The Christmas Candle
Rick Santorum's Christmas movie appears to be every bit as successful as his political career. The Christmas Candle has flopped at the box office as well as being panned by critics.
The movie takes place in the fictitious English village of Gladbury, and is being promoted as “a timeless holiday film for the entire family.” The New York Daily News begs to differ:
“This odd Dickens-meets-Sunday-school movie is as artless as the setup is muddled.”
The New York Post: “This throwback, made-for-TV-style film takes the easy way out in a cheesy climax, but its resolute quaintness may appeal to the kind of viewers who regard electricity as disturbingly newfangled.”
Poor Rick. But on the bright side, how many other politicians have a new word named after them?
