A Christmas Story Christmas is the best sequel of A Christmas Story bestest movie ever !!!
I haven’t watched any other sequels of the original movie, so I have no basis for comparison there. I have read that this one is significantly better than other sequels.
I thought it was okay. Of course it leaned heavily on the original movie, as you’d expect, with plenty of references to events from that story and even short video clips. (Don’t miss the sign in the bar that is a tribute to Jean Shepherd’s book that this franchise is based on.) Leaning on the original is fine, and quite apt as the story doubles as a tribute to the late Old Man. The writing is competent, though lacking the sparkle and delight of the Jean Shepherd original. But it wasn’t as predictable either as I feared it would be with subplots such as the missing presents and Ralph’s fledgling writing career. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised at what they did with those subplots, avoiding cliched pitfalls in favor of more sensible resolutions.
So I found it was worth my time watching it, though it won’t make the short list of holiday films I watch every year, such as with the original Christmas Story. Actually, I wonder if it might have gained a bit more magic if it had more closely followed Ralph’s kids rather than the adults as it did. That would have been a tough script to write though, with people relentlessly comparing it to the original. I write novels in my spare time: perhaps I will attempt a bit of fan fiction writing and try it, just for kicks. Hmm.
Has the heart of the original..
Just watched this and to be honest I was hoping for the best but really expecting the worst.. Thats why, I watched it early.. Well thank god… It was a very worthy sequel to the Christmas classic.
Never over doing it and keeping the character’s real.
It also benifits from getting many of the original cast back and keeping them very likable. Now, without giving to much away, the story now set in the early 70s and follows Ralphie now in his 40s coming to terms with his fathers (The Old Man) passing and also dealing with percieved personal faliures. But his mother has asked him to make a special christmas and thats what he’s going to do. (All this is in the trailer).
The film has all the style of the original and the new character’s such as Ralphies wife and kids are very well drawn and acted.
I will be watching this again as part of double features with the original closer to Christmas.
All in all a very fine sequel that manages to bring the story full circle..
Oh my lord, what in the world, how was this so good?
The original Christmas Story is one of the best Christmas movies ever created, naturally I had high expectations for this film but to say it exceeded them is just an understatement, this film was just beautiful, and it’s honestly just as good if not better than the original film, which I didn’t think was possible.
A Christmas Story Christmas manager to perfectly use callbacks to the original film while also weaving in brilliant originality, beautifully bringing in real world issues and dare I say, it almost managed to make me cry on multiple occasions.
It’s a truly hilarious film, and I wasn’t expecting Polly from Malcolm in the Middle to show up, Peter Billingsley puts on a truly beautiful performance and it just managed to fill my heart with joy and is one of the best early Christmas gifts I could ever have.
I’m gonna give a Christmas story Christmas an A.
