Movie Reveiw: A Christmas Story 2

In this sequel to A Christmas Story, we join Ralphie and his family in celebrating Christmas 5 years later than the original movie in which Ralphie had to have a Red Ruder BB gun with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time. Of course, he no longer was interested in getting a BB gun. This time he wants a car. This dog loves the original movie, and I think this movie does a great job of keeping with the spirit of the original movie. This movie came out last year, and probably hasn't done that well, but perhaps that is partly because this movie was a direct to dvd movie. In my humble opinion, this movie should have been shown on the big screen in theatres. I think this movie hits a chord with most viewers because even the oldest Dogs among us can remember a time when we were so excited about gifts, and got just what we wanted. Those are wonderful times etched in our memories. The only disappointing part of the movie was that they did not get the Bumpeses hunting dogs. My guess is that they didn't have the budget to pay the dogs to appear. I give this movie doggy kisses, 4 paws up, some extra cuddle time, and of course, the inevitable doggy award for human excellence in film. That would be a 10 out of 10 on the human movie scale.
