O'Toole kept living
Hardcore lolz here, Abbbottt. You're a treasure.
I actually showed Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage in class and O'Toole's performance inspired a student to diagnose a new ailment: Humpty Dumpty Dementia.
But did you know there's another Kinkade movie? It's called Christmas Lodge and seems a correction of Cottage. If you look at the IMDb and Amazon reviews of the latter, then you'll discover that many Kinkadians were upset at all the swears and an attempted dad/son crotch grab. Lodge contains amped Jesus content and no swears. Also no respected actors to keep on living after their star turns here. Can you dig it?

I haven't seen TKCC (as the kids call it) but LOL @ Chris Elliot's wig in the trailer

Sorry, I just now noticed the request to comment.
I don't think the Kinkade industry has anything to do with art or technique; I think it has to do with selling an elaborate, porned out certificate of happiness and achievement to what is left of the middle class.

anyway there's that benjamin essay art in the age of mechanical reproduction which I don't remember anything about, there are all those 'artists' cities in china where you can pay somebody like $50 to paint anything you want including a van gogh, it's pretty interesting, would post more about if I had a more coherent theory of art

There's a John Baldessari piece I remember from the Met retrospective where he basically hired a few sort of ordinary landscape-type painters who sold their paintings at a local fair and got them to paint from photographs he had taken. The result was very well-painted and very contemporary-looking paintings -- of course Baldessari had chosen the composition, but the technique was as good as anything you'd expect to see from the latest hot young painter.
