      A Christmas Story Christmas

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It isn't as much fun as an official Red Ryder carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time, but A Christmas Story Christmas remains a sequel worth celebrating.

      Audience Consensus

      As sweet and nostalgic as the yuletide season itself, A Christmas Story Christmas should be happy holiday viewing for fans of the original.

      Jeff M I honestly didn't have extremely high hopes for this long-awaited sequel to the 1983 holiday classic, and those expectations were pretty much met. Except for a strong last 20 minutes, this movie fails to come close to the magic and nostalgia of its predecessor. In fact, the frequent flashbacks and returning characters and references to the original only make us miss it that much more. Bob Clark's A CHRISTMAS STORY was anchored by strong actors such as Darren McGavin and the underrated Melinda Dillon as Ralphie's parents. And forgive me for being blunt, but the kids from the 1983 movie didn't grow up to be the strongest of thespians. I was particularly dismayed by the casting and performance of Hagerty. She will always have a free pass with me because of her involvement with AIRPLANE!, but nothing about her feels remotely close to the Mrs. Parker that Dillon originated. In fact, I kept waiting for the revelation that Ralphie's mom had passed away, and Hagerty was playing his stepmom. Except for the sake of nostalgia and perhaps a desire to try capturing lightning in a bottle again, this movie feels perfunctory and unnecessary. With the exception of a quite funny scene involving Christmas carolers, there isn't a memorable character or situation to be found. It's not bad on the level of something like JINGLE ALL THE WAY or CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS. So I'm not necessarily yelling Bah Humbug, but at the same time I'm not screaming Deck the Halls! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review Kenneth L If you enjoyed the original A Christmas Story, this is worth watching for the nostalgia. Otherwise, it wasn't particularly memorable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review John W It can never live up to the original, but it was a nostalgic sequel. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Mark H Loved it!!!! Bringing back most of the original characters/ actors was magnificent. Story, acting, editing, etc was all perfect!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Scott Wow what a joke! Absolutely loved the endearing original. Heartwarming and thoughtful. This was simply just idiotic and had zero warmth or storyline worth watching. Another Hollywood disaster, which is what they're now famous for. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Tyler S Very very similar in liking to the first one. This was a ton of fun and a joy to watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Noel Murray Los Angeles Times Like its predecessor, it is enjoyably episodic, jumping from one comic vignette to another. Some of these connect, while others land with a thud. But so it goes with Christmas. Not every present is a winner. Nov 25, 2022 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times It’ll make for a warm double helping of Christmas nostalgia. Rated: 3/4 Nov 17, 2022 Full Review Calum Marsh New York Times Mostly it made me want to watch the original, which, as always, remains well worth revisiting. Nov 17, 2022 Full Review Lee Zumpe Tampa Bay Newspapers "A Christmas Story Christmas" eventually hooks viewers by unexpectedly redirecting its focus. Oct 26, 2023 Full Review Annie Banks Chuck Load of Comics A toasty, mild, and middling look back at a classic title being passed from one generation to the next. Rated: 5/10 Feb 22, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews What's great is seeing Billingsley play the same role as an adult that he played as a kid.
