A Christmas Story: TBS

Whether it’s the etiquette of the Triple Dog Dare or the science of marrying wet tongues to frozen poles, A Christmas Story is the most educational film many of us saw as kids. Mostly we learned from Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley) how to bag a Daisy Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle without pissing off the Old Man. Think of it as It’s a Wonderful Life for post-Reagan generations as it morphs from cult to classic 20 years down the road.

EXTRAS And where are the Parkers? Billingsley is the only one present in the DVD extras. Also missing: a nifty-sounding deleted Flash Gordon sequence he mentions on the commentary track.
