Based on the novel by John Grisham called “Skipping Christmas,” the film version is mostly faithful to the original story. Many will criticize "Christmas with the Kranks" for its shallowness, but beneath the insanity – which is surprisingly funny – there’s a definite Christian message.

Although The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe doesn’t meet the standard of an epic film, it is certainly enjoyable to watch and largely true to original story. Hats off to the film's producers who have shown a movie with Christian themes can reach a high standard of technical and narrative excellence.

Many will insist it is, but I beg to differ.
