Joyful Christmas classic

While dozens of Christmas films roll off the production line every year, very few manage to capture the festive season, and the audience's hearts, quite like 'A Christmas Story'. This 80s classic is a real crowd-pleaser, a film that can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age or film taste, which explains its continued popularity with TV networks.

Ralphie is a character we can all relate to, because we were all that kid a Christmas once. The film gets his character spot on and the events that take place in the film will bring back a lot of memories for the average viewer. For such a shallow storyline the film provides so much enjoyment and, although there are other films I would rather watch over the festive season than this one, it remains a classic to this day and will always be up there as one of the Christmas greats.

annoying

Watched this movie for the first time this year. I found this to be one of the most annoying movies I've ever seen. Sorry, won't be adding this one to my yearly holiday watchlist!

It's about a lot more than a holiday.

This story is told from the vantage point of an ten year old boy. The boy is self-centered, willful, manipulative, in short, obnoxious. Everything in the story is about him. He is the center of his own personal universe. His likes his parents, but to him they are merely means through which to gain gratification. His father is a gruff sounding but caring and responsible working man; his mother is a house wife. The story provides little information about them. All that is known is learned from the boy, and his perceptions are limited. The movie ostensibly is a comedy. However , it pokes fun at the parents, who really aren't subjects who warrant derision. The story also takes shots at the crass materialism associated with Christmas. here, the story is more effective as a satire. It is difficult not to find something about Christmas that cannot be parodied. Already a cynic, the boy knows that it's all a bunch of baloney. All he wants is a certain present. He knows Santa won't be bringing it, so he is forced to use subterfuge to get his way. To find out what happens, watch the movie. But don't be fooled by the title. Although set during Christmas., this story is about a lot more than a holiday.
