Critic Reviews of "A Christmas Story"Washington PostNovember 30, 2015
It's a nostalgic comedy featuring a family of eccentrics who lovingly celebrate the holidays and life itself in Midwestern America in the 1940s.Chicago ReaderDecember 05, 2012
Shepherd provides the voice-over of the grown hero narrating, and his prominence on the sound track forces Clark to focus on visual humor, resulting in some wild Our Gang-style slapstick.ReelViewsJune 10, 2008
If you're a fan of Christmas movies or films that use nostalgia as a driver, A Christmas Story cannot be missed. Then again, if you're in either category, you have probably already seen it.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Delightfully entertaining, with a wryly amusing narration to keep the adults in the audience smirking.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
There are a number of small, unexpectedly funny moments in A Christmas Story, but you have to possess the stamina of a pearl diver to find them.Cinemaphile.orgDecember 30, 2013
It takes pause to recognize the collective good nature we owe to one another all year round, and pays that knowledge forward with charm and wistfulness.Cinema CrazedDecember 29, 2013
Never boring, and holds up wonderfully to repeated viewings.Christian Science MonitorDecember 04, 2013
It has a warmth and humor that soar with the season.People MagazineDecember 04, 2013
It won't make anyone forget Miracle on 34th Street, but this is pleasant fare as far as holiday films go nowadays, which isn't very far.Radio TimesDecember 04, 2013
This witty, insightful, hugely enjoyable movie is riven with glorious home truths and a merciful lack of saccharin.Mania.comNovember 18, 2013
An underlying sweetness keeps the cynicism from getting out of hand, while the more subversive moments help temper its saccharine tendencies.
