(CNN)Fox's "A Christmas Story Live!" didn't quite bring the holiday cheer on Sunday night.

The musical, a live remake of the 1983 movie about young Ralphie Parker's struggles leading up to Christmas Day, was widely panned by both viewers and critics. Actor Andy Walken, who plays Ralphie, is a dead ringer for Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in the movie.
