Contrary to what other wanna be movie reviewers on this site may say, my family and I thought this was a really good movie. It's a Christmas movie! It's supposed to make people think about how Christmas effects us. Yes, this movie does have quite a bit of so called "slapstick" comedy, but I thought it was very funny. A very cheerful movie. Who doesn't want a "feel good" movie for the holidays! Everyone needs a good laugh every once in awhile! Don't miss this movie. It's great for the whole family! Maybe people shouldn't try to look so deeply into <more>
movies trying to find something wrong with them. Maybe they should just sit down with their families and a bucket of popcorn, in their own living room, cuddle up and enjoy a happy family related feel good show!
Well I saw Christmas with the Kranks and I thought it was great. This movie was funny and as well, a comedy. I think Tim and Jamie were good on set chemistry since I saw the making. This is just my opinion after all most people didn't like this. I think that was because this movie is based on a book. It is called Skipping Christmas.The Skipping Christmas book was by John Grisham and I think that the book and movie were good together. This also I would give a 9 1/2 - 10 because it was good for everyone. More like a family movie. Oh and I think that is was a little bit off from the book but <more>
I still liked it. This also contained Dan Akroyd who was also good in it... RATED: PG For mild language and Suggestive Content
Despite what everyone says about this movie being 'awful', 'the worst movie ever', and such, I enjoyed it immensely. I thought it was very funny and the end was extremely heartwarming.The best part, by far, is when Tim Allen gets a Botox injection; it is hilarious to watch him try and eat fruit salad when the peaches keep falling back from his mouth into the bowl.People claim 'half the theatre walked out' when they saw the movie. However, when I saw it not a single person walked out. Don't listen. People have a habit of exaggerating a little to put it lightly to <more>
make it seem worse than it is.Anyway, kids will adore it, and it is an excellent family film! 10/10
This movie was great. I love Tim Allen, and that's what drew me in. Yes, the audacious neighbors were a little annoying, but I think that was on purpose. This movie was not stupid. I laughed a lot during this movie, and I love the parts where Nora is trying to get the honey ham. I want to cover my eyes, because it's so frustrating, but I can't not watch it. The end is also very good and heart-warming: what Luther does for those people, how the whole neighborhood pulls together to help Luther after he's made a complete fool of himself, and the whole thing with <more>
"Marty," a.k.a. Santa Clause. I did think the part where he drove a Volkswagen bug instead of a sleigh was kind of nonessential and maybe a little dumb, but I have to give the movie a nine out of ten because it satisfied me. People who are against this movie need to just let go and let live; it is a good holiday movie, and if you weren't blinded by your uptight standards, you would enjoy it. I don't mean to offend anybody, but I felt like I was taking a personal blow when I read many of the mean and nasty comments.
Based on the book 'Skipping Christmas', Tim Allen's latest movie is about a stingy accountant and his wife who are planning to skip Christmas because they're daughter's with the Peace Corps, and they wanna save a little money and take a cruise, which will actually cost less than half of what they spent for Christmas last year. But their neighbors are aghast. Skipping Christmas? Is something like that legal? Not on Hemlock street. And when Tim refuses to put up the Frosty decoration like everyone else, that's the last straw...This is a really good movie. Tim Allen does <more>
excellent Christmas movies, and this is his best one to date. This movie teaches about love, community, the downsides of selfishness, while showing, in a way, that Christmas has become a little too materialistic of late, though it forgets to point out why we really do celebrate December 25. But it also doesn't replace the real reason for the season with Santa, either. Well-done, funny, only negative scene is in a tanning salon, but it's tolerable. I fully recommend this film to anyone who enjoys good, wholesome family entertainment. But beware of evil seven-foot Frosty the snowman roof ornaments!
The first time I watched this, I was not impressed. But after the 3rd time in TV, I bought is and have seen it many times since. It have great actors for the roles they play and tells a funny story that ends well. Recommend.
Nice little Christmas Comedy (by Garyuk-1)
My family and I went to see this film today and we all enjoyed as it seemed that most of the other people in the cinema did too. I think some of the comments here are a little harsh, yes the film is not believable but the fun side of Christmas is all about "make believe". The characters are funny, Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis are great in there roles, especially the bot-ox scene and the honey roasted ham scene. A one time or another we all would like to skip Christmas and we all have had the mad dash at the last minute to organise things. This film just takes all of those moments <more>
and pokes fun at them. It also manages to squeeze in a small moment of being aware that sometimes other people's problems are greater than yours. The film is full of different emotions and they all seem to work well, we all left with a Chrismas feeling as the last few scenes of the film are just plain old feel good moments that we all want out of to have. Just take it for what it is, a Christmas comedy and enjoy. I will be adding it to my DVD collection. 8 out of 10!
I saw the movie Christmas with the Kranks for the first time in theatres. I now own it. I really liked it. It was a light, funny, laid back movie. I don't know why so many people disliked it. I think that you have to have a certain sense of humor to think it was funny. I thought the plot was very entertaining and yes heartwarming. What's wrong with a heartwarming movie about spreading Christmas joy. Why is it so unrealistic? Is it really impossible anymore for people to be nice to one another? To be thoughtful. I think this movie portrays the values of enjoying the little things and <more>
simple things in life and perhaps this is why people automatically think this movie is dumb because they don't enjoy and embrace the little things and therefore they are quick to say these certain situations are unrealistic. All movies are a little unrealistic. So what. Like lord of the rings is realistic? come on folks. lighten up.
I have no idea why people complain about this movie. I hear more complaints about this than the current President in office. I thought that this is a good film. The story is about a family whose daughter is leaving for the holidays apparently. The family played by Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen decides to go on a cruise on Christmas Day. As the day nears, the daughter calls back saying that she'll be home for Christmas. Now the family have to celebrate Christmas or else. This movie is not very funny, but it's funny enough that I'll chuckle here or there. Mostly, I was interested <more>
in the plot line. The acting is a bit cheesy but nothing totally bad. The soundtrack is average but I like to listen to Christmas songs. The screenplay by Harry Potter director Chris Columbus could have been written better. Overall, this is a good film designed to make you feel good. I rate this film a 8/10.
