A Christmas Story, despite being a perennial holiday favorite, is objectively a terrible movie about depression-era consumerism and terrible people behaving terribly. There’s the long-suffering mom who can’t have anything for herself. The rageaholic father. The whiny brother. Ralphie’s childhood in which his biggest accomplishment is getting a gun (and beating up a bully). And worst of all: A family that openly laughs at Asian people.
Below, Honest Trailers‘ agrees with me and sends up the holiday classic.
