, he awakens on the floor of his store, discovering that his inebriated wanderings as a gorilla were reported the night before by neighbors to the police as Bigfoot sightings. This arouses the interest of the whole town and a reality TV show starring a fraudulent Aussie Sasquatch "expert. Brock (Thomas Lennon) is really American but he hopes to ride the Squatch hunt into a network show. He teams up with the sheriff and the local hunter and woodsman, Bart (Ian McShane) who vows to catch Bigfoot. Armed with guns, both tranquilizer and bullet varieties, and a large tent, the three head into the night to catch the non-existent creature. Maynard has tried to tell the sheriff about his drunken outing but the sheriff is too busy, thrusting the plot ever forward into unlikely situations. Maynard-as-Bigfoot feels obligated to continue the charade for the sake of the town's well-being and gets tranquilized and exposed. He's immediately ostracized for the deception until the townspeople realize how kind and decent he has always been to them. Is it any good? This is a strained comedy featuring a whimsical plot that is unaccompanied by any supportive whimsical writing or acting. Formula rules over creativity. Maynard's unassuming but supportive employee, played by Judy Greer, is a stock character - the "good woman. no more than a device to bring the movie around to its goal of getting Maynard what he deserves. Much of the comedy depends on lame ribbing of a cowardly TV "monster hunter" who thinks more about hair and makeup than the content of his show. Shannon is likable enough as a doormat to his oblivious and selfish wife, but it's utterly unfathomable that anyone would continue to run around at night in the woods dressed as Bigfoot while people with guns were also running around out there looking to shoot him. The movie certainly has to overcome that unreality and since it fails to do so, everything that follows becomes equally difficult to swallow, or even sit through. At one point, Maynard types a letter before he goes off for his last appearance as Bigfoot, but we never find out what he wrote. The ending returns to the believable. The town recognizes the way it has taken dear, sweet, generous Maynard for granted, realizing how much more he's given them than the presence of a mythical creature ever could. Talk to your kids about... Families can talk about how the movie veers from its original point, which seems to be that Maynard is a really nice guy. Why do you think he does what he does? Maynard's wife is painted as a cartoonish and selfish person. Do you believe that character seems realistic or do you think her extreme character was created just to bolster the comedy? Does the effort to make this story funny seem strained? What about this movie works as a comedy and what doesn't? Would it have been better as a drama? Our editors recommend This classic delivers warmth all year long. Jimmy Stewart + a 6' rabbit = a family delight. Peppy holiday favorite for both kids and parents.

This movie sneaks up on you. You aren't getting the recent rash of over the top brash and crass movies of the current era. You are getting a cute and in the end a heart-warming comedy.
To begin, this movie comes at us from a small, down on its luck town who's main employer "The Mill" has recently closed. Maynard is one of the few remaining business owners, and his corner store is the focal point of the town. This is much like many small towns across America, so many viewers can relate.
The movie portrays a few pretty typical characters you might also find in those small towns and exaggerates their personalities just enough to make them quite amusing, but not overdone like an SNL skit.
One character that IS over the top is the "Monster Hunter" that comes into the town searching for bigfoot. (In a not so veiled spoof of Bear Grilles or similar reality star.) He is ridiculously funny, but it somehow fits.
To Me, this is a great movie to watch with the whole family. Three are a few scenes with minor sexual overtones, but PG is how I would rate it. And I can only recall a few occasions of foul language.
I mention these things because I feel the shocking nature of many films today is borne of laziness. Writers and directors who are out of ideas and fall back on foul language and shock value as an answer to comedy. This movie breaks that mold and still generates the laughs.
So the bottom line is, if you are looking for a caustic f-bomb fest, this isn't the movie for you. Go watch The Hangover or something else. Those are funny movies for sure, but his movie takes a different route.
This movie has great acting, a great story and surprisingly funny scenes. A great way to spend an hour and a half with the family.
May not be much of a movie, but Pottersville's photoshop game is impeccable For the third entry in Control Nathan and Clint, I gave patrons a choice between the ill-fated Brendan Fraser-fights-CGI animals flop Furry Vengeance or the eventual winner, Pottersville. Pottersville is a Furry themed Bigfoot Christmas sex comedy starring Michael Shannon thats also an elaborate tribute to Frank Capra and Its a Wonderful Life. That sounds more like a Madlib or a random jumble of words than the premise for an actual movie. Yet I can wearily attest that Pottersville is all too real and, astonishingly, is even more misbegotten and ill-thought-out than it first appears. Thats because while Pottersville is indeed a Furry themed Bigfoot Christmas sex comedy, albeit of the almost impressively half-assed variety, much of its running time is devoted to elaborate parodies of Robert Shaws steely hunter Quint from Jaws and reality TV adventurers like Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. Heres a good rule of thumb: if the person youre spoofing has been dead for over a decade, as Irwin has, or just under four decades, in the case of Shaw, you may want to go with something a little more timely. Then again, maybe we should just be grateful that because Pottersville clocks in at 85 minutes we were spared sex-themed parodies of Barney the Dinosaur or, God help us, poor, helpless Elmo. Who thought taking the piss out of the Crocodile Hunter and Jaws was a good idea in a Bigfoot-themed 2017 piece of Capra-Crap? The otherwise very smart and accomplished Thomas Lennon and Ian McShane, apparently since theyre the ones playing, respectively, Brock Masterson, a reality television “Monster Hunter” with a big fake Australian accent that betrays a very predictable reveal that hes an American actor faking an Aussie identity, and Bart, the films hard-living, steely-eyed Quint figure. Pottersville features some of our greatest character actors doing some of their very worst work, beginning with national treasure Michael Shannon, who Executive Produced in addition to starring as Maynard, a small businessman and bastion of small-town decency who tries to surprise wife Connie Greiger (Christina Hendricks) only to find her dressed in a Bunny costume doing sex stuff with a guy in a wolf costume who turns out to be his good friend Sheriff Jack (Ron Pearlman. Now I just finished the first draft of a book on the movie Postal and Ron Perlman turned down the role of Uncle Dave, which Dave Foley ended up knocking out of the park, on moral as well as creative grounds. He was offended by Postal and particularly its opening scene. So whenever I see Perlman in a movie like this I think, “Really Ron? You were too good for Postal but you said “Hell yes! Gimme that wolf costume! Im gonna get my furry-fuck on! ” to Pottersville? Maynard is so devastated that he gets blackout drunk and, in a very confused act of quasi-revenge, or masochism puts on what barely constitutes a gorilla costume and stumbles about the town in a drunken haze. When Maynard comes to, everything is suddenly different in Pottersville, what with reports of Bigfoot sightings transforming this sleepy little piece of shit knock off of a Frank Capra small town into an unlikely Mecca for Bigfoot lovers. While ambling to work one day, Maynard is accosted by a pair of overly enthusiastic dweebs who gush to him, “Weve been researching this whole Bigfoot thing and people really love him! Its true! He's been around for centuries and people on every continent, that speak every language, they cant get enough of this guy. So we decided to get into the Bigfoot business. Were gonna start this cottage industry! ” Pottersville thinks people are so stupid that the audience for wacky, sentimental Bigfoot Yuletide Furry sex comedy that they need to be introduced to the concept of Bigfoot via the dialogue equivalent of a poorly sourced, badly written Wikipedia page. Boy, these geniuses must really have done a lot of research. Im surprised they didnt mention that these creatures are also very hairy and have big feet. Maybe they need to do more research before they achieve that level of wisdom and mastery. But it goes beyond that. This is a Bigfoot Yuletide Furry sex comedy that also feels the need to explain the concept of Furries in a way thats condescending, threadbare and feels inaccurate. Pottersville literally depicts the world of Furries as a social club people in small towns join so they can put on animal costumes and rub up against each other in a way thats maybe sexual and maybe not? Pottersville seems fine with either interpretation, just as it seems oddly fine with being a wholesome, bland, family-friendly small town Christmas movie for a Furry sex comedy. If youve ever wondered what a Lifetime Christmas movie would feel like if it were Furry-themed, this is as close as youre likely to get unless Lifetime or society change in surprising ways. I love Michael Shannon. Before Pottersville, I would have thought he could do anything but he is horribly miscast here as an everyman exemplar of small town dignity, George Bailey in the body of Vlade Divac. Maynard is a man of few words. Unfortunately, in Pottersville those words include dialogue like, “I went to to breathe some life and then life decided to poop in my face so I ended up breathing poop”, “Theres no Connie! Shes been replaced by the Easter bunnys evil twin” and “Ill play freaky forest animals with you! ” The election of Donald Trump has forever changed the way I gauge the plausibility of art and entertainment. Before Trumps election, I would argue strongly that nobody could possibly be stupid enough to mistake a man (not even an actor, or someone with improv training. in a cheap, ten-dollar store-bought gorilla costume for the legendary beast known as Bigfoot, Yeti, King Harold the Furry Juggalo and many other names. After Trumps election, Im not so sure. You have to be pretty fucking stupid to think a tall guy in an almost egregiously bad ape costume is a legendary mythological creature that does not actually exists, but you also need to be pretty fucking stupid to think handing Trump the nuclear football is a wise idea. Pottersville becomes the international hub of Bigfoot mania all the same. Narcissistic reality TV adventurer Brock Masterson swoops into the situation, hoping to tape the biggest episode of his career. When Brock shows up Pottersville, the film briefly seems to forget about Maynard and the Furries and becomes the Thomas Lennon show. I did not object. The only time I laughed was when Lennons preening TV phony whips out an acoustic guitar, announces that his next song is dedicated to Nelson Mandela and begins singing about his love of Yetis. Its Thomas Lennon being Thomas Lennon; even in these dire circumstances, thats funny but the moment he stops crooning the movie resumes sucking. The widespread mortification surrounding Pottersville centered on the Furry aspect. It was wild enough that a respected Thespian like Shannon would be making a Bigfoot Christmas movie. Throw in a sexual fetish society, but particularly the wisenheimers online cant stop giggling about, and you have a movie that emits an almost Star Wars Holiday Special level of morbid fascination. So it is both a relief and a let-down that the Furry aspects of Pottersville are mere window dressing. Despite his ape costume, Maynard never gets into the lifestyle and Maynards wife and the sheriff are both one-dimensional caricatures, a furry femme fatale and goober small town lawman respectively. Pottersville is astonishingly misconceived even before a tone-deaf climactic monologue where Maynard explains how putting on a dumb-ass ape suit and pretending to be Bigfoot taught people to believe in magic and wonder and something bigger than themselves while bringing the town together. The movies PG-13 rating speaks to its hopelessly confused nature. What the fuck kind of a sex comedy is rated PG-13? Then again, Pottersville is weirdly asexual for a sex comedy, particularly one involving furries. I have talked about the many dispiriting, unforgivable elements of Pottersville but I haven't even gotten to perhaps its most egregious crime: Judy Greer is the motherfucking female lead! How infinitely wrong is that? Pottersville wastes the cast of a lifetime, but Greer is the most hopelessly wasted as a plucky young woman who believes with all her heart in Maynard and, in her nadir/apex, convinces the town to love Maynard all over again by revealing that the big book where Maynard claimed to jot down all the money hes owed by customers—Maynards is the first general store since the fifties to allow people to buy stuff on credit—is empty! What a Saint! What a shitty businessman! How very much exactly like Its a Wonderful Life only total shit! When a delight like Judy Greer is reduced to having the most thankless role in Pottersville her agent has clearly failed her. Show business has clearly failed her. Heck, society has failed her. Pottersville somehow imagines that it can spend seventy minutes giggling sophomorically about Furries and spoofing pop culture phenomenon that was played out decades ago yet still give itself the Its A Wonderful Life ending where the town comes together to save him because of God and America and Jesus and the Bible and Jimmy Stewart. Even the woman who earlier expressed a desire to stick a “big foot” up Maynards ass is remorseful. I know almost nothing about Furries, except that they derive sexual pleasure from wearing animal costumes and doing sex stuff yet I am nevertheless offended and insulted on Furries behalf. They deserve so much more than for a movie as unconscionably, unforgivably dumb as Pottersville to try to glean cheap, glib laughs at their expense. But Im even more offended as a human being and film watcher (I stopped being a critic long ago, and cinephile is too highfalutin' for my homegrown, hillbilly self. Its not just Furries who deserve better than Pottersville: everybody does, particularly, one of the most insanely over-qualified, wasted casts in recent memory. We still love you, Michael Shannon, but this was a Bigfoot-sized mistake for everyone involved, you most of all. Want to listen to Nathan and Clint talking some Pottersville with special guest (and king of cinematic Christmas) Alonso Duralde? Oh yes you do! Support Nathan Rabins Happy Place and Happy Cast and get to vote on polls like the one that led to me and Clint suffering through this abomination over at.
When does this come out.
