The funniest, most touching family Christmas film of ALL time!
I lived the life of Ralphie! Even though I’m a girl and was born in the late seventies, my Christmases were much the same as Ralphie’s.
From playing Santa on Christmas morning to sipping my Dad’s Christmas cocktail to visiting Santa at the department store, I lived the very same Christmas memories. This movie brings out the true essence of Christmas happiness. Everyone, young and old, can relive the magic of being a child.
Ralphie’s vibrant imagination and inventiveness in his ploys to seduce his parents into buying him the ultimate gift are “pinch-his-chubby-cheeks” adorable. And Randy…need I say anything?? He is the perfect picture of the baby brother!
This movie is universal in its appeal to audiences of all ages, race, and nationalities. My husband, who grew up in Lebanon and who’s first language is Arabic, even knew the famous “oh fudge” line when I first played this movie for him here in the States.
I get giddy every time I sit down to watch this movie. Curling up with a warm cup of cider in front of the fireplace, wrapping Christmas presents, making Christmas cookies, or writing a letter to Santa Claus…those are all perfect times to watch this classic family film. This has been and always will be my all-time favorite Christmas film.
How difficult is it to perfectly capture nostalgia? It must be pretty darn difficult or else everyone would make movies like this. It may not be absolute perfection but Jean Shepherd, Bob Clark and the outstanding cast came as close as anyone here.
Creating a story centered around nostalgia is a tricky thing as the memories that creates it are unique to each of us. The themes, however, are similar and that’s where the success lies.
I didn’t want a Red Ryder BB gun when I was that age but my Christmas wish was just as fervent and I schemed just as hard as Ralphie. The bully at my school didn’t have yellow eyes but he was pretty much like Scut Farkus. And so on, from the fantastically flawed parents to the pop-heroes, A Christmas Story captures it all.
