17 Fan Reactions To The New "A Christmas Story" Sequel

There's yet another entry in the A Christmas Story franchise — and yes, at this point, I'd call it a franchise, seeing as this year's sequel, A Christmas Story Christmas, is the fourth movie to feature Ralphie and the rest of the Parker family.

(Fun fact: Kieran Culkin — Roman Roy himself — played Ralphie in the first sequel, It Runs in the Family: My Summer Story, back in the '90s.)

Reactions to the film seem pretty mixed — while I've seen a lot of praise for it, I also saw someone describe it as "one of the worst movies" they've ever seen in their life.

As someone who has spent the majority of their Christmas Eves enjoying multiple viewings of A Christmas Story with my family — thanks TNT — for the most part, I got just what I was hoping for out of it: a blast of sentimental nostalgia.

It's not a perfect movie, but I don't think anyone was really expecting it to be. It gives that feeling you get when you return to your hometown and see the people you grew up with, which is exactly what it should feel like given the plot.
