In the 1940s, in the town of Hammond, 9-year-old Ralphie wants one thing for Christmas -- an official Red Ryder BB rifle. When he asks his mother for the BB gun for Christmas, she says, "No, you'll shoot your eye out". When he writes an essay about it at school his teacher gives him a C+ with a note saying "You'll shoot your eye out." Next he asks Santa for the gun, Santa's response is familiar, he says, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." Ralph fears that he'll never get the BB gun for Christmas. A darkly humourous holiday classic from the director of 'Porky's.' What might have been acceptable for family viewing in 1983 is perhaps a bit more delicate for young viewers and parents today. Swears, mature content and mild violence with BB guns and bullying are found throughout this movie. This picture is best suited for those age 8+.
