... take your kids to see Christmas with the Kranks, the true classic of the holiday season! The film follows Luther Krank (played by everyone's favorite everyman Tim Allen) in his misadventures involving the holiday known as Christmas. Jamie Lee Curtis plays Nora Morgenstern-Krank, a successful lawyer who joins her husband in his boycott of Christmas.
Zaniness is abound in this high-flying rip-roaring send-up of the classic holiday farce. Dan Aykroyd is perfect in his role as Vic Frohmeyer, a sadistic midwestern Christian bent on imposing his red-state values of Community on the libertarian Krank family. Some 'frohmeyer' he is!
This film had all the laughs of The Santa Claus II, plus Dan Aykroyd.
