Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad star in this frivolous comedy about two fathers who are trying to locate and purchase the same hugely popular action toy on Christmas Eve. Schwarzenegger plays a busy father who makes lots of promises to his son that he can't keep, while Sinbad is a crazy postman just trying to make his boy happy. There are some truly comic moments in the film, such as the sight of Schwarzenegger being chased by a reindeer, and the obsequious efforts of a neighbor (Phil Hartman) to insinuate himself on Schwarzenegger's wife in the big man's continual absence. But for the most part, Jingle All the Way is a disposable, live-action cartoon. A DVD is available. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Howard Langston, a workaholic father who's failing with his family. He is constantly breaking promises and missing family events, simply by being absent minded and overly concerned with his business. When he shows up far too late for his son Jamie's Karate presentation, he realizes he's got some major sucking up to do. Howard immediately offers to get his son anything he wants for Christmas as a quick fix. But little does Howard know that the toy Jamie wants, the official Turbo Man action figure, is the hottest toy of the season! No stores in town have one! And tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!!
Howard gets an early start in the morning, arriving at a toy store that hasn't opened yet and already has a large crowd outside. Here he meets his biggest competition, an unstable mailman named Myron (Sinbad). Myron is also an inexperienced shopper who's son has asked for a Turbo Man figure. Both men are shocked and angered when everyone in the store mocks them upon hearing what they are looking for, and this is where their heated rivalry begins. Howard and Myron bump into each other at location after location in their search for the evasive toy, and continue to physically abuse each other at nearly every encounter, and every bit of it is quite hilarious! And in addition to dealing with Myron's attacks while searching for Turbo Man, Howard has to keep tabs on his intrusive neighbor, Tim (Phil Hartman), who is continuously making plays for Howard's wife, Liz (Rita Wilson).Read more ›
First - unless you watch it to the conclusion, you may think it's about parental materialism and purchased loyalties. IT'S NOT! In fact, the end of the movie very firmly reinforces the idea that Christmas is NOT about materialism.
I don't want to spoil the plot for you, but so many bad reviews may lead you away from this movie if I do not dispell at least some of them. The movie is in fact quite heart-warming. Where others have said that the kid is annoying and materialistic, he is the one who best demonstrates true christmas spirit at the end by admiting that it is not the TOY that matters at all - in fact he GIVES IT AWAY after getting it, in favour of a BETTER gift: his own father.
The supposedly leacherous character of hartman is, in fact, leacherous. But his target (Arnold's wife) quite firmly affirms her monogomous loyalty by cold-cocking the leacher upside his noggin. Also, at the end.
And Sinbad's performance is pure, well, Sinbad! I love this guy. An overweight postman trying to outrun the President's Fitness Council chairman! HA! Running down the street throwing mail overboard to lighten the load! I don't think this part was written for Sinbad... No, I think he improvised most of it himself! It's great!
Don't listen to the naysayers. I suppose these people completely missed the point of the movie which was driven home very strongly in the end.
Buy it! I did, and it's one of my favourites.
I think that anyone who has gone through the pains of last-minute Christmas shopping, especially for young children, will identify with this film. This action/drama/comedy is sure to get Christmas lovers to feel the warmth of the spirit of the season. Furthermore, Jingle All the Way sends a very positive message to parents, that in the end the true parental hero is the one who has the love, trust, and respect of his/her kids.
Schwarzenegger and Sinbad are comedic and hilarious. Jingle All the Way proves that Schwarzenegger is talented in roles other than as action hero. This is his best comedy since Kindergarten Cop. It's better than Kindergarten Cop.
I don't have any criticisms directed towards Jake Lloyd. Some people think he's spoiled, but that's his role. He's playing a young boy who wants his father to be involved with his life.
