Synopsis


Jingle All the Way
The true meaning of Christmas -- desperate last-minute shopping -- is the subject of this holiday-themed comedy. Howard Langston (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a mattress salesman with a bad habit of putting his work ahead of his family. His son Jamie (Jake Lloyd), who wishes Dad would pay more attention to him, wants only one thing for Christmas -- a Turbo Man action figure, with all the accessories. Howard promises both Jamie and his wife Liz (Rita Wilson) that there will indeed be a Turbo Man under the tree for Jamie on Christmas morning, but come December 24, Howard realizes that he hasn't actually bought the toy yet. Seemingly it would be no great problem to head on down to the toy store and pick one up, but it just so happens that Turbo Man has been the hottest ticket of the holiday season, and literally thousands of parents are scrambling for the last few action figures. Howard then spends a hilariously hellish Christmas Eve madly scrambling from store to store in desperate search of a Turbo Man; in the course of his adventures, Howard keeps crossing paths Myron Larabee (Sinbad), a postal worker who wants a Turbo Man even more desperately than Howard. And on the home front, Howard has to worry about Ted Maltin (Phil Hartman), an annoyingly perfect suburbanite obsessed with Christmas who has eyes for Liz. This was the second film for child actor Jake Lloyd, who three years later would gain international attention when he was cast as the young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Arnold is back! This time its comedic Arnold playing opposite Sinbad in a parody of overzealous shoppers fighting over the "hottest toy of the Christmas season". Though not a masterpiece by any means, nor his best performance, the movie is essentially a mash-up of Arnold's light-hearted Kindergarten Cop and non-action Twins persona rolled into one. In it, he's a sensitive father figure just trying to please his son, whom he feels he disappoints at every turn. He therefore promises to fulfill his son's wish for his favorite action figure toy, unaware that he'll later receive some stiff competition from the wise-cracking Sinbad, who likewise, has his eyes set on obtaining the very same toy for his own son. Their playful banter results in an all out battle to claim the last remaining action figure, setting up a roller coaster of laughs and non-stop hijinks between the two. A great holiday movie to watch with the kiddos. 3 1/2 Stars

    Very fun movie to watch and one that my wife and I haven't seen in quite some time. Best Buy had this for a great price and couldn't pass up seeing this story again and adding this film to our holiday collection. Very funny movie with a hint of truth in it as to what parents will do to get their children that gift they must have. Always brings back memories of watching people fight over Cabbage Patch Dolls when I was a kid!

    Yankee Swap Gift

    Got this as a company Yankee Swap gift for the holidays. I always buy holiday DVDs/Blu Rays as part of my gift, and it usually goes to someone who doesn't appreciate it (which happened again this year). That said, I thought this was my best selection. Arnold is very underrated as a comedic actor. While it's not a classic like Kindergarten Cop, this is a fun, zany movie that will keep kids entertained.

    Sinbad Plus Arnold Equals Epic

    Sinbad wasn't in a lot of movies, but I actually enjoyed his acting in movies I watched as a kid. I think he is a good comedian. Having Arnold and Sinbad together is a great mix because they are both quirky and a little crazy. Some of the other acting in the movie wasn't great. The plot line is simple and compelling. This is an enjoyable kid friendly Christmas flick that luckily didn't get a sequel.

    Cheesy Movie But I Like It

    Yeah, this movie isn't the best. But I'm from the Twin Cities where it was filmed so there's extra enjoyment for me watching this movie. It has all the tropes a holiday movie has including the happy ending. But, I enjoy it and always make it part of my annual Christmas movie marathon. Not Arnold's best, but certainly not his worst either.

    Fun movie, blu-ray is unnecessary

    I'd only seen this movie once before so I bought it on a whim to add to my Christmas collection, and I'm glad I did. It's cheesy 90's fun and I love seeing Phil Hartman again. The blu-ray had a few hiccups and the picture paused about a half dozen times for a second or two, and it's not shot in HD to begin with so if the DVD is cheaper or more convenient just go with the DVD.
