As Ralphie struggles with all of his efforts to make it a great Christmas, he says to his wife, played by Erinn Hayes, “My dad made this all look so easy.” She replies, “That doesn’t mean it was easy.”
Of course, there seem to be plenty of laugh-out-loud moments in the film featuring Ralphie’s two kids and his old childhood friends. For instance, his friend Flick says, “Schwartz, I triple dog dare you!” Schwartz goes down a huge slide and wipes out.
Fans of the original movie will likely not want to miss this one. It premieres on HBO Max on Nov. 17. Watch the trailer below:
