Christmas Story, A

The Christmas spirit soars to life in this hilarious holiday gem, an "amusing and heartwarming Rockwell-like portrait of Middle America" (The Hollywood Reporter). With its "genuine feeling of family warmth" (Variety), A CHRISTMAS STORY is "truly funny for kids and grown-ups alike: (Leonard Maltin) and will charm you with its tale of determination and triumph over seemingly unconquerable odds!

In a small 1940's Indiana town, nine-year old Ralphie Parker dreams of a perfect Christmas morning complete with the ultimate holiday gift: "a Genuine Red Ryder Carbine Action Two-Hundred Shot Lightning Loader Range Model Air Rifle!" But when both his gruffly lovable father and doting mother respond with the patent "no, you'll shoot your eye out," Ralphie makes persistent attempts that MAY win him his dream- but will DEFINITELY win your heart!
