have you seen "Christmas with the Cranks"? it came out a couple years ago, based on the book by john grisham (the book's called 'Skipping Christmas'). i saw the movie long before i read the book, but the past week i've brought a paper back copy to the gym with me and holy toledo, it is so funny. the only thing i didn't love about it was that the main character is a little racist. but other than that, it is fantastic.
perfect for getting you in the mood for the holidays.
and there's a reference in it to caramel cream pie, which i plan on making soon. and eating all by myself.
