TRAILER TANTRUM-Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas.


So, let's review:
 "They want to replace Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings, whatever that means".
1. Actually, it's whatever they mean.
2. Happy Holidays means It's the Holidays and I hope they are happy. Season's Greetings means's a season and I have greetings for...
You know what? I'll spot you Season Greetings. But Happy Holidays, SELF EXPLANATORY!

"Santa just kicked Jesus out of the sled and went Rollin', Rollin', Rollin',"
Congrats Limp Bizkit fans. Your favorite band just became a Dad Joke. 
You may now use your old CD copy of "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" as a coaster because they are not coming back from this one.
 (Also, for a film billed as a comedy, this is the only moment in the trailer that has anything that remotely resembles a joke.)

 The shot of Cameron staring into the camera in his Santa suit makes it look like he's auditioning for the "Silent Night, Deadly Night" reboot.

And the whole thing climaxes with Cameron intoning about how he and his family will help us rediscover the true meaning of Christmas while white people dance in extreme slow motion like it's Christmas in The Matrix. And the whole thing looks to have the same entertainment value as an old VHS copy of an episode of The 700 Club.
On the plus side, this trailer gives me all the excuse I need to spend all of December in an Ether Frolic.
