As a kid, my family (and many families, I’m sure) had a yearly tradition of watching several holiday productions: the Animaniacs Christmas episode, an edited-for-TV version of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and, most importantly, A Christmas Story.
I suppose by now I should be used to Hollywood latching onto perfectly good movies and making a mockery out of them. But when I discovered that they were making a sequel to A Christmas Story, I was appalled. And when I saw the trailer, I almost threw my computer out the window. Watch it here, and let us know if you’re as miffed as I am!
Is anyone else not surprised that this is going direct-to-DVD? Oh well: I may not like the idea, but no one is going to sit me down and force me to watch this sequel. (Unless my boyfriend concocts some sort of sick date night.) I guess I’ll just forget it even exists and focus my chagrin towards other more pressing issues. [via Gawker]
Are you happy they made a sequel to A Christmas Story? Does it look funny? Will you watch it?
