Watch Saving Christmas - Alternative Versions.
For those of us who have watched Kirk Cameron pontificate on the
wonders of the banana, or read his musings on the legitimacy of the
existence of fire-breathing dragons, we know that Kirk Cameron himself
is comedy gold. One might expect more hilarity from Cameron in Saving
Christmas, but Cameron actually intentionally tries to build a comedy
here, and the result is an unfunny, unfocused, interminable mess.
The film begins with an uncomfortable scene involving Kirk Cameron
sitting in a chair, lecturing at the audience. "They don't want us to
love Christmas," Cameron declares authoritatively, never bothering to
define exactly who "they" are. Cameron drones on for several more
minutes, and at this point in the film, I heard a kid in the back of
the theater yawn loudlyperhaps an audible protest that this film would
not be the exciting romp promised on the poster.
Finally, the film cuts away from Kirk Cameron, and we see several
characters enjoying a Christmas party. But then we see Kirk Cameron
again, the film freezes, and we hear Kirk Cameron narrating about
himself: "That's meKirk!" More lecturing ensues.
Eventually, a character by the name of Christian (almost as clever as
"Josh Wheaton"), a Christian himself, despondently finds his way to a
car, apparently disillusioned by the materialism of Christmas. Enter
Kirk Cameron, who enters the vehicle and does what he does bestmore
The majority of the film takes place in this car as Kirk lectures to
Christian, with occasional cutaways to Biblical imagery. Cameron tries
to make the case that Christmas traditions, such as celebratory trees
and gifts, all somehow originated with Christianity, not paganism.
(Never mind the fact that ancient paganism predates Christianity.)
"Last time I checked, God created the winter solstice!" is the type of
asinine reasoning you'll hear from Kirk Cameron throughout the film.
Cameron's facts are both dubious and sparse, and his connections are
spuriousbut Christian is nevertheless invariably blown away by Kirk
Cameron's apparently amazing insight.
Perhaps aware that interminable lecturing on its own would be
unbearable for an audience, the film provides characters with quirky
personalities in an effort to break up the tedium. In particular, we
are treated to a scene back in the house of two characters rambling
schizophrenically as they drink hot chocolate. It has nothing to do
with Christian's story, it makes the movie feel unfocused, it goes on
for far too long, and if my theater is any indication, it is not funny
at all. In fact, there was dead silence in my theater throughout the
entire run of this "comedy" film.
The film ends with a dance sequence that feels like it lasts ten
minutes, as well as multiple, gratuitous blooper scenesI suppose for
no reason other than to pad the running time. Just when you think it's
finally over, we see Kirk Cameron again, and he continues to lecture
the audiencethis time about how materialism is just fine, because
Jesus came to us in a material body, after all.
One gets the impression that Kirk Cameron actually started reading his
own Bible, was disturbed by what he found (such as Jesus' instruction
to "go sell your possessions and give to the poor"), and produced this
film as a desperate justification for his own hypocrisy.
At my theater, nobody laughed, and nobody stayed for the end credits.
This purported comedy film fails at every level. If you're really
looking for a laugh, go back and take a look at what Kirk Cameron and
Ray Comfort have to say about the glorious design of the banana.
