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?

From Amazon.co.uk

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

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.

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 :)

The first time that I watched this DVD was on Xmas day 2005 and I have watched it every Xmas since that date. It's about a small family living in the USA who decide to save a considerable amount of money by avoiding Xmas by the parents going on an exotic cruise whist their daughter is doing the same thing in a different part of the world.

The daughter then changes her mind without giving her parents sufficient notice however by that time their neighbours and the wider community including the local authorities have already turned on them and are making their life's unbearable. When the neighbours learns that the daughter is returning and are reminded of how many 'Babysitting Favours' she had done for the entire street they decide to help the parents to prepare a street party in their home, an annual tradition.

This film is very funny throughout and has a decent cast with Tim Allen(Father), Jamie Lee Curtis (Mother) and Dan Aykroyd (Xmas Tree Sales Man) being the most well know characters.
It contains highly unrealistic events that would never happen in real life but it works very well thanks to the main cast members contribution and a well thought out script with good editing. I did not get bored of it at any point and all my family members really like it.

Well worth a watch = 8/10

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!

Such a great cast - such a feeble movie! I was really hoping for festive fun with this one, am a big fan of Tim 'The Santa Claus' Allen and love Jamie Lee Curtis too. But the incredibly feeble 'plot' and unfunny gags meant I was straight down to the charity shop with this dvd knowing I could never sit through it again! If you're after a great, funny Christmas movie that the whole family will enjoy you'd be better to go for any of the 'The Santa Claus' movies or National Lampoon's 'Christmas Vacation'.

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!

This is my absolute favourite film of all the time.... the two main characters Luther and Nora have decided that as their daughter Blair is not coming home for Xmas, they will go away for the holidays and simply skip Christmas. However, due to their Xmas mad neighbours and colleagues, this does not go down so well and a series of hilarious events unfold to try and get them into the Christmas spirit. A phone call from Blair changes everything when she announces she is coming home for Christmas so the couple go into a mad panic to try and recreate past Christmasses. They go to great lengths including stealing a Christmas tree and fighting over a Christmas ham. Eventually, the annual Christmas party happens and it proves that communities can come together for the greater good. You get a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end of this movie which is great for all the family!
