WATCH: 'A Christmas Story 2' Trailer [VIDEO]
'A Christmas Story' Sequel Coming to DVD, Blu-ray
This is complete and utter nonsense that may lead you to wanting to shoot your own eye out with a Red Ryder bb gun.
Check out the trailer for A Christmas Story 2, a sequel that's getting the straight-to-DVD treatment.
A Christmas Story, the 1983 classic that follows Ralphie and his quest for the toy of his dreams, is finally getting a follow up.
For anyone who ever wondered what happened to Ralphie, wonder no more, as A Christmas Story 2 catches up with the kid five years later.
This time, he's moved on from a BB gun and onto wanting a car.
All of your favorite characters return too -- Randy, Flick and Schwartz, and of course, Ralphie's parents. Only, since it's been nearly THIRTY years since the original, none of the actors are back. (Have you seen Peter Billingsley/Ralphie lately?) Oh, Daniel Stern, what are you doing in this movie? Sigh.
His little brother even gets a new outfit from Aunt Claire this go-around, though it's not nearly as embarrassing as Ralphie's pink bunny outfit. Even the leg lamp makes a comeback.
If the trailer is any indication, the whole thing looks downright anemic in the laughs department.
If you're inclined to catch up with Ralphie and the gang, you can look for the A Christmas Story 2 DVD or Blu-ray on October 30th, 2012.
Needless to say,fans of the original are outraged by what looks to be a disgraceful (and entirely un-necessary) sequel.
