A Christmas Story is a 1983 American Christmas comedy film directed by Bob Clark and based on Jean Shepherd‘s semi-fictional anecdotes in his 1966 book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, with some elements from his 1971 book Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories and Other Disasters.
Jennifer and Kaylia take on the classic A Christmas Story. We ask the burning questions: is Ralphie a sociopath? What is the name of his mother? Leg Lamp: tacky or brilliant? And does this very boomer movie still work for today’s audiences? You might not be able to escape the movie, but should you bother with the book?
