Jingle All the Way won't win any awards for believability, but as purely escapist family entertainment on a grand scale it's a tough act to beat.

Here's Arnie, of all people, playing a bedraggled suburbanite, and his perversely amusing casting boosts a crass, sometimes nasty and finally funny celebration of holiday mass-merchandising and greed.

God forbid Arnold should have to shell out for one of those Spanish-speaking turbomen being hocked in the bad part of town.

In this formulaic star vehicle, Schwarzenegger gets to fly like Peter Pan, act like Superman--and fulfill all the fantasies kids may have about their fathers.

The film is rescued by a strong third act, but getting there is torture.

If it weren't for the credits 'A Brian Levant Film' and 'Directed by Brian Levant,' one would be certain that the director was Chris Columbus.

The practice of buying indulgences didn't die with the Middle Ages, it just sort of metastasized into something black and malignant at the heart of our society.
