Slapstick humor gets a full-body workout in Christmas with the Kranks. Critics were unanimous in their derision, and John Grisham must have gnashed his teeth over what studio-boss-turned-director Joe Roth did to his bestselling novel Skipping Christmas, to which this broad-stroked comedy bears little or no resemblance. The title characters are played by Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, who decide to skip Christmas because their daughter's in Peru with the Peace Corps. Thus begins a rabid program of enforced conformity when their neighbors (led by Dan Aykroyd) coerce the Kranks into changing their holiday attitude--a change that comes easily when the daughter announces she'll be home for Christmas after all. Imagine if a suburban lynch mob said "Have a Merry Christmas or we'll kill you," and you'll get some idea of what spending Christmas with the Kranks is really like. And if you laughed at the frozen cat, you're probably on Santa's "naughty" list. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Festive comedy featuring an all-star cast, including Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd. The Kranks have always celebrated a picture-perfect Christmas. But with their only daughter, Blair (Julie Gonzalo), away from home on her Peace Corps assignment, Nora (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Luther (Tim Allen) are suffering from empty nest syndrome and decide to skip Christmas in favour of a Caribbean cruise. But their neighbours, led by Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Akroyd), take Christmas very seriously and are none too happy about the Kranks' boycott. In this neighbourhood where every house is decorated to the hilt and has a Frosty on the roof, skipping Christmas is virtually a crime. And just as the Kranks are preparing for their Christmas Day departure, they get a call from their daughter who announces that she is coming home for Christmas after all. Suddenly, all systems are go for their annual Christmas Eve party and a normal highly-festive holiday. Will the Kranks be able to pull together a perfect Christmas for Blair in just a few hours, or will she discover their plan to skip Christmas?

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Classic 17 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this movie!!! For the last few years, I've watched it while putting up the Christmas tree - it really puts me in a festive mood. Sure, it's a bit silly, but isn't that part of the fun? There are some genuinely funny moments in it, like Tim Allen's suntan and eyebrow disaster, but I really love the way it all comes together to work out well for the Kranks.
Light-hearted, funny, and warm. Really enjoy it every year. If you enjoy "The Santa Clause", you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to get you in a festive mood! 23 Oct 2011
I borrowed this film off a friend one christmas, and because i loved it so much, she bought me a copy!
The film really gets me in a festive mood, and has plenty of moments for laughter.
This film should be appreciated for its fun factor and the fact it is a cheesy festive film with decent enough acting and story line to enjoy watching it over and over!
It's a film I watch every year close to christmas along with Elf and The Family Stone :)

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of festive fun 22 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This is a reasonably watchable movie, perfect for the days leading up to Christmas when the madness starts to get to you!
It is well acted and you can sympathise with the characters' decision to escape for the festive season. Unfortunately, this decision doesn't go down too well with their neighbours who expect them to keep up the normal Christmas traditions.
There are the usual cringing and wincing moments -enough to keep the watcher entertained.
It is well worth a viewing, if only to enjoy the part where the Tim Allen character has botox. Classic! It made me cry with laughter!

In my household the Christmas season doesn't truly start without having watched Christmas with the Kranks. It's a fun movie about a couple trying to skip Christmas because their daughter has gone to join the peace corps, but the only problem is they are from a very traditional christmassy neighbourhood, who are adamant they will follow the christmas traditions i.e. putting up frosty the snowman. Great fun, never seems to get old (we have had it for five years now) and full of true christmassy spirit! We absolutely love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dire Xmas movie. 12 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Buy Elf.

This clanger sucks like a humbug on a cold day.
Bad acting, rubbish gags, Grisham must be recoiling in utter contempt.
Nuff said.
