Excerpt: Everyone who is a parent all have their own horrid stories of a certain popular toy they wanted their child to have only to have to hunt and fight there way through crowds of people fighting to get it to. What comes to mind for me in the early 80's when folks went nuts for the cabbage patch dolls, and in the late 90's for the Elmo doll. Crazy but true what parents will do for their kids.
Excerpt: A nice film to have in Xmas film collection. I wasn't expecting much as a blu-ray disc but the edition overall is better than the average blu-ray which was a bonus. If you are a Schwarzenegger fan you must have this film.
Summary: Sometimes critics mistake.This is definitely an example.You see some movies don't need to be reviewed,you just need to watch them first,and then judge your feelings. So idea of the movie is great,and its pretty familiar to EVERY father on Christmas.And that's why people like to associate themselves with Arnie's character.There are a lot of misadventures(you wont remember every after ending i promise),but they actually work out pretty entertaining,sometimes even laughably...
Excerpt: This has always been my favorite Christmas movie. It's completely unrealistic and predictable, but is enjoyable. I first saw this when it came out in 1996, when I was 12 years old. I've watched it every Christmas since then. The storyline is great, and there are some laughs throughout. The extended version has some great moments, so be sure to check that out! I wasn't expecting much from this transfer, but I was surprised, and for the better. It looks pretty good.
Summary: This movie is so ridiculous, but so funny at the same time. I watch it every Christmas just to hear many of the Schwarzenegger phrases like: - Who told you you could eat my cookies? - Put the cookie down...NOW! - Nobody likes you Booster (maybe Sinbad's line) - I'm not a pervert... and the many times he says "Jamie", I hated that darn brat...what a spoiled kid Anakin was.
Did the final product mean to age so well and stand as the true meaning of Christmas? Was it satire or all a very lucky accident? Either way, its fun

Summary: Satires are hard to come by. Good satires are much more rare. Satires that fooled everyone, from the audience to the actors playing in the film are toughest to find. Jingle All The Way achieves just that. By throwing a social commentary joke over the heads of audiences instead of into their minds, and then by delivering a biting message that stands just as true today as it did when it first came out, Jingle All The Way went from disappointment to one of the most...
Summary: 'Jingle All The Way' is a Christmas story about merchandising and family. A lot of people seemed to really hate this movie, but I did not think it was all that bad. Sure, some of the action and the story was not the best, but I thought it did provoke a lot of laughter. The scenes with Arnie at the warehouse filled with Santas and elves was funny, and it had a good ending with the father becoming the hero after all.
