A Christmas Story (1983) is the story of a childhood Christmas remembered and dramatically narrated by Ralphie, who wants that Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas more than anything in the world. The film is filled with subplots involving Ralphie's family and friends. Although The Husband and I like this movie The Younger Son does not, asking if it's a generational thing. Could be. There's nobody anywhere near his age in the film, and he just doesn't think it's at all funny...
We saw it last year, too.
