A new low has hit Kirk Cameron’s new film Saving Christmas. It has now tops IMDB’s bottom 100 list. Clearly, not what Mr. Cameron was hoping for.
Released back in November 2014, Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas is the man himself debating with his brother-in-law about how things like Christmas trees, presents, and the day itself are truly about Jesus and not based on anything else. After its release, the film has hardly become the new Christmas stable.
First critics trashed the film, saying it has lack luster presentation, huge leaps in logic in the information it gave out, and questionable character choices to name a few.
Kirk then tried to fight back after Rotten Tomatoes gave it a low rating with this quote:
‘All of you who love Saving Christmas – go rate it at Rotten Tomatoes right now and send the message to all the critics that WE decide what movies we want our families to see!”
Well, a number of people did do that and it received a better than average score. However, more people have down graded the movie back to rotten level.
If that wasn’t enough, it has now tops the IMDB’s bottom 100 list. It has now beaten out movies like Disaster Movie, Movie 43, Battlefield Earth, Ishtar, and The Hottie and the Nottie for being the worst movie according to the users of IMDB. Not only that, but the film page’s trivia section has been filled with corrections to Saving Christmas‘s arguments about how everything in Christmas always relates to Jesus.
Not everything is going bad for the movie though. It’s two-week limited release has extended and Kirk is hinting of much wider released. It also has reached 2.2 million dollars in ticket sales. So this battle may not be over.
