Kirk Cameron (whose been on his knees more than any KKKristian out there) has taken to Facebook to beg his lemming “fans” to boost the putrid reviews of his new “Saving Christmas” movie at Rotten Tomatoes by posting false reviews and scores.
“Send the message to all the critics that WE decide what movies we want our families to see!” Cameron posted. “If 2,000 of you (out of almost 2 million on this page) take a minute to rate Saving Christmas, it will give the film a huge boost and more will see it as a result!”
Critics have panned Cameron’s movie with Alonso Duralde of The Wrap writing: Had “Saving Christmas” run any longer, Cameron would no doubt have found a way to find the divinity in Frosty, Rudolph, the Grinch, peppermint bark, the Elf on the Shelf, frosted cranberry hand soap and Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo. And Peter Sobczynski of RogerEbert.com calling Saving Christmas “Perhaps the only Christmas movie I can think of, especially of the religious-themed variety, that seems to flat-out endorse materialism, greed and outright gluttony.”
