Then hilarity ensues when Blair decides to return on Christmas Eve to surprise her parents.
Why You Should Watch: Christmas with the Kranks is just a lot of fun! Dan Ackroyd, Cheech Marin, and Tom Poston provide excellent comedic support. It\’s also rated PG so you can share it with the nieces and nephews over a bowl of popcorn.
