A Christmas Story 2

Seriously? Well, I guess who could have guessed this would happen at some point.

Also, I did a forum search before making this thread so don't kill me if there is already a thread about this out there and buried.

Always had a soft spot for Daniel Stern, but for fuck's sake!

This isn't just a crime against cinema but all of humanity.

Re: A Christmas Story 2

I've never been a big fan of the original. It's good for Christmas background noise, but that's about it. Not sure why; it's just never done anything for me.

Never liked the original either, but I can still say with some certainty that this is a bad idea.

I fucking despise A Christmas Story. I never want to be around a TV w/ access to TBS during that time. Fuck that movie to hell.

No. Just no.

The original is one of the best cult classics...ney...classics of all time. What's next--a direct-to-video sequel called, "Return to Shawshank"?

lol! What is surprising is that this movie is already made and ready to go. I guess they figured that was the best way so that people wouldn't even have a chance to protest.

Re: A Christmas Story 2

I was going to say, It Runs in the Family was from the mid-90s.

This is like Christmas Vacation 2 with none of the original cast. Absolutely unnecessary.

The first A Christmas Story was my dad's all-time favorite movie, but after he passed away I can't watch it anymore. Not that I really liked it that much to begin with.

Too bad Bob Clark's dead. I'm sure he would've directed this.

Considering his last two films were Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 and the direct-to-TV movie Karate Dog, I wouldn't put it past him.

Really surprised by the "A Christmas Story" hate. What is there not to like?

I always thought people were divided on it. You either love it or hate it.

Re: A Christmas Story 2

If they were going to do this at all, it should have been with Peter Billingsley as the father, set sometime around 1965-70.

Re: A Christmas Story 2

How can this movie suck? You got Daniel Stern and director Brian Levant has given us:
  • Problem Child 2
  • Beethoven
  • The Flintstones
  • Jingle All the Way
  • The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas
  • Snow Dogs
  • Are We There Yet?
  • The Spy Next Door
It's a recipe for success!

Re: A Christmas Story 2

I love Problem Child 2. That little fucking troll girl is funny as fuck. "Who the hell are you?"

I just heard about this movie this past week. I thought they were just talking about making it, not that it was done already.

I like bad movies, but I wont even try to watch this.

Oh yes, this sounds like a splendid idea... Of course, it couldn't be any worse than Christmas Vacation 2.
