The premise had much more potential than what was given. The movie cops out, for a feel good Christmas loving ending.

Christmas with the Kranks is a disastrous "holiday" movie, with nothing to offer. The Direction is awful. The Screenplay is worse with no funny parts at all. Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis give terrible performances and lack chemistry. I can't believe this was adapted from a John Grisham novel. It is a complete waste of talent and not worth your time.

Very funny, an awesome addition to holiday films

I saw this movie just after it had hit DVD. This was a very funny movie the first time I saw it I really got a laugh out of the back and fourth between Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Luther realizes that this is the perfect opportunity to leave it all behind and take his wife on a luxurious cruise of the Caribbean but in order to truly appreciate the Christmas cruise they will have to boycott Christmas altogether which sounds easy at first but they realize their Christmas happy neighbors, co-workers and town are not going to stand for ...
