* JerkassWoobie: As WebVideo/JonTron put it, Luther would be just the most irredeemable asshole who just goes out of his way to piss people off in other circumstances, but considering the situation, you're more likely to sympathize because of all the crap ''he'' goes through.

* TheWoobie: Both of the Kranks. But Nora especially during the ham scene.

* TheWoobie: Both of the Kranks. But Nora especially during the ham scene. And somehow the movie expected viewers to be against them for skipping Christmas.

* InformedWrongness: In the end the audience is somehow supposed to agree with the neighbours that the Kranks are being selfish in wanting to celebrate the holidays on their own terms and not be bullied into conforming with everyone else over a tacky competition. Luther insisting that they not even give any money to charity seems to have been thrown it explicitly to make this go down easier.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Conformity and commercialism are good and bullying those who think otherwise is a-okay. You know things are bad when even the movie itself points out how the tone would shift drastically if the Kranks were any [[UnfortunateImplications other religion besides Christianity]].

* EndingFatigue: The moment where Luther gives his cruise tickets to his neighbors would have made a nice note for the film to go out on. Unfortunately it drags on way past this point, and before the actual ending we get more bits including another neighbor being stuck on the Kranks' roof, the robber getting loose and then being caught by Luther, and the aforementioned BigLippedAlligatorMoment.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: As bad as this movie is, one moment that stands out from the rest. Luther offering the cruise tickets to his neighbor, Walt, and his dying wife as a Christmas present for them.



* SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}: As bad as this movie is, one moment that stands out from the rest. Luther offering the cruise tickets to his neighbor, Walt, and his dying wife as a Christmas present for them.



* PuritySue: Blair. Nobody in the movie says a single bad thing about her, and she's practically spoken of as a modern-day saint. During the last part of the movie, literally ''everyone'' in the neighborhood helps the Kranks decorate their house and set up a party solely because they learn that she's coming home.

** Some reviewers think the movie would have been much better had it been about the Kranks actually on the cruise.
