A Christmas Story
All Ralphie Parker wanted was a Red Ryder BB gun. A Christmas Story chronicles a memorable holiday season for Ralphie, who is convinced that the gun is a perfect gift. But it's not so easy. "You'll shoot your eye out!," cries his mother, his teacher, even Santa Claus. This is a holiday classic in every way, filled with terrific dialogue ("He looks like a deranged Easter bunny!") and unforgettable scenes (his brother can't put his arms down; his friend licking the flagpole; saying the F-word to his dad). Impossible not to love.
