really gotta appreciate the mother in this movie. the way she handles the fight that ralphie gets into really earns her an award. this is mothering at its best. then there’s the soap sequence which is old school mothering. i hope they keep showing this movie as the years go on, but there are some outdated and less than woke moments that i could see people getting their panties in a bunch over if the woke-inati keep going like they have been. fantastic film.
