Arnold Schwarzenegger – Jingle All the Way (1996)
One of the funniest X’max movie ever.
Jingle All the Way is a 1996 family comedy film directed by Brian Levant and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. The name is taken from a line in the Christmas song “Jingle Bells”. This is the last comedy to date that Schwarzenegger starred in.
Howard Langston (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a workaholic mattress salesman, who has a hard time finding time for his wife, Liz (Rita Wilson), and his young son, Jamie (Jake Lloyd) – especially when compared to next door superdad divorce, Ted Maltin (Phil Hartman). After breaking his word again by missing Jamie’s karate grading (from yellow to purple), Howard resolves to redeem himself and his marriage by fulfilling Jamie’s ultimate Christmas wish, getting an action figure of Turbo-Man, a popular children’s TV superhero.
Unfortunately, as is the habit with him, Howard had promised to buy that figure earlier that year and then promptly forgotten about it. To make things even harder, Turbo-Man toys are the must-have gifts of the season, and stocks of Turbo-Man toys are quickly drying up all over the country. Desperate not to disappoint his family again, Howard embarks on an epic quest through Minneapolis on Christmas Eve to find the toy everyone’s looking for.
