A Christmas Story

Review: A Christmas Story (1983)


Out of all the Christmas movies out there, this one to me is the worst. Even “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” (1964), which my mother actually took me to see, which was horrid, is better than this movie. The story is so weak it has to have a narrator carry the story to keep you interested. The humor is demeaning and degrading and to me actually insults the season.

Base story: 1 out of 5 swords
Acting: 3 out of 5 swords
Special effects: 2 out of 5 swords
Overall: 2 swords out of 5 swords
