I have been a fan of Kirk Cameron since I was a kid watching him on Growing Pains. I have been blessed with the chance to be a part of a phone conference with him to discuss his new movie KIRK CAMERON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS which will hit the theaters on Friday, November 14th thanks to Flyby Promotions. Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas is a movie about reminding people the true meaning behind Christmas even through the wide range of decorations and gifts.
Kirk created this movie because in our society today there is a clear division between those who either celebrate it and those who don’t celebrate it at all in the ‘traditional’ sense of the word. There are people who believe in God, and feel that the world has become too worried about decorations and gifts to really remember the true reason behind the season so they don’t celebrate the holiday at all. Then on the other hand we have people who celebrate it with great gusto, but yet tend to not put very much focus on the reason for the season. Kirk’s mission with his movie is to not stop people from decorating and celebrating the Christmas holiday, but to put a different shift in how they celebrate it.
In his movie KIRK CAMERON’s SAVING CHRISTMAS, he literally goes through the Bible stories and really breaks down the reason for all aspects of the Christmas season. Ironically, I felt this was the adult version of the kid’s movie Buck Denver Asks…Why Do We Call It Christmas that my kids watched and reviewed. I honestly thought Kirk’s movie would be more kid friendly, but it wasn’t at all.
KIRK CAMERSON’S SAVING CHRISTMAS is a very well made movie. It’s filled with valuable and real advice and knowledge. I feel the cover makes it misleading as a fun and hip movie to watch as a family. When in reality, it’s a serious heart to heart conversation between Kirk and his brother-in-law in the movie. The way they set it up, it’s like we’re a bunch of bystanders listening to the conversation too with a behind the scenes look into Kirk’s complete thoughts.
This movie is a good movie to watch if you’re looking for a way to explain the society’s viewpoint of the holiday season verses the Biblical standpoint. I feel any Christian adult would enjoy watching it. I think a teenager may be old enough to appreciate this movie as well. Due to the lack of entertaining aspects, the younger kids lost interest really quick.
