Review: 7.2 out of 10 stars.
A mature mind living in a child’s body and wanted to have a BB gun for Christmas, along the way, showing his wit and growing up. If it’s shown in more recent years, it would have gotten negative criticism for its promoting guns. But in the early 80s it’s just a kid who’s trying to get what he wants.
Child star, who fast forwards 20 years and starred in Elf, to more recent years as a director, was definitely playing a great part with all the adult gestures.
The famous Chinese turkey scene did got a few chuckles.
No after the credits.
