  • "The funniest thing about Christmas, according to Jean Shepherd's over-the-top holiday comedy, is spending it with your own family - in this tale you'll be caught up in all kinds of childhood calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the yellow-eyed Scotty Farkus affair to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit."@en

  • "Nine years after the Yuletide slasher flick Black Christmas, Porky's director Bob Clark once again took on the holiday genre, switching from gasps to laughs with A Christmas Story. Adapted from a memoir by humorist Jean Shepherd (who narrates), the film centers on Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), a young boy living in 1940s Indiana, desperately yearning for a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas. Despite protests from his mother (Melinda Dillon) that he'll shoot his eye out, Ralphie persists, unsuccessfully trying to enlist the assistance of both his teacher and Santa Claus. All the while, Ralphie finds himself dealing with the constant taunts of a pair of bullies and trying to not get in the middle of a feud between his mother and father (Darren McGavin) regarding a sexy lamp."@en

  • "Ralphie is a 9-year-old who wants only one thing for Christmas - an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock. Between his parents, his teacher, and even Santa Claus all Ralphie hears is "No, you'll shoot your eye out." By this time, Ralphie has had enough of that. When Scut Farkus, the schoolyard bully and his sidekick Grover Dill start in on Ralphie while he's on his way home from school that day, Ralphie knocks Grover to the ground, beats Scut's face bloody, and then pounds Scut's head on the snow-covered ground several times. Ralphie thinks he'll never get the BB gun for Christmas now. And all of the other kids are going to be getting what they want for Christmas."@en
  • "Based on the short stories of midwestern humorist Jean Shepherd who also narrates in the first person, this episodic comedy film is set in the 1940's and centers on the life of Ralphie Parker as Christmas approaches. Ralphie desires a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas and embarks on a spirited campaign to convince his resistant parents to get him one. Among Shepherd's childhood reminiscences are Ralphie's narrow escape from neighborhood bullies, the "old man's" battles with a stubborn furnace and his infatuation with a lamp that looks like a woman's leg, and a nightmarish visit with Santa Claus at the local department store.

  • "This family-oriented Americana comedy set in a 1940s-era Midwestern town has been an enduring holiday season favourite amongst North American audiences since its release in 1983. Based on the memoirs of Jean Shepherd, the US humorist whose radio programs and books recalled his childhood in Indiana in the 1940s, the episodic story is told from the perspective of a nine-year old boy who only wants one thing for Christmas, a Red Ryder BB gun. The narrative not only chronicles the boy's schemes to convince his mother and father to buy him this prized gift, but employs slapstick, gentle humor, satire and pathos to present a warmly nostalgic, but not overly sentimental, look into 1940s middle-class American life."@en
