Released into theaters in 2014, Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas sparked backlash when the film’s star (Cameron) asked his Facebook followers to make a point of posting reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Saving Christmas had a flat 0% critical rating and while there was a short-lived improvement in the user scores, the Internet demolished the film. This led to it being the lowest rated movie on IMDB by the end of its theatrical run.
Saving Christmas is an oddly paced and framed defense of commercial, American Christmas traditions and characters. Cameron defends everything from Santa to Christmas trees to expensive presents and feasting. It’s the epitome of a so-bad-its-good movie experience and ripe for the What Happened?! treatment.
Comedian Dale Maxfield and his team of riffers present Saving Christmas: What Happened?! – live film riffs with comedic commentary and behind-the-scenes info. We’ll look at the series of decisions that led to this disastrous movie, followed by a full riff of the movie by Dale’s team, Cinemasochists!
