Though The Husband loves this movie, laughing out loud during a lot of it, none of the kids like it at all. When The Younger Son opted out of a second feature tonight in favor of working on a paper, The Husband picked A Christmas Story to watch.
A Christmas Story is a 1983 movie starring Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon and Darren McGavin.
The New York Times doesn't like it. Roger Ebert includes it in his section of "great movies" and has a glowing article that says, "The movie is not only about Christmas and BB guns, but also about childhood, and one detail after another rings true.".
