About the Movie

When their only daughter Blair leaves the family nest, Luther and Nora Krank (Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis) decide to book an island cruise to beat the yuletide blues and just skip the holidays. But their decision to boycott tradition has the whole neighborhood in an uproar, and when Blair calls on Christmas Eve to announce a surprise visit with her new fiancée, the Kranks have just twelve hours to perform a miracle and pull themselves and their neighbors together to throw the best celebration ever! With fast-paced energy and support from Dan Aykroyd, Cheech Marin, Jake Busey and M. Emmet Walsh, this hilarious adaptation of John Grisham's best-selling novel, "Skipping Christmas" has become "an instant family classic!" (Gorman Woodfin, CBN)

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: One of the worst Christmas movies in years. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Purports to kindle the warm glow of love for humankind in our hearts but actually reaffirms that the trappings of the holiday season are all that really matter. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Filled with overly processed situations it tries to sell with manic energy, Kranks is canned, hammy and rolling as fast as it can. – Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This movie reeks. – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

It's an ok movie,the acting was good, the story was very good and has more details on the story. But, the problem is that I don't find it funny though and it shouldn't really be comedy though.
