So, just today at a local store I saw their Christmas movie selection, and they had the original A Christmas Story on sale for $27. And apparently they were selling rather well according to the salesperson I asked.
Right next to it for about $5 they had the, ugh, 'sequel' -- A Christmas Story 2 AKA 'A fifteen-year-old tries to get laid for Christmas'. And yes, that's the plot.
I could try describing this awful film but you know what? This link does it much better than I ever could hope to: www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions…
I will only say one thing. At one point Frankie needs to get a single dollar to pay off some damages, so he asks his friend Schwartz, a nondescript Jew -- don't look at me like that, that's how he gets described in the film -- for a dollar. Schwartz refuses to give it up. Why? Because it's a dollar and he's a Jew, that's why. I think I almost fell out of my seat when I saw that.
Stay classy, Hollywood!
