Christmas with the Kranks

Review By John C.

Christmas with the Kranks is probably one of the most underrated Christmas movies I have ever seen. Scoring a surprisingly low rating of only 5% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s to bad more people wouldn’t give it a chance. Having read the original book, Skipping Christmas by John Grisham, I decided to watch the movie a few years back, and have watched it every year since. Though the beginning and middle include a lot of funny physical humor, the ending is charming, sweet and full of heart, making it a Christmas comedy that mirrors the great John Hughes. Despite what you’ve heard, give it a chance, and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
