Kirk Cameron Wants to Save Christmas, but He Can’t Even Save His Own Movie

This is the actual poster for Kirk Cameron‘s movie Saving Christmas:

It’s one of those cases where you can absolutely judge a book by its cover. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a pathetic score of 9%, with one critic saying it’s “one of the least artful holiday films ever made.” There’s also this takedown, which seems to perfectly encapsulate all things Cameron:

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”…
