I liked a lot of the movie, which is genial and has a lot of energy, but I was sort of depressed by its relentlessly materialistic view of Christmas, and by the choice to go with action and (mild) violence over dialogue and plot.

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

While there's some genuine laughs and warm sentimentality to be had, Brian Levant's Jingle All the Way represents everything that's bad with Christmas today.

A career low-point for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes, even worse than Batman & Robin.
