On December 11, 2012, one of the classic holiday movies, A Christmas Story, will be available in a special Limited Holiday Giftpack.
My family LOVES A Christmas Story. We try and watch it when we can during the holiday season and we always make it a point to watch it as much as possible on Christmas Eve into Christmas Day when it’s shown on TBS for 24 hours. We MUST catch at least the last few minutes before the last showing ends. In a sad way it signifies the end of the holiday season (at least it does for my family).
I find it hard to believe that anyone hasn’t seen this hilarious film, but just in case you haven’t, here is the film’s synopsis.
A CHRISTMAS STORY SYNOPSIS: This delightfully funny holiday gem tells the story of Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsly) a 1940’s nine-year-old who pulls out all the stops to obtain the ultimate Christmas present.
It’s Christmas time and there’s only one thing on Ralphie Parker’s Christmas list this year: a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-Shot, Range Model Air Rifle, but many obstacles stand in the way of his dream because every adult that he confronts keeps telling him he’ll shoot his eye out. Meanwhile The Old Man just got a major award (a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg), and Mom is making sure The Old Man doesn’t come near her turkey, Ralphie’s friend gets his tongue stuck to a flag pole, and Ralphie utters the f-word infront of his father. Christmas is drawing nearer and Ralphie visits Santa at the department store in hopes of asking him for his dream gift. Will he receive it? Let’s hope so.
Did you know they made a new movie based on the original? It’s appropriately called A Christmas Story 2. It picks up a few years after the original story. Sweet little Ralphie is now 15 years old and instead of a Red Ryder he wants what most teenage boys want – a car!
A CHRISTMAS STORY 2 SYNOPSIS: The original, traditional, one-hundred-percent, red-blooded, two-fisted, All-American Christmas continues five years later with Ralphie, Randy, mom and the Old Man. When 15 year-old Ralphie accidentally wrecks his dream car before even getting it off the lot, he and his friends Flick and Schwartz band together to raise the money to fix it by Christmas Eve – before the car dealer tells the Old Man. They all get their (first!) jobs, but run into trouble at every turn. When things look most bleak, Ralphie finds the true meaning of Christmas with the help of his family and his friends.
I have not had the opportunity to see the second film yet. I honestly can’t tell you how it is. All I know is that the original is a classic and makes my family laugh year after year.
