A Christmas Story

Merry Christmas! If there was one movie to review that best summed up the mind of kid-dom at Christmas it definitely has to be A Christmas Story! The tale of Ralphie Parker and his desire for a Red Ryder BB gun is ingrained in Americana, thanks in part to the 24-hour marathon on the Turner Broadcast networks beginning in the late 1990’s. It’s set in the late 1930’s and is laid over with Jean Shephard’s voice telling the tale of his youth. From fighting bullies with green teeth, to being tricked into radio commercials for Ovaltine, to his old man’s desire for a MAJOR AWARD, this movie has it all and never gets old. There are even old cars, a tongue stuck to a frozen pole, and a duck that gets his head cut off.  PERFECT 10 LITTLE DEBBIE CHRISTMAS TREE RATING.
