Ooh, a New Kirk Cameron Movie

Kirk Cameron has a new movie coming out and, of course, the Worldnetdaily is promoting it. It’s a movie about “family, faith and baseball” — straight, Christian families only, please. But it’s all very hush hush, you see, because no one was aware it was being filmed, quite possibly including the cast.

“OK, I’ve got a secret to share,” Cameron announced on his Facebook page earlier this month. “No one has heard this yet. Shhhh … brand new movie coming out soon – about family, faith and baseball.”

Cameron also spilled the beans that the movie, “Mercy Rule,” will star Tim Hawkins, the Christian comedian who has become a YouTube sensation poking fun at pop culture and church culture alike.

Christian comedy is a lot like Christian rock, almost universally painful to listen to. But my favorite part of this is that he pretends to have options on how to release the movie:

Cameron asked his Facebook fans whether “Mercy Rule” would be best received in theaters, DVD or digital download, and the “I’ve got a secret” message quickly accumulated over 100,000 “likes” and more than 60,000 answers.

As if there was the option of releasing it in theaters?

    Cameron has made or is making or wants to make a straight to DVD/download movie.

    Or, maybe a straight to dustbin movie…

    Thanks for the warning that Cameron is once again up to his vacuous pap again. I would prefer re-runs of Fatty Arbuckle – those are actually intended as vacuous amusement.

    Straight to home theaters, that is.

    Knowing the way christians rationalize their actions, it will all be torrent downloads. Even if millions watch it, nobody will be paying for it.

    Straight to church Sunday school basements you mean: as in: ‘Jimmy, if you don’t give up your sinful [insert harmless pleasure here] behaviour I’ll make you watch a Kirk Cameron movie locked in the church basement’.

    There’s a lot they had to cut out to fit it in to the 98 minute long theatrical release. I recommend waiting for the director’s cut. It’s 98 minutes shorter.

    Hope his actors signed releases. Calling all lawyers!!

    Facebook gave me a great moment a while ago. Kirk Cameron’s page showed up on FB’s recommended pages to like (given 3 or 4 conservative friends who ‘like’ him).

    I hit the ‘X’ button to get rid of it.

    Facebook filled the space with an option to like Ian McKellen instead. :)

    No doubt some Christian, if he heard that, would claim it’s proof Facebook is controlled by demons. Gay demons at that.

    Ed, @ 0:

    “But it’s all very hush hush, you see, because no one was aware it was being filmed, quite possibly including the cast.”

    When I saw the first line, before I clicked through to read the rest, I thought the movie was some kind of quasi-documentary, filmed somehow without its subjects’ knowledge or consent.

    Which, come to think of it, might not be a bad idea for a (spoof?) horror movie: creepy fundamentalist ex-child star stalks unsuspecting all-American family… (cue violin shrieks!)

    @10,

    Gay demons, or maybe wizard demons or mutant mastermind demons. With McKellan, you get choices.

    Fatwah Arbuckle, the mooslim supervillain.

    Christ vs. Predator? I would actually watch that.

    Gay demons…sounds like a film based on a Ralph König graphic novel, like “Killer Condom”.
