Film Review

It is hard to understand why this simple and fun Christmas movie was the subject of such heavy-handed criticism. At the time of these comments, the movie was rated 4.6 stars. After checking the ratings of other Christmas movies, this seems blatantly unfair. It's definitely not in the league of It's a Wonderful Life, but it certainly bats in the same ballpark as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, which currently boasts a more appropriate 7.2 stars.Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis both give great performances in this movie. As the empty-nested parents of departing Blair Krank, they show typical-but-humorous reactions to the pending holiday absence of their 23-year-old daughter. Many American households could resemble that of the Kranks as the baby birds begin to take wing. It's easy to understand how the departure of your children can have a huge impact on the celebration of Christmas traditions.While it is true that the movie doesn't pull any punches, we should al…

In keeping with many Christmas-themed movies, "Christmas With The Kranks" has the almost obligatory heartwarming scene at the end where a person is magically transformed in some mysterious way and comes to realize the real meaning of Christmas (well, not the "real" real meaning – not the birth of Jesus, I mean – but the other "real" meaning; you know, being kind and generous and thinking about others – which is fine.) It was a nice ending as Luther Krank (played by Tim Allen) sacrifices something that was very important to him (a Caribbean cruise) in order to brighten the lives of an elderly couple with health issues and seeks nothing from them in return. Nice. I'm glad he did that. But aside from the obligatory Christmas transformation of the "scrooge" character, there was very little charm in this movie. As a parody of the secular Christmas I suppose it made some points, but it wasn't an especially fun or pleasant movie to watch, in …

Tim Allen (Luther Krank) is having the holidays bring him down and want to get away from all the rain and the work of preparing a regular Christmas. He then shows his wife (Nora Krank) Jamie Lee Curtis a cruise ship that will amount to three thousand dollars which will save them money from the usual costs of Christmas.With their daughter (Blair Krank) Julie Gonzalo being away at the Peace Core they decide to make a go of going on the cruise and not doing anything that has to do with Christmas including their yearly donations. Their neighbor (Vic Frohmeyer) Dan Aykroyd has a problem with them leaving and not expecting it they get a call from Blair saying she has met a guy and she wants to marry him and bring him home for Christmas. Luther and Nora are ecstatic and try and perform a Christmas miracle to get their neighborhood Christmas party together before she gets back.Allen is really funny in this movie and it was fun to see him in a Christmas movie. Last seeing him in the movie &#x2…
