We liked it, too. But the IMDB says it grossed only a little over $70,000, which is a very small profit for a feature film.

I could see that since it was not really pushed. First time i ever heard about it when Stationed in Adak, Alaska and saw it on VHS and didn't find anyting else so grabbed it and loved it. Tried talking about it to other people and they give you this blank stare like no you like you have Lobster crawling at your ears.

It's a sequel to "A Christmas Story"---same characters, different cast. Not bad, but not a patch on the original, either! Essentially, it's Ralphie's summer vacation, plus a further adventure featuring the Bumpuses. I got the DVD for Christmas.
My wife likes this film, but I have never seen it. I would like to, though.

The direct-to-dvd film A Christmas Story 2 (which looks awful!) did not do good at all (by all accounts it is bad).
But, if I'm not mistaken "My Summer Story" is actually based upon Jean Shepherd material, so that's why it's probably a lot better!

It is sprinkled from a few of his stories and yes A christmas Story 2 was bad but still not bad for a film.

Well, you could build your own, if you can get ahold of some country ham!

It's narrated by Shepherd, and he's one of three (IIRC) credited on the screenplay.
