Patron Exclusive Review #73

Don’t let us be the kid who Christmas forgot–pledge today!

Bad dad Arnold Schwarzenegger tries to fix his family problems by fighting the crowds and securing a highly coveted Christmas toy in the madcap holiday film Jingle All The Way. But can Hollywood’s biggest action star defend his comedic reputation against rampaging reindeer, a lecherous Phil Hartman (SNL), or a totally postal Sinbad (A Different World)?  And did Jake Lloyd grow up to be such a bratty Darth Vader just because he didn’t receive an action figure?

Howard Langston, a salesman for a mattress company, is constantly kept busy at his job, disappointing his son. After he misses his son's karate exposition, Howard vows to make it up to him by buying an action figure of his son's favorite television hero for Christmas. Unfortunately for Howard, it is Christmas Eve, and every store is sold out of Turbo Man. Now, Howard must travel all over town and compete with everybody else to find a Turbo Man action figure.
