Countdown to Christmas! A little something fun.....to READ or Watch
Let's get the holiday started!! And what better way to start off than with a laugh?
Lawyer-thriller writer extraordinaire John Grisham took a well-earned break from high-powered attorneys to pen this masterful look at the commercialization of Christmas! Luther Krank decides for once to put himself (and his wife, Nora) FIRST and "save" some money by ignoring all things Christmas and heading off, just the two of them, on a well-earned vacation cruise. But Luther is soon surprised to learn how hard it is to just take a year off. Finally, like all good Christmas-scorners in literature, Luther finds out it's not really about the money...... Skipping Christmas, by John Grisham.
Superstar funny guy Tim Allen takes the lead as Luther Krank in the movie adaptation with Jamie Lee Curtis as his long-suffering wife, Nora. It's worth watching just for his secretary's response to the "skipping Christmas" idea alone! Sure you can quibble over wooden characters or other high-brow stuff. Or, like someone once said about James Bond movies, just park your brains under the seat and enjoy it! This is a FUN movie and one that I enjoy every year! Christmas With the Kranks.
