A Christmas Story (1983)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This great heartwarming comedy from the director of Porky's was a flop during its theatrical run, but, like It's a Wonderful Life, has become a staple on cable during the holiday season. Peter Billingsley plays the pudgy-cheeked, bespectacled boy who navigates the treacheries of daily life -- all in the hopes of getting a toy rifle for Christmas. Jean Shepherd narrates from his series of stories. This new double-disc set will perfectly accompany that Christmas dinner turkey coma, revisiting with the cast members today and providing tons of funny little features and games. The movie now includes a commentary track by Billingsley and director Bob Clark.
