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..
I won’t apologize, I loved it!
You’ll be hard pressed to find a bigger Christmas Story fan than myself. I love the original so much, and I’ll be honest that I was nervous about a new one. Rarely do they find the right mix of nostalgia and new material, especially when there’s big a long time since the original. However, perhaps people are starting to figure it out with the great Top Gun: Maverick and now A Christmas Story Christmas.
One of the things that is always worrisome is if they simply try and recreate those nostalgic moments. However, this movie finds ways to avoid those and create it’s own new ones. For example, there is no forced scene where the oldest child has to wear the bunny outfit, or Ralphie getting a leg lamp, etc. In fact, the lamp, bunny outfit, Triple Dog Dare You and some other iconic moments are minimized and allowed to be left as memories for the characters the way they are for us.
It’s far more emotional than I would have ever expected, acting as a fitting tribute to The Old Man and to Christmases of the past.
Ralphie still has an active imagination and there is one snowball fight daydream that is particularly funny.
Most of the original cast is brought back with the one exception being Mrs. Parker. If I had one complaint it would be that I thought Julie Hagerty played the mother a bit goofier than I thought she would be, but that’s a minor gripe. I absolutely loved how they handled the return Of Scut Farkus.
Overall, it’s just a fun movie that can be added to the Christmas rotation. It’s hard to say if it will become a classic , but it’s important to remember the original wasn’t appreciated until years after it came out. I think most fans of the original will enjoy this.
