(TENNESSEAN) — When actor Kirk Cameron shares his conservative beliefs with the media, his name often lands in the headlines. But this weekend, the only place he wants people to see him is in the movie theater.
Cameron’s Christmas movie “Saving Christmas” was released in theaters last week for a limited two-week run.
“It’s a very pro-Christmas tree movie,” Cameron said. “It’s pro-St. Nicholas, pro-Christmas trees, pro-nativities and pro-feasting, dancing, celebrations, singing and laughing at Christmas. I do love it.”

In the movie, Cameron is charged with giving his brother-in-law a shot of Christmas spirit. Cameron’s sister, played by his real sister Bridgette Cameron, is throwing a Christmas party, complete with dinner and decorations. Her husband goes to sulk in the driveway because he thinks the party and modern day Christmas traditions take away from the true meaning of Christmas.
“My job is to go out there and help him save Christmas for his family,” said Cameron, who launched his acting career as a teenager on the series “Growing Pains.”
