Customer Review

on December 10, 2012
I am a huge fan of the original and I am such a fan that anything Christmas Story interests me so I figured I would give this movie a chance. Within the first 10 minutes I wanted to rip the DVD player out of the wall and throw it out the window. This movie is so bad, so horribly wrong that I cannot believe I wasted money on this. My first though is that it was a joke and maybe a play on the original which is fine. Pranking on the original is always sort of funny. The bad thing is, that this is not a prank and is serious. The actors including Daniel Stern and the kid who plays Ralphie are so bad, such bad acting that you will cringe when you see it. The narrator is no Jean Shepard and actually makes the movie even worse trying to throw in verbage from the first movie in referencing other things. The plot and the storyline are similar except that Ralphie is getting his license and a car and thats his Red Rider plus the swearing and rude behavior is not proper and almost forced. Plus the age difference between Ralphie and his brother is odd since in the original there was only like a 5 year difference and now there is a 10 year difference? I cannot believe they were even allowed to make a sequal to this movie. Trying to reenact the scenes from the original in a sequal is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Do yourself a favor, do not ruin your impression of the original by watching this movie. It is one of the worst attempts at a sequal I have seen since the American Pie presents Band Camp. Stay away, stay far away!
