Henry Perno presents, his review of A Christmas Story. We open with a look at Ralph’s (Peter Billingsly) neighborhood, followed by a more urban area where he and a bunch of other kids are gawking at the Christmas store display, where Ralph becomes infatuated with the “Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and "this thing which tells time" (a sundial).” He’s rejected by his mother at first, and then after his friend Flick (Scott Schwartz) sticks his tongue to a flagpole, what follows is Ralph’s quest to get a “Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and "this thing which tells time" (a sundial),” as he describes it, and survive life in Northern Indiana, between a foul-mouthed dad (Darren McGavin) and life in general. In the context of this film, none of the characters are really well-developed, but we can all relate Ralph’s quest for a BB gun, though we may seek different targets. Many moms around the country and world can relate to Ralphie’s mom (Melinda Dillon) and her well-meaning parenting. I don’t think every dad is an angry one, but he gets mad, and everybody gets angry or has that pet peeve (in his case, several). A plot that seems mundane in idea, but is hilarious in its execution, from Ralph’s daydreams to the way the family interacts with each other, and of course just nostalgia for the things you remember like the leg lamp and behaviors we now consider outdated. A semi-timeless classic for the ages, whether you’re a younger child who’s like “what is this weird stuff?” or an adult who’s seen this so many times, you think “just like I remember,” or an adult watching for the first time and saying “thanks for showing me this!”
Thanks for introducing the F word to our 8yo twins. I usually pre screen as many movies as possible but what I recall as a fun and hilarious Christmas movie just took a dump in the middle of our holiday. :p
A Christmas story is the best movie ever. It is my favorite movie. The best movie ever!!! If you love Christmas like I do than you will love it!!
This film has so many good moments, well worth seeing but the triple dog dare is still the best with the kids tongue stuck to the pole. I wonder how many kids got their tongues stuck to poles after watching this movie. Can anyone tell me where I can get a leg lamp too?
