‘A Christmas Story Live!’: Phenomenal or Flop?

Published on December 19th, 2017 | Updated on December 19th, 2017 | By FanFest

Many fans of all things Christmas tuned into Fox last night for the live production of A Christmas Story. The timeless classic is a favorite, so much so that it airs for a full 24 hours on the big day, and we watch it more than once every holiday season. There’s something about that leg lamp, shooting your eye out thing that really sums up the Christmas experience.

So, we have to admit, we were curious and a bit excited about A Christmas Story Live. However, by the end of it, we weren’t sure how to feel. Of course, adaptations are rarely ever as good as the original. Sans a few exceptions, but this just didn’t sit right with us. Most fans online felt the same way, and they weren’t shy about saying it all over social media.

Personally, we do have to give it to the kids, their dancing, and their ability to handle such a massive live performance so well.

Otherwise, the big question being asked is this. Was it the missed focus of the experience, the humor that didn’t always seem so humorous, or maybe all of it wrapped up in a not so neat package? It all depends on who you ask. However, the general consensus is that the bad outweighs the good on this one.

However, there were a few positive reviews.

So, we’re asking you. Were you a strong supporter or naysayer of the live production? Did your opinion fall somewhere in the middle? Let us know.
