I can't stand a Christmas Story, it's so over played and over hyped. Sure it has many classic and memorable scenes, but i don't think it's anywhere near as good as top tier Christmas movies like It's a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th street and i just don't get why i have to suffer through watching it 3-4 times every year.
On Christmas Day last year, TBS played that movie ALL DAY. It was the only Christmas movie on that channel. That's definately WAY too much. As for my favorite Christmas movie, it's not a movie, it's more of a Christmas special that used too see air time when I was a kid, but not anymore. A Garfield Christmas was one of my favorites as a kid.
