Kirk Cameron Film Named Worst Ever
From darkhorizon, The recent "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" has officially become the the worst movie of all-time according to the film database siteThe IMDB. 4,918 users have voted in the poll with the movie pulling a 1.5/10 rating, overtaking the legendarily terrible "Birdemic: Shock and Terror" at 1.8/10.
The faith-based "Saving Christmas" stars Kirk Cameron and Darren Doane in which the pair play brothers-in-law with Kirk's character showcasing to Doane's that various popular elements of Christmas are actually Biblical.
Cameron's film did not go well with critics, garnering a rare 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and an 18/100 on Metacritic - to be fair to Cameron, the woeful Ben Affleck comedy "Surviving Christmas" several years ago didn't score much better.
After the initial wave of critical reviews, Cameron took to social media to rally his fans for support by asking them to give the film a high public rating on Rotten Tomatoes. When word got around about his attempt to 'rig the game' as it were, detractors fought back and now the film has an audience score of 32%.
The film has grossed $2.5 million from a $500,000 budget, so Cameron is likely ho-ho-hoing his way into profitability.
