#693. A Christmas Story (1983)
Why It's In The Book: "…director Bob Clark [has] more than enough ammunition to lovingly but bitingly send up Christmas, family values, nostalgia for bygone eras, and the consumerism that has come to define the holiday season. Both droll and laugh-out-loud funny, this modern holiday classic resonates so deeply because it never becomes cruel or dismissive as it tackles its targets…
Classic scenes… manage to be both uproarious and touching without ever sliding into schmaltz or sentimentality. For those who loathe the saccharine aspects of the holidays, but don’t actually want to be Scrooge, A Christmas Story is a perfect fit." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Movie Guy Steve - 10/10
"I’m sure there are people who don’t like this film, but I don’t want to spend any time talking to them."
Siochembio - 10/10
"When I watch this movie, it makes me feel the same way I did when I was a kid at Christmas. The older I get, the more that feeling slips away from me; this makes A Christmas Story that much more special. It’s a way of recapturing that beautiful, golden feeling of joy and bliss."
Alyson - 9/10
"Nothing says Merry Christmas like Santa’s foot on your forehead, sending you down to a pile of fluff, next to your crying kid brother."
Kim Wilson - 8/10
"Clark's movie is wonderful, a sweet and touching story told from the perspective of a young boy."
Squish - 8/10
"...the beauty and innocent fun that comes from A Christmas Story is the best time you'll have with a shotgun in your mouth."
Adolytsi - 7/10
"It’s heartwarming indeed, and a holiday classic, but one I suspect is on the list merely for its status as a beloved holiday film."
Michaël Parent - 7/10
"Bob Clark’s A Christmas Story has a huge following and despite my high expectations I liked it quite a lot and I can understand how people can relate to this thirty year old film."
Jay Cluitt - 6/10
"There is definitely a reason this hasn’t caught on over here in the UK."
