Actually...just don't watch this movie
Comes in standard plastic DVD case.
There are no special features on this version.
For the first time, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) daughter, Blair (Julie Gonzalo) was not going to be spending Christmas with the family. Luther decides to book an expensive cruise for Christmas; the only catch was he and his wife had to commit to a total boycott of the holiday season. This really disturbed the seemingly Christmas obsessed community and some neighbors took it a lot harder than others. After nearly making through the holiday, of course Blair calls on Christmas eve and decides to surprise her parents by flying in. Will the Kranks be able to pull off a miracle Christmas for Blair? Will the neighbors forgive the Kranks for their lack of holiday enthusiasm? I guess you’ll have to watch and see = )
I think this is one of those movies where a lot of people don’t appreciate it the first time they watch it. I know I didn’t love this movie when I first seen it. I happened to catch it on TV the following year and I couldn’t change the channel. I have watched this movie several times now and I grow fonder of it every time.
Yes, it’s a goofy / silly / and over-the-top Christmas movie but it’s also cleaver and meaningful at its core. Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen are the perfect duo and they really make this movie shine. Also, I am not a big Dan Aykroyd fan but I loved him in this movie.
Thanks for reading my review. I hope this is helpful to you.
Many "Christmas Crisis" movies seem to focus on the slapstick, and gags for far too long. I enjoy that this movie dials down the slapstick and has a great message about friends, family and community coming together.
If being selfless at Christmas equals spending $6000, wanting to spend quality time with your wife then getting ridiculed, and making sure you "keep up with the Jones's" through superficial appearances, then wow, we should all celebrate Christmas so "selflessly".
I've never seen a more accurate depiction of how deceptively hypocritical this holiday has become. It's celebrated by Christians throughout America in just such this way. Living one way and yet justifying that all the duality is "selflessness". And we wonder why we have issues in America, and other countries hate ours so much? Get to the root of this movie and it will speak volumes.

Great quality and fantastic value for money
Also impressed with shipping
the is one of our favourite christmas films now.
what happens in film is,
When Luther and Nora Kranks only daughter leaves and goes to another country they both decide to skip Christmas this year and spend it on a cruise. Now they must face their neighbors, (who love christmas) and are very much into house decorations contest and carolers. But when their daughter calls on Christmas eve and says shes coming home for Christmas, the Kranks really get into the meaning of Holiday Rush when they have 12 hours to get Christmas set up for their daughter and her fiancée.
