Parents need to know that A Christmas Story 2 is the sequel to the classic 1983 period comedy, A Christmas Story. The language is fairly strong for a family film -- several instances of "son of a bitch," for example, and deals more with adolescent attraction (Ralphie is smitten with the prettiest girl in his class) than the original. Otherwise there's the standard physical comedy and silly jokes that will make kids laugh aloud. Like with the first Christmas Story, the overarching message is that no matter what you get, the important thing about the holidays is spending them with family.
