A mirthless movie as fresh as last year's fruit cake, Christmas with the Kranks is a coarse, garish comedy that promotes conformity. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Finally alone for the holidays, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) plan to eschew the Christmas traditions and take a cruise in the Caribbean instead. This doesn't sit well with their Christmas-obsessed neighbors Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Aykroyd) and Walt Scheel (M. Emmet Walsh), who are determined to win the annual "best decorated street" competition, and the Kranks soon find themselves social outcasts because of their lack of Christmas spirit.

Audience Reviews for Christmas With the Kranks

  • Dec 06, 2012
    From Chris Columbus comes the family holiday film Christmas with the Kranks. Based on a John Grisham novel, when their daughter goes off on a Peace Corps mission for the holidays the Kanks decide to skip Christmas in order to go on a Caribbean cruise; but the neighborhood doesn't take kindly to the Kranks' abstaining from the community's Christmas festivities. Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Dan Aykroyd form a solid cast, however their performances are lackluster. Additionally, the comedy is too broad and gets a bit bizarre at times. The tone of the film is also off, as if the filmmakers don't have a clear message to tell. Christmas with the Kranks is a messy and uneven film that doesn't have much holiday cheer to it.

    Painfully excruciating, Jamie Lee Curtis should have won a razzie for her performance, it's retarded.
