Christmas With The Kranks (2004)
A movie which celebrated a grim form of ultra American conservatism instead of Krimbo, this practically invited anyone with a ounce of rebellion to slip out into the snowy darkness and open a vein.
Tim Allen (yes, him) and Jamie Lee Curtis plays the empty-nesters who change their traditional Yuletide plans to the vicious displeasure of the neo-Nazi neighbours. Ok, alright then, good ‘ole American folk.
What we said:“You come away from this awesome pile of cheap Christmas sentiment and craven conformity thinking Scrooge may have got it right all along.”
