For the first time, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) daughter, Blair (Julie Gonzalo) was not going to be spending Christmas with the family. Luther decides to book an expensive cruise for Christmas; the only catch was he and his wife had to commit to a total boycott of the holiday season. This really disturbed the seemingly Christmas obsessed community and some neighbors took it a lot harder than others. After nearly making through the holiday, of course Blair calls on Christmas eve and decides to surprise her parents by flying in. Will the Kranks be able to pull off a miracle Christmas for Blair? Will the neighbors forgive the Kranks for their lack of holiday enthusiasm? I guess you’ll have to watch and see = )
I think this is one of those movies where a lot of people don’t appreciate it the first time they watch it. I know I didn’t love this movie when I first seen it. I happened to catch it on TV the following year and I couldn’t change the channel. I have watched this movie several times now and I grow fonder of it every time.
Yes, it’s a goofy / silly / and over-the-top Christmas movie but it’s also cleaver and meaningful at its core. Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen are the perfect duo and they really make this movie shine. Also, I am not a big Dan Aykroyd fan but I loved him in this movie.
Thanks for reading my review. I hope this is helpful to you.
