The 10 Worst Christmas Movies Ever Made
There are films that shouldn’t be missed every holiday season, and then there are films that should have never been made…and films to avoid at all costs during the holidays. Perhaps if getting a group together to binge on some egg nog, and enjoy a few good laughs are things that were not supposed to be “that kind of funny,” then put the following films at the top of your list. Still, consider yourself forewarned, especially when traversing the thin ice listed at #1, which may be one of the biggest Christmas let downs ever conceived.
10. Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas
Kirk Cameron has a heart of gold, but he’s that evangelistic type who came to his faith a little later than most, and because of the late arrival, it seemed he felt he was “behind.” He caught up by leaping so far in one direction, he forgot that not everyone shares the same world view, experiences or perspective. Now, he seems to be trekking back in the other direction while holding tight to his faith, and that’s confusion an audience gets in Saving Christmas. Sweet. Mercy. It’s a mess. There wasn’t enough content to really make it a movie-movie, so it’s full of Kirk’s musings, and too many outtakes during the closing credits. Kirk has never been shy about his faith, and neither has his sister. The difference…? People actually gravitate toward Candace, as opposed to Kirk. Folks often walk in the opposite direction.
9. Santa With Muscles
Remember when Hulk Hogan was the man? Like…really…the man. Not during the comeback of the last decade with the short-lived reboot of American Gladiators, rather the time period when movie deals were consistently pitched to him, and he was able to say yes, because he commanded some box office? Well, he made a Christmas movie back then (1996). If Jared and Jerusha Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) were behind something like this, you could possess some expectation that they would take you into a world of unexpected holiday fun; however, this film features Hulk Hogan as a s***heel millionaire, who falls down a garbage shoot, and then due to his brain damage, he believes he’s Santa Claus. It quickly dissolves into one of those stories where someone at the party offers “Once upon a time,” and everyone else in the room adds a sentence.
