The film is based on a novel by John Grisham, Skipping Christmas. In the story, Luther Krank, a toned-down Ebenezer Scrooge, wants to skip Christmas to spend time with his wife Nora. But he misses his daughter Blair, who is in Peru doing the Peace Corps. He doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone.
The novel was so successful that a 2004 film was made based on it, with the title changed from Surviving Christmas to Christmas with the Kranks. The movie sticks fairly closely to the book, although it lacks some of the elements that make the book a great read. The book by John Grisham lamented the commercialization of Christmas and argued that there were better ways to celebrate the season.
Although Grisham is known for his legal thrillers, he has written non-legal works too. His 2001 novella Christmas with the Kranks, which stars Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, is a funny look at the over-commercialization of Christmas. The film version has been adapted into a movie, and even features Dan Aykroyd and Tim Allen.
Grisham’s legal thrillers are renowned, but he has also written books that don’t deal with the law. His 2001 novel, Skipping Christmas, was adapted into a 2004 film called Christmas with the Kranks, which starred Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis. The book was very popular and earned the film Oscar nomination. If you’re a fan of Grisham’s work, then you should definitely check out the movie.
Christmas with the Kranks is based on the John Grisham novel “Skipping Christmas,” which was published in 2001. The movie adapted the book from the novel. It has a similar setting to the book, and the movie is a spoof of the Christmas spirit. It’s not a serious novel, but it is still worth a watch.
Despite being a lawyer, John Grisham is an occasional writer. During the year he took a break from writing legal novels and turned to writing nonfiction. His 2001 novella “Christmas with the Kranks” was a bestselling novel, and the movie was adapted from the book in 2004. In the film, he portrayed the characters as children, and his characters were both wacky.
In the book, the Kranks’ Christmas celebration is not as festive as they expect. In the movie, the Kranks’ neighbors are upset when they realize that the Kranks don’t buy a Christmas tree. As a result, they don’t have any Christmas decorations in their home. The neighbors also are upset that the Kranks don’t support their annual fundraising events.
