Why did Gav dare Daniel and Corky to watch Saving Christmas“Hi, guys!  Listening to you heathens hilariously bash that Bible-bashing classic God’s Not Dead, I thought that you may want to review a real test of willpower, in the form of the cinematic turd that is Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas.  I stumbled upon it last year, and I still haven’t fully recovered.  I guarantee that if you watch it in December, it will ruin your Christmas.  Apologies a thousand times.  I hope we can still be friends after this?”

IMDB synopsis: “His annual Christmas party faltering thanks to his cynical brother-in-law, former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron attempts to save the day by showing him that Jesus Christ remains a crucial component of the over-commercialized holiday.”
