    Synopsis


    Christmas With the Kranks
    Based on John Grisham's novel Skipping Christmas, Christmas With the Kranks revolves around Nora (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Luther Krank's (Tim Allen) decision to put their normally fanatical enthusiasm for the holidays aside for a tropical cruise. With their daughter in Peru with the Peace Corps, the Kranks believe it just isn't worth it; thus, no presents, Christmas trees, or decorations of any kind will adorn their house to the great consternation of their neighbor Vic (Dan Aykroyd). Just as it looks like Christmas will be successfully skipped, Blair (Julie Gonzalo) throws a major kink into her plans when she suddenly has a change of heart and announces she'll be coming home for Christmas after all. The film ran into troubles early on in production when Ben Affleck's similar sounding bomb Surviving Christmas won the race to the theaters, forcing the filmmakers to depart from the book title in favor of the catchy Kranks one. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

      Christmas withthe Kranks

      It's not a Christmas movie following the lines of way to many "Christmas Carol" movies. Tim Allen was very good in his good guy, or at least trying, persona, almost equally as good as the not so good guy. Movie is about an empty-nester couple trying to handle their first Christmas as empty-nester. Story line runs through many emotions from selfpity, to selfishness to finally an awakening to realizing how much better sharing and unselfishness can make Christmas.

      Underrated, but good Christmas Movie

      Christmas with the Kranks is a new Christmas favorite for me. Though a bit underrated, the movie has the heart of a Christmas classic - perfectly capturing both the often-hectic pre-Christmas rush to complete each tradition and the true spirit of togetherness that shows itself during the season. If you've never seen it before, definitely give it a shot.

      I realized that we did not own this movie, and it is one of our favorite Christmas movies. I used my Birthday Dollars to buy it. We are looking forward to watching it next December, without any commercials!

      Funny, if somewhat silly, movie about getting buried in the details and forgetting about the deeper meaning of Christmas. Was a big hit with my visiting family - so I sent them all copies (from BestBuy.com, naturally!)

      I used to not like the movie very much but after watching it for a million times on TV this past season I actually started enjoying it. Tim Allen makes great Christmas movies. :)
