There are a number of small, unexpectedly funny moments in A Christmas Story, but you have to possess the stamina of a pearl diver to find them.
New York Times
It's a nostalgic comedy featuring a family of eccentrics who lovingly celebrate the holidays and life itself in Midwestern America in the 1940s. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- It takes pause to recognize the collective good nature we owe to one another all year round, and pays that knowledge forward with charm and wistfulness. Full Review
It has a warmth and humor that soar with the season. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
...There are many small but perfect moment in A CHRISTMAS STORY....There is a real knowledge of human nature beneath the comedy...
Rating: A+ -- I think it is one of the best portrayals of childhood ever in the movies. Full Review
...Think of it as IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE for post-Reagan generations as it morphs from cult to classic 20 years down the road...
This vignette-laden, nostalgic view of Christmastime in 1940s Indiana follows nine-year-old Ralphie, who desperately wants a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas--and is waging an all-out campaign to convince his reluctant parents that the toy will be safe in his hands. By turns warped and winsome, the comedy follows Ralphie as he prepares for the big day with his rather idiosyncratic family. Based on the novel by humorist Jean Shepherd (who also narrates the film), A CHRISTMAS STORY gained popularity long after its theatrical run, through frequent holiday broadcasts that turned its schoolyard "triple-dog" dares, family neuroses, and childhood indignities into a Yuletide tradition.
