Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas

Kirk Cameron, for one, is pretty sure there's a war against Christmas. So he's starring in this cheapjack family comedy (shot at his own house and starring his own family) that "provides a Biblical basis for our time-honored traditions and celebrations" while standing "strongly against a culture that wants to trivialize and eliminate the faith elements of this holy season." That does sound hilarious. In it Kirk plays a guy named Kirk, who is enjoying his sister's annual Christmas party extravaganza when he realizes that his bah-humbug brother-in-law Christian (see if you can follow the subtle metaphors here) has forgotten the reason for the season. Of course it's up to Kirk to put the Christ back in Christmas--which basically consists of a condescending, 60-minute lecture by Cameron, delivered in the front seat of a parked car. Spoiler alert: Jesus would want you to max out your credit card! 80 minutes PG.
