Mandatory Christmas viewing I watch this film every year, it's subtle and funny. It has that Norman Rockwell look to it, but with an edge.
Ralphie, a young boy growing up in the '40's, dreams of owning a Red Rider BB gun. He sets out to convince the world this is the perfect gift. But along the way, he runs into opposition from his parents, his teacher, and even good 'ol Santa Claus himself.
