Ask Movie Slate - Episode 222 - Christmas with the Kranks

Commissioned by :iconssjcharon:

The idea behind this one was to make Movie Slate cut completely with the holiday season. Have her go "OK, that's it, fuck this" so the one and only movie we could be doing this with had to be Christmas with the Kranks. I have to say, it was quite relaxing to work on this picture. After the couple of weeks I've had it was quite enjoyable to get some of my inner Bob Ross satisfied. Too bad my internet died out halfway through working on this one! That sure ruined the calm, let me tell ya.

"Christmas with the Kranks" is one of the most unlikeable, unpleasant and unbearable movies I've ever had the misfortune to watch. Not only is it a terrible comedy with no laughs and bad acting, but it's also one of the worst misrepresentations of Christmas I have ever seen in my life. The message of peer pressure always winning makes it for a very unnerving feel. It's like if you don't celebrate Christmas just like everyone else does, you're bound to be assaulted, harassed and attacked by those around you. You know you're dealing with pure shit when not even the poster can be salvaged.

I'm really trying to think about anything positive the movie has, and maybe I could say that the thing with the thief and that guy who plays a Santa Claus who drives a car were kind of alright. That's not saying much but in a movie like this one I'll definitely take it! But even with that this film commits the unforgivable sin of bad movies. It's not just bad, it's also boring as hell. If you want a bad but fun Christmas movie, watch "Jingle all the Way", or "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians". This one isn't even worth it.

"Christmas with the Kranks" is an unpleasant-looking movie that is only made worse by its tone-deaf direction, dated writing, unlikeable characters, bad acting, and unengaging story. It's a complete log that's only useful to be burned at the fireplace.

I hope you guys enjoy the picture!

Ha! I get it - it's a Christmas Vacation!

Definitely the better way to spend Christmas than Christmas with the Kranks...
