* 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.

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

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

* 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.

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: What could have been a wickedly sharp satire on the kind of people who have made Christmas the beast it is gets ruined when the movie expects us to be on their side.

Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeDiabetes: The baby-Einstein influenced score that accompanies most of the movie. Special mention goes to the scene where Luther looks at how much is spent on Christmas every year.

* UnfortunateImplications: The very fact that not celebrating Christmas is seen as some kind of moral or even legal offense is bad enough, but then the film hammers home the idea that fighting against the established rules of society no matter how much you disagree with them will get you nowhere and you should never do otherwise.
