KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS Trailer Goes for Funny but Is Actually Horrifying

     August 27, 2014


Wow.  I know Kirk Cameron went deep down the rabbit hole a long time ago, but I wasn’t expecting him to suddenly think he was Judd Apatow.  But here he is with Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas (a title that works in several ways, mind you). There’s something deeply disturbing about this trailer and I can’t put my finger on it.  It could be the lack of laughs, sure.  It could also be the fact that it militantly sets out to negate some arguably very true points about Christmas.  Or maybe it’s the fact that he wonders aloud in his narration what “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” even mean?  Is he actually confused about what those two phrases mean?

While Cameron didn’t write the film (that would be Darren Doane and Chester Hervey) or direct it (Doane again), it has his stamp all over it in more ways than one.  I don’t want to shame the guy for his religious beliefs, that’s none of my business.  I would like to call attention to the fact that this shit is just preachy and unfunny (but inadvertently supremely entertaining).  Hit the jump to check out the trailer for Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas.  The film hits theaters on November 14th. 

Here’s the official synopsis for Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas:

This Christmas, have your family join with Kirk Cameron’s family and dive headfirst into all the dancing, celebration, feasting, imagination, and traditions that glorify the true “reason for the season.” KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is an engaging story that will leave the audience with an understanding of a biblical basis for our celebrations, and the inspiration to stand strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season. So take in the splendor; take in the majesty; take in the story. Take it all in … and let’s put Christ back in Christmas! KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 14.
