Destined to become a holiday classic, this family comedy follows an Indiana schoolboy whose obsession with getting a Red Ryder air rifle for Christmas leads to hilarious consequences. Co-starring Emmy-winner Darren McGavin ("Kolchak: The Night Stalker"). Based upon a true story.

This is what your dads Christmas was like if he was from middle America and a white family. Even with all that, it’s still a pretty good movie.
Great movie would watch over and over.

When I came over to the US, everyone always went crazy about this movie, knowing literally every line and having re-runs and re-runs like it was Finding Nemo time. Me, I never cared for it too much, didn't get what the fuss was about. Always felt sorry for the kid who gets his tongue stuck to the lightpost.

Hilarious! Perfect! Love the story & cast! A family favorite! — So many years of joy! ❤️
Shouldn’t have been PG.
I was 8 the first time I saw this movie, and thought it was very cruel...but now I got used to it and saw it over and over again a million times! Such a good movie! There should be a Christmas story animated TV series! That would be amazing! And I hope there’s a Christmas story 3!
wow good movie 2019-12-24

This movie just nevet gets old! It is a tradtion to watch it for the 24hrs it comes on during Christmas. It wouldn't be Christmas without watching this movie a million times during the holiday season. I honestly don't think they could have picked a better cast! It is one of thee best Christmas classics and i'm glad to see in 2019 kids are still being shown this movie!
A Christmas story is my Christmas tradition I watch it every Christmas yeah we first started watching Christmas story like 10 years ago my five favorite parts is Ralph he said the F word my second favorite part is you’ll shoot your eye out my third favorite part is sticking that tongue to that dumb Pool my fourth favorite part is Ralphie using the red Ryder BB gun to kill The joker bank robberies my fifth favorite part is flagile it must be Italian
A timeless classic a must for Christmas, had to buy to watch through out the next year
This is a classic Christmas movie and anyone that don’t understand the humor and enjoy this movie grown up to be sissy’s. This is old classic American humor before people turned into crybabies and can’t take a joke. So 5 starts form me for this film
Transphobic? Kinda. Racist? Definitely. Normalizing of gun ownership without responsibility? With pride. I have not ever understood the appeal of this movie and I don’t think I ever will.

I guess i dont get it, i thought it was very stupid and boring, and i usually like ‘older’ movies
This makes no sense it isn’t funny and is sometimes boring, stupid or just screwed up what a terrible movie I don’t give a crap about people with “movie nostalgia” this is just a terrible movie you shouldn’t waste your money you’ll “shoot your eye out” what the heck😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
This is a great movie. I love this movie so much. I love all of the characters in this movieIt is a great holiday christmas movie. It is one of my all time favorite movies ever.
The best movie ever for an affordable price!!
Henry Perno presents, his review of A Christmas Story. We open with a look at Ralph’s (Peter Billingsly) neighborhood, followed by a more urban area where he and a bunch of other kids are gawking at the Christmas store display, where Ralph becomes infatuated with the “Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and "this thing which tells time" (a sundial).” He’s rejected by his mother at first, and then after his friend Flick (Scott Schwartz) sticks his tongue to a flagpole, what follows is Ralph’s quest to get a “Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and "this thing which tells time" (a sundial),” as he describes it, and survive life in Northern Indiana, between a foul-mouthed dad (Darren McGavin) and life in general. In the context of this film, none of the characters are really well-developed, but we can all relate Ralph’s quest for a BB gun, though we may seek different targets. Many moms around the country and world can relate to Ralphie’s mom (Melinda Dillon) and her well-meaning parenting. I don’t think every dad is an angry one, but he gets mad, and everybody gets angry or has that pet peeve (in his case, several). A plot that seems mundane in idea, but is hilarious in its execution, from Ralph’s daydreams to the way the family interacts with each other, and of course just nostalgia for the things you remember like the leg lamp and behaviors we now consider outdated. A semi-timeless classic for the ages, whether you’re a younger child who’s like “what is this weird stuff?” or an adult who’s seen this so many times, you think “just like I remember,” or an adult watching for the first time and saying “thanks for showing me this!”
Thanks for introducing the F word to our 8yo twins. I usually pre screen as many movies as possible but what I recall as a fun and hilarious Christmas movie just took a dump in the middle of our holiday. :p
A Christmas story is the best movie ever. It is my favorite movie. The best movie ever!!! If you love Christmas like I do than you will love it!!
This movie is warm-hearting and very memorable.

I only watch it when it marathons Christmas Eve into Christmas Day and I love it
Awesome movie my family and I watch it for the 24 hours that TNT plays it on christmas eve so great movie and itunes is always great quality so👌🏾
Great Christmas movie. True to real life. I've watched it at least 100 times.
My family watches this movie every year on Christmas Eve. It has become one of our holiday traditions, and it deserves to be. A Christmas Story is packed full of funny scenes that will not bore you! It's simply a classic and I recommend this movie all the way as a great holiday watch!
By far my families favorite christmas movie! We watch it together every year
It's not Christmas for me unless I watch this movie at least a dozen times, and it never gets old.

BEST movie, watched as a kid!
As a baby boomer I grew up with fuse boxes, huge xmas lights, mall santa, well-intentioned but awkward grandparent gifts, bulky winter clothing, and also dreamed of things like BB guns and decoder rings. Sadly, we did not have the Bumpus hounds next door. But we had the Baddas and one of their boys wore a coon skin cap and was a bully. This movie is an example of where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. You put all the pieces together, stir it, sing Fa Ra Ra Ra Ra a few times, and poof….CHRISTMAS MAGIC!!!
My kids (4 & 7) wanted to watch a Christmas movie of some sort... I read the reviews and it looked GREAT! They aren't into scary films... And although this one wasn't very scary, there are elements that make it challenging for a younger kid to watch. Anyway, my kids hated it... We watched the whole thing waiting for it to turn and get better... But no. And now they cannot sleep. Not cool.
Hahaha so funny. I love it! Millions and millions and millions of people love it. It is a family comity for everyone. It's awesome. I love it

My grandfather on my moms side, we called him boompa he used to watch this movie all the time. But, he's watching it now in heaven. I ❤️ u boompa 😢
It's a good movie overall, but the scene when they go to dinner at the Asian restaurant and the Asian waiters sing is (kind of) racist.
It's not Christmas if you don't watch this movie!!! Seriously, it's a classic!!!
A Christmas tradition at my house since I was little. If you haven't seen it, why are you still reading my review?
This is a top of a line Christmas movie this has been been my favorite since I was a little girl and now as a woman love this movie greatest Christmas of all time
This movie is the most hilarious, next to elf, Christmas movie. I watch it every single Christmas Eve with my family. This has been a tradition for at least 6 years or so. (Or longer, I've been watching it for 6 years) but this movie is one of the cutest funniest movies.

One of the best Christmas movie's ever!
The lil kid shows Alot of Tyler
This has evolved to be my favorite Christmas film. It's naturalness appeals to me - the father's vocabulary, childhood misadventures and impressions, having to go to a Chinese restaurant on Christmas, very typical family life and small time life of the time period. Every actor did a superb job including all of the children, often not the case. Just a very naturally feel good movie without being overly sentimental.
Highly recommended. It’s an entertaining story and a refreshing change from the “classics” (i.e.: Miracle on 34th St”, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and some of the contemporary “made for cable” holiday movies. It’s interesting to note that half of the (very few) negative reviews state that they didn’t even watch the entire movie. How can one be qualified to write a review of a movie you didn’t actually watch? Others stated that it “wasn’t what they think a Christmas movie should be.” Granted, if you don’t have a sense of humor, if you’re a curmudgeon, you should stay away.
