Movie 353- Christmas Movies- Christmas with the Kranks

Directed by Joe Roth
Starring Tim Allen
              Jamie Leigh Curtis
              Dan Ackroyd

You're skipping Christmas! Isn't that against the law?

A break from the frenetic activity that surrounds Christmas is what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, for once, they'll skip the holiday. They'll nix the tree, all the ornaments and their rooftop Frosty. They'll even forgo the chore of hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash. That's the plan, anyway. But can they deal with the fallout from crestfallen neighbors and even their own family?

This wasn't a great movie, but it wasn't bad the thing that is hard to get past for me was why everyone seemed to care so much why they were skipping Christmas, the problem may have been with the way they went about telling their friends and neighbors, but really most of them should have minded their own business and got on with their own holiday plans.  But that is really looking into the story too much.  There are some really funny moments.  I would recommend reading the book instead of the movie.
