A Christmas Story 2 is a 2012 film directed by Brian Levant.[1] The movie is a sequel to the 1983 film A Christmas Story and was released straight to DVD on October 30, 2012.[2]

Plot[edit]

The movie takes place in 1946, six years after the events in the first movie which took place in 1940, showing Ralphie as a teenager, almost 16, who only wants a used 1939 Mercury convertible for Christmas. He accidentally causes the car to roll back out of the used car lot and gently tap a light pole causing a plastic reindeer on the pole to loosen and fall through the convertible top, so he bands together with Flick and Schwartz to raise enough money to fix it before Christmas so that the car dealer won't tell The Old Man.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Trailer[edit]

Initial reception to the film's trailer was predominantly negative,[3] with Slash Film calling it "sad".[4][5]

Film[edit]

FleshEatingZipper panned the movie, writing that the slapstick elements in the film detracted from the movie while praising the attempt to "replicate a 40s-era Midwest".[6] Brian Orndorf of Blu-ray.com wrote, "Shamelessly derivative and plasticized, A Christmas Story 2 will only have you wondering why you're not watching the original picture again."

A Christmas Story 2 currently has a Rotten Tomatoes audience score of 40% and 2 "rotten" ratings (with no "fresh" ratings) from critics.
