Kirk Cameron’s one-man attempt to try and salvage the reputation of Saving Christmas has well and truly failed. In fact Saving Christmas is now officially the worst movie of all-time, and one of the world’s most popular film websites has the evidence to prove it.
Saving Christmas, which was released last month to scathing reviews, currently has a 1.3 rating on IMDB. Just in case you didn’t know, that’s out of 10. Which means that pretty much everyone who went to see the film despised it with a passion. In order for Saving Christmas to reach this measly sum, it needed to have at least 1,500 votes. A quick look at Saving Christmas’ IMDB page shows that 1,818 users have made their feelings on the film known. The ratings report also reveals that the average rating for the 1,269 males who reviewed it was just 1.1. However, female IMDB users were a tad kinder to the film, as the 228 women who decided to voice their thoughts on Saving Christmas gave it a 2.3. Either way you look at it though, critics and audiences alike have unanimously savaged Saving Christmas.
For the uninitiated, Saving Christmas is an American faith-based film that stars Kirk Cameron and Darren Doane. Saving Christmas vowed to put the "Christ" back in Christmas, but along the way it has also been admonished by pretty much everyone who has seen it. Kirk Cameron stars as Kirk, and he decides to take his brother-in-law, Christian White, played by Darren Doane, on a tour to show him that various popular elements of Christmas are in fact biblical. This includes Kirk Cameron proclaiming his views on Santa Claus, the three wise men, and the reason why Christmas is celebrated on December 25. While it’s probably hard to remain impartial in the face of such adversity, you can check out the trailer for Saving Christmas below to try and make up your own mind on the film.
It wasn’t meant to be this way for Kirk Cameron, though. After Saving Christmas was roundly lambasted upon its original release, the actor decided to gather his troops together to fight back against this criticism. Kirk Cameron took to his Facebook page and asked his legion of fans to give it a higher rating on Rotten Tomatoes. For a brief time, it worked too. Cameron’s 1.9 million Facebook fans managed to get its score up to 94%. However the internet soon fought back against Kirk Cameron’s devious attempt to "storm the gates of Rotten Tomatoes!" and it now has an audience score of 32% and an average rating of 1.9/10 from critics.
But despite all of this animosity, Saving Christmas has already grossed $2.5 million from its $500,000 budget and it is set to hit 100 extra theaters this weekend. Does this mean that Kirk Cameron really did Save Christmas?
