Luther Krank (Tim Allen) is sick of the commercialism of Christmas. Nora (Jamie Lee Curtis) his wife decide with Luther to just skip the holidays. No tree, no ornaments, and most of all, no rooftop light up Frosty. They’re even going to cancel their annual neighborhood Christmas Eve Party. Their daughter is away, and they have a chance to just skip it, and head out on Christmas Day for a cruise. But the neighbors are worried about their lack of Christmas spirit and try to force them to shape up and put up the Frosty! But when their daughter decides she’s coming home and bringing her brand new fiance to meet the family and celebrate the holidays, they are forced to somehow put together a Christmas with almost no time, and the stores are empty. Fortunately, the neighbors get into the mood and try to help put together a last minute Christmas for Blair (Julie Gonzalo).

This is a very funny film. It was a big mainstream film back in 2004 and is shown every Christmas. Tim Allen is at his funniest in this film, and Dan Aykroyd is hysterical as his neighbor. The whole bunch is really good. Luther has an epiphany finally, and realizes what it’s all about, and makes one of the grandest gestures ever. It’s a heartwarming moment, and in the middle of this very funny comedy, there is a bit of true heart. It’s a really good Christmas film, and one I highly recommend!
