Some may well question why a sequel is needed almost 30 years later, but here it is, made directly for home video. Braeden Lemasters inherits the pivotal role of Ralphie, now a teen whose obsession with a BB gun has given way to his desire for a convertible car.
If you thought Mom (Stacey Travis, succeeding Melinda Dillon) was worried before, imagine her level of concern now. The gruff family patriarch also is present again, with Daniel Stern trying to fill the shoes and sharp tongue of the late Darren McGavin. ** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
