Holiday Movie Review: Christmas With the Kranks
Available on Netflix (2004)
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.
I watch this movie every year. And while my husband isn’t such a fan, I have to say that I do enjoy it. However, I always wonder why the community doesn’t let them celebrate Christmas in their own way. But I also wonder why they can’t give to the people that deserve it. It all ends up fairly heart warming, but it is a slap stick good time!
