It is now summer in the Parker family; and the usual amount of numerous events are happening in their separate lives. Ralphie is searching for the perfect top to use to beat the school bully with, the Old Man is in battle with their hillbilly neighbors, the Bumpus, while eagerly awaiting the discovery of the perfect fishing spot, and the Mother is attempting to collect all of the pieces of a glass china set at a local movie theater.

"My Summer Story" was intended to be the film's original title before MGM, presumably fearing unfair comparisons to A Christmas Story (1983), retitled it to disassociate it from its predecessor. By the time the film reached video, it reverted back to its former title. See more »
When Leopold Doppler (Glenn Shadix) is being pelted by the gravy boats, he shouts "Rosebud" from Citizen Kane and "Top of the World, Ma!" from White Heat. However neither of these films were released at the time the movie was supposed to take place, the summer of 1940. See more »
This film was excellent! While some may argue that it is not up to par with "A Christmas Story" it is definately a good and faithful sequel. Unfortunately none of the same cast (probably because all the child actors were now too old) but still great acting all around. The story is awesome, and the narration classic! One to definately check out. 8/10.
