Critic Reviews for Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas
It is The Room of Christmas movies. Actually, The Room is more enjoyable. But you get the idea.
Had "Saving Christmas" run any longer, Cameron would no doubt have found a way to find the divinity in Frosty, Rudolph, the Grinch, peppermint bark, the Elf on the Shelf, frosted cranberry hand soap and Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo.
Perhaps the only Christmas movie I can think of, especially of the religious-themed variety, that seems to flat-out endorse materialism, greed and outright gluttony.
This may be one of the least artful holiday films ever made. Even devout born-again Christians will find this hard to stomach.
With a smile so wide and laughter that sounds so forced you half-expect the camera to pull back to reveal hostage takers, Mr. Cameron explains how several facets of the holiday - the tree, Santa Claus, gifts - have roots in religious tradition.
Audience Reviews for Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas
I decided to watch Kirk's movie this year, and I am glad I did. It was a very cute movie. I am sharing it with family and friends. A great alternative to those disaster, horror and pointless films that leave you wondering what they had been made for. Not only is it family friendly, kids will find it fun. and adults will be able to sit and watch a movie that is not only interesting, but not embarrassing to watch. No sex, no cussing, no violence and no hate, at all. Just a good movie.
Kirk Cameron explores the roots of several seemingly secular traditions of the holiday season in Saving Christmas. When his brother-in-law expresses his disillusionment at how secularized Christmas has become, Cameron walks him through the biblical origins for decorated trees, the symbology of the Nativity at the beginning of winter, St. Nicholas, and other various Christmas iconography. However, these explanations are really flimsy and don't have the ring of truth. Also, the acting is terrible and the sets look rather cheap. In the end Saving Christmas doesn't make a convincing argument, and comes off as a desperate attempt to keep Christ in Christmas.
Un-Christian in the worst, most commercial way. Maybe Santa can buy the scriptwriter some writing classes for Christmas?
