Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis are empty nesters in this holiday comedy. Blair, their daughter, has left for the Peace Corps and the parents are left with their first Christmas without their baby girl. After calculating they spent $6,132 on Christmas last year they decide to skip the season altogether and take a cruise. Perfect! Except for a few things: their Christmas crazed neighbors aren’t about to let them get away with it, and oh yeah, Blair’s planning a surprise trip home—with her new Peruvian boyfriend. Based on John Grisham’s novel Skipping Christmas, this movie reminds us what we’re willing to do for the one’s we love.
