Put the cookie down....,
This review is from: Jingle All the Way [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Howard Langston, a salesman for a mattress company is constantly at his job, and also constantly disappoints his son.
After he misses his son's karate exposition, he tries hard to come up with a way to make it up to him. His son tells him that what he wants for Christmas is an action figure of Turbo Man.
Unfortunately for Howard, it's Christmas Eve, and every store is sold out of Turbo Man.
Howard must travel all over town and compete with everybody else including a mail man to find Turbo Man, and to make it to parade...
Another one of those movies that was really badly received on initial release, but has gained a little following. I for one think the movie is great, and while it does have some really silly scenes, it keeps the spirit of Christmas going.
Schwarzeneggar is having a ball with his movie, and really shows the comic chops he was missing from Junior. But this was released at a time when the star was faltering a little from the A-list, and apart from True Lies and Eraser, he never really recovered.
But this movie is a family favourite now, and like several other Christmas movies, it gets viewed every year.
It's a fun packed movie for the kids, and it has a great running time, so no one gets bored.
Go on, admit you like it, it's Christmas....
