A Christmas Story

Google's got a bunch a bunch of movies on sale right now in the Android Market for just 99 cents. But do you really need to go past "A Christmas Story?" It's got mystery. It's got intrigue. It's got a kid who gets his tongue stuck to a lightpost flag pole. And it's just 99 cents to rent on your Android smartphone or tablet. Sold.

It's .99 cents rental NOT for sale.

Jet300 says:

The term "On Sale" can be used synonymously with "On Special" .. Phil means the rentals are being offered at a "Sale" price of $.99

sanibel says:

Good point. But, really, it's more about what others are saying: Let me buy the movies outright. (Sold..)

jcrome04 says:

I hate renting. Wish I could buy it.

jsgraphicart says:

Whats the point of renting it? They play this every single year on tv. Usually all day long.

stevozip says:

Ugh, I despise that movie. Too much money to spend on it IMO.

kstoutdog says:

great movie... I have it on DVD... the kids watch it all year long...
I wish we could buy these digital movies and not rent them...

technomom says:

No Google, I will not buy movies from you until you lift the restriction on my rooted phone.

Correction: The kid gets his tongue stuck to a flagpole, not a lightpost. Just wanted to point that out to have the article be correct. :-)

Ah! You're right. I regret the error. :p

ftl900 says:

So rent the DVD from Redbox for $1, then rip it to your PC.

I use Aimersoft DVD ripper- I used the trial and liked it so much that I paid for it, about $35 or so... one of the few programs I've ever purchased.

I transfer movies to my android, and keep 6 or so on it at any time. (On my rooted phone.)

slayerpsp says:

I have it on HD DVD got it for under 5 bucks over a year ago along with the 360 HD DVD player for 30 bucks

MthII says:

Zylograth says:

Forget this rental junk, I want to OWN!!!

stevozip says:

Actually, the carton in the movie is missing the F from fragile, which is why he thought it was Italian. He says "Rajeelay".

No, it's Fra-geel-ay, and the whole internet agrees.

arcadelion says:

I've never seen this movie, but this may change my mind

cowboys2000 says:

24 hour marathon this weekend.....

mr nruz says:

i must live in another world cuz ive never heard of this movie or even seen it

BartmanJax says:

Here's a bit little trivia about the kid who gets his tongue stuck to the flagpole. Scott Schwartz, who also stared in the "The Toy" opposite Jackie Gleason and Richard Prior, later became a porn star. So be careful out there this winter. You never now what old man winter will do to you.
