Submerged in recycled slapstick and mean-spirited characters, "Christmas with the Kranks" is a humbug of a holiday season comedy.

Tim Allen having Botox is worth a laugh or two - and a sub-plot with M. Emmett Walsh and Elizabeth Franz concludes in a sincerely heartwarming manner - but this Christmas comedy is woefully inept at capitalising on its premise's inherent satire of consumerism and instead tries to turn its lead into a modern-day Scrooge. The results are maudlin and hollower than Donald Trump's head.
