Funny Holiday Fare
Don’t listen to the Scrooges who tell you this film is no good. It’s good-natured, fast-paced and often very funny, like a live-action cartoon. Arnold is one of those actors that come off larger-than-life but extremely likable because he’s not above poking fun at himself and his image. He’s not afraid to be totally goofy if it’ll get a laugh. He and Sinbad here have a nice, unforced comic chemistry together.
Besides being a comedy, the film shows the the total insanity and crass commercialization of the holiday season in this day and age, which is both funny and thought-provoking.
It may never be an enduring classic, but I laugh alot whenever I watch this movie. Put it on a double-bill with “A Christmas Story” for some great family holiday fun.
It Goes Way, Way Overboard
It seems to me that a really, really good movie could be made about the holiday shopping rush. So far, though, that really, really good movie hasn’t been made. “Jingle All The Way” didn’t fill the void.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Howard (Arnold Schwarzenegger) – who has a habit of letting his family down with broken promises – is suddenly reminded that he was supposed to buy the hottest new toy for his son for Christmas: a Turbo-Man doll; Turbo-Man being the new super-hero craze. Of course, Howard forgot, and now (on the day before Christmas) he has to desperately search for the doll, along with hundreds of others who want the same doll, and especially a mailman (played by Sinbad) who becomes his biggest rival in the quest.
This works for a little while. I personally thought that it went way overboard, though. That feeling probably started with the group of black market Santas at the warehouse who hoard cheap versions of hot toys to sell at exorbitant prices. It just seems to go crazy after that. It has some laughs. There’s no doubt about that. But it’s just too much. Everything seems too forced; too extreme. It’s not a bad caricature of the madness of the shopping craze (which I usually associate with Black Friday rather than Christmas Eve) and so it’s a reasonable critique of the more negative aspects of the holiday season, and it does make a point at the end that it’s family and not the “stuff” that really counts. So it’s not a disaster, but I think the whole concept could have been better used. (4/10)
