220 – Christmas Stories

Whenever the Christmas holidays roll around, one film almost always comes to mind. One that reminds us about the gift of giving, the joy of being a kid on Christmas morning and pleasures of winning a major award.

That’s right, the merry gentlemen of ’40 Going On 14′ are heading to Indiana again, but this time it’s to talk about ‘A Christmas Story’! However, we’re also going to talk about its second cousin, twice removed, ‘A Christmas Story 2’.

It you’re looking for some Daniel Stern, to add to your holiday cheer, we’ve got it. Turn off ‘Little Orphan Annie’ and tune into us, because Christmas only comes once a year!

118 – Santa Cons

What do Bob Hope and Billy Bob Thornton have in common? They both slept with Angelina Jolie, but then again who hasn’t? Actually, we’re referring to films featuring Christmas con artists!

This week on ’40 Going On 14′ we watch ‘The Lemon Drop Kid’ from 1951 and ‘Bad Santa’ from 2003. Two very differnt movies, but both involving a holiday heist. If you enjoy your Christmas with a side of cursing, then this may be the episode for you. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and the only Christmas podcast featuring a talking walnut.

Did I mention Tor Johnson? You’re welcome.
