Atom User Reviews for A Christmas Story

Oh, there's no doubt about it, Clark is manipulating his audience right down to those Jingle Bells, but only an unreformed Scrooge would hate him for it. A Christmas Story is a joy to the world, right down to the moment Mom slips downstairs to unplug the tree lights.
This richly remembered tale of Christmas past, with writer Jean Shepherd recalling the days when a Red Ryder BB gun really meant something, is already something of a Christmas perennial.
