A Christmas Story (1983)
"A Tribute to the Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas... "Ralphie has to convince his parents, teachers, and Santa that a Red Ryder BB gun really is the perfect gift for the 1940's.
Classic Christmas film that doesn't age
Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) wants a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas but
his mother is totally against it - the "you'll shoot your eye out"
discussion being a major opposition.
This is essentially a story about childhood and is very spot-on in
regards to the yearning of children and the whole Christmas era - I've
been watching it since I was a child and every Christmas when it comes
on TV I watch it again. It's funny, poignant and totally memorable - it
has some of the best scenes of all-time and although I know a few
people who dislike it because it's a bit "weird" and "dark," most
people I know love it.
Worth watching every Christmas, forever!
