Ralphie is an excitable and charming 9 year old growing up in 1940s America. It's Christmas time and he is desperate to get his mitts on a much-coveted toy gun. Despite being turned down by a wonderfully incompetent department store Santa, he won't stop on his quest. At the heart of this nostalgic comedy is Ralphie's eccentric and endearingly recognisable family life. His father 'The Old Man' is the film's hidden gem, a victim of comic misfortunes who remains resolutely determined to smile on regardless, at least until Christmas is over. Fun, silly and imaginatively told this is an entertaining festive tale.
