Review - Roadtrip for Ralphie

Normally I’d prefer to see this sort of two-people-with-a-camcorder thing confined to short bursts on YouTube. But this one actually managed to rise above the cut. This pair of  videographers are obsessed with A Christmas Story, so they travel throughout the Midwest and Canada looking for filming locations and artifacts. Along the way they find the original Red Ryder BB gun, the nearly-demolished school where some of the movie was shot, and the ever-elusive location of the Chinese restaurant from the end. Familiar subjects and the creators’ enthusiasm make this charming rather than amateurish. Mildly amusing
