Christmas with the Kranks


USA 2004, 95 minutes
Dir. Joe Roth
Genres: Family / Christmas


Aroview: A yuletide chucklefest, with Allen and Curtis playing a suburban couple, the Kranks, who decide to opt out of Christmas celebrations when their daughter plans to be away for the season.

This money-saving exercise arouses great disgust from the Kranks neighbours, and when family plans are suddenly changed, they must engage in a frenzy of last minute festive catching-up. Never developing into the comedy of mean-spiritedness and anti-commericialism it promises, this still has its highlights, with Allen (THE SANTA CLAUSE) renewing his skill at the 'Christmas' genre. Note: believe it or not, this is originally based on a John Grisham novel.
