Kirk Cameron's 'Saving Christmas' Movie Is Voted Worst Film of All Time

Guys, my eight-year-old self is in tears today for two reasons. The first: Kirk Cameron has definitely, no-way-of-changing-it-now, evolved from the cute teen who won the poster war on the walls in my bedroom to preachy uber douche. And, second: his new movie Saving Christmas has been rated the worst movie -- and not the worst movie to come out this season or even the worst holiday movie of all time ... but the single worst movie ever made in the history of movies.

The flick, which showed for two weekends in theaters, sank all the way to the bottom of IMDb's user-rated Bottom 100 chart. Earning just 1.3 stars out of a possible 10, it finally helped Ben Affleck and J-Lo's movie Gigli lift itself up slightly from the pits of hell, where it has resided for years.

According to the film's plot summary, "Kirk is enjoying the annual Christmas party extravaganza thrown by his sister until he realizes he needs to help out Christian, his brother-in-law who has a bad case of the bah-humbugs. Kirk's fresh look at Christmas provides Christian the chance to see Christ is where He has always been: at the center of our Christmas celebrations and traditions."

We're not sure if terrible acting or a lackluster plot and storyline are to blame for the movie's failure, but it probably didn't help that, weeks before its release, Kirk took it upon himself to call all "moms, wives, and keepers of your home" to show their joy this holiday season by cooking, singing, and telling stories.

The 44-year-old seemed to be living in the 1940s and really couldn't get his foot out of his mouth long enough to take a deep breath and realize he isn't the ideal spokesperson for 99 percent of women in this country. Probably not the best way to promote your film when you only have two weekends to prove you deserve to see the light of day in more than a few hundred theaters.

This horrific rating may not spell total doom for the movie. When Gigli came out and received the worst reviews known to man, a lot of us rented it (yes, we were still renting videos at the time) because we were curious as all hell to see the "worst movie of all time." So, there's hope for Kirk yet. Then again, at least Gigli starred two sexy people who probably don't believe women should be barefoot, pregnant, and baking cookies at all times. Oh Kirk, it's over.
