Christmas with the Kranks: It seems that every year, some lame film about Christmas decorating crops up like a bad foot fungus. Occasionally, a decent one such as “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” with its attack squirrel will appear. But this is not such an occasion. This is pain. Mental pain that grabs you like the Jaws of Life and refuses to let go, sucking you into a vortex of red and green doom. Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen star.
