**** out of ****      Seldom are there films which we can relate to without having ever experienced a similar incident or event. "A Christmas Story" happens to be one of those movies; treating bunny suits and frozen flag poles as if we've all encountered them as the film's characters have. The best part about it all is that strangely enough, we laugh at every single one of these things. We act as if we can connect, although it's a well known fact that more …

A Christmas Story Will Never Die, As Long As You Don't Let It.
This is one movie that you can never get tired of seeing. This was made in 1983 and depicted the 1940's, and every time that I watch this it makes me take a step back in time. Ralphie (played by Peter Billingsley)a 9 year old boy tries to trick his parents in getting the toy of the season and that was a Red Ryder BB gun, at that time this was every little boy's dream. Ralphie goes to the extent to leaving hints all the way up to Christmas Eve. They reside in a small town in Indiana, and …

Christmas classic must see

What is Christmas without 'A Christmas Story'?  That is like Santa Claus not getting any cookies and milk, Rudolph not getting any carrots - the grocery stores running out of egg nog, no Christmas carols ....no holiday cards in the mail,  no traditional yule log warming the television for 24 hours....I can't imagine    I get my fill because TNT runs the movie straight for a consecutive 24 hours from December 24th at 8:00 pm through December 25th.    This …

Jean Shepherd's 'A Christmas Story' deserves to be the classic it is. It is a likable reminiscence of a Christmas past when the author's near self, Ralphie, yearns to get an airrifle for Christmas. He makes every hint possible, but is always rebuffed with the counsel, "You'll shoot your eye out." In the midst of his unfulfilled desire, is the usual hijinx with his school teacher and the pursuit of the neighborhood bullies.    Much of the movie is episodic with fun scenes that …

A true classic, in the best sense of the word. It's not a "stuffy" classic that everyone admires but no one actually enjoys. It's not a classic in that it's a movie your grandparents really admire...but you have no use for. Another word for CHRISTMAS STORY would be "timeless." I have seen this movie nearly every year since it first came out on the big screen 20 years ago. I enjoy it EVERY TIME. All the classic comic moments remain hilarious even now.Tongue stuck to flagpole. The bully with the yellow …

When A CHRISTMAS STORY originally arrived in theatres, it was only around for about three weeks because the studios didn't feel it would make any money and felt the story didn't lend itself to a longer theatrical run. It wasn't until the movie started airing on televsion and cable that people found out how great a movie A CHRISTMAS STORY is. Since then, the movie has become a piece of our American heritage, a part of the pop culture paradigm, and (like IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE) a Christmas classic.The …
