The Huffington Post is huffing about the release of a new Christmas movie, Christmas with a Capital C:
The clearly provacative straight-to-DVD movie has the atheist blogosphere abuzz with the pre-season anti-Christian rants of the War on Christmas. Set in a small Alaska town, the trailer alone is making the Sarah Palin jokes run wild. The story tells the tale of a former rival of the Christian lead who has come to the small Alaska town to seek the removal of a Nativity scene from the town square. We assume he loses (who stars as the ACLU lead, we wonder?).
â€œChristmas with a Capital Câ€ was filmed in Seward the last of February and early March. The movie stars Daniel Baldwin (the second-oldest of the Baldwin brothers) and Ted McGinley (from â€œMarried â€¦ with Children), plus a slew of Seward extras, including high school students, stay-at-home moms and guys standing in the cold rain for hours without a jacket. The straight-to-DVD movie centers around two high school rivals â€“ Baldwin and McGinley â€“ at odds over a Nativity scene in a city building. Baldwin plays the antagonist, or the Grinch, who experiences an eventual change of heart. â€œThis is a feel-good movie, with a lot of conflict and the theme of the Grinch finally coming home,â€ said Anchorage-based executive producer David Cuddy. â€œThe final scene is like â€˜Itâ€™s a Wonderful Life,â€™ where his character melts and becomes a good guy.â€
