Reviews
Mine: Nostolgic, sweet. The best Christmas movie ever made? Very funny. The book (In God We Trust, all Others Pay Cash) is even better.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Humorist Jean Shepherd's delightful memoir of growing up in the 1940s and wanting nothing so much as a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Shepherd narrates in the first person, and Billingsley portrays him (delightfully) as a boy. Truly funny for kids and grownups alike; wonderful period flavor. Based on a portion of In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash. Shepherd appears unbilled as a department store customer. Followed by IT RUNS IN MY FAMILY.
