Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [A] richly remembered tale of Christmas past.
Fresh: There is a real knowledge of human nature beneath the comedy.
Fresh: If you're a fan of Christmas movies or films that use nostalgia as a driver, A Christmas Story cannot be missed. Then again, if you're in either category, you have probably already seen it.
Fresh: Shepherd provides the voice-over of the grown hero narrating, and his prominence on the sound track forces Clark to focus on visual humor, resulting in some wild Our Gang-style slapstick.
A Christmas classic.
It just wouldn't be Christmas without this wonderful film. Every scene practically radiates with child-like humor and fun. There are so many unforgettable moments and lines in this film, making it impossible to watch just once or even twice. A perfect film about childhood from a kid's perspective, "A Christmas Story" is a film that has stood the test of time and deserves to be watched at least every Christmas.
