Holiday Movie Month-tacular kicks into high gear with this week's guest, Eleanor Kagan from the excellent Bonnie and Maude podcast. Eleanor joins me to watch Ralphie, Flick, and all the rest in A Christmas Story for the first time.

We talk about what makes the movie an enduring seasonal favorite, Eleanor's own unique holiday movie traditions, and exactly how long we'd last watching Ralphie pine for a BB gun for 24-hours straight. Plus, Eleanor shares the four major life lessons she learned after finally watching this beloved holiday classic. 

Be sure to follow Eleanor on Twitter and listen to Bonnie and Maude. The Batman Returns episode is particularly entertaining.

We grade each storyline and ponder whether movies from the early '00s feel dated now. (Remember Dido??) Plus, we pay tribute to the many (mediocre) rom-coms that followed in Love Actually's whimsical wake.

Bill tells us how he's managed to avoid Clarence the Angel, Mr. Potter, Zuzu's petals and the rest every holiday season. We reflect on the underrated genius of Jimmy Stewart and who would star in the inevitable It's a Wonderful Life remake. Plus, we ponder the meaning of the phrase "See ya in the funny pages!" 

Follow Bill on Twitter and visit his website to check out his excellent short film This Is What We Know
