November 19, 2020
Cameron's movie is a PSA dressed up as a comedy marketed as a movie.

By the time the filmmakers and their entire families have brought the film to a close, you just feel sorry for them.

[Cameron's] characterization of Jesus as a "material" gift to us from God - evidence, he claims, that God wants us to shop - should offend anyone who balks at placing the Christ Child on the same scale as a $25 gift card.

From the ska-punk version of "Silent Night" that plays over the opening credits to the 10-minute end credits sequence filled with bloopers and beatboxing, this is a 79-minute film that feels like it will never end.

Saving Christmas is basically 80 minutes of Cameron lambasting Christians for not being his equal when it comes to intolerance and close-mindedness.

Preaching aside... Saving Christmas is a shoddy 80-minute feature that contains approximately 50 minutes of actual moving footage.

The worst holiday movie ever made.

Actor encourages grumpy Christians to embrace the season.

Hot cocoa is referenced no fewer than nine times. Cameron talks about the drink as though it were the trump card of his entire argument, as though dropping a microphone. "And COCOA!"

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.

Cameron's preferred tool of engagement is a prybar, applied to your eyelids with an indelicate hand.

More like "Explaining Christmas" and not in a particularly entertaining or well-made way. (Full Content Review -- Sex, Profanity, etc. -- for Parents also available)

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.

Virtually everything about this production feels thrown together.
November 13, 2014
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.

How do you prove a horse is an animal? Because I like Sweden. That's the style of absurd logic that happens in "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" ...

As a movie, Saving Christmas is not good. But as a teaching aid for congregants about having their fruitcake and eating it, too? Sure, why not. Go nuts, guys.
