Jingle All the Way Reviews
Overall, Jingle All The Way is a movie that mustn't be taken seriously, it's aim is to be extremely ludicrous and idiotic but it is a shame it's ruined by a third act that is way too long and merely used to advertise a bunch of different toys as well as displaying a poorly executed live-action cartoon charged with laughable effects. Nonetheless, Jingle All The Way serves its purpose of being an entertaining and fairly relatable Christmas movie but it contains too much satire on materialism and an overlong third act to make it stand the test of time but any movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger will be quite enjoyable due to his energy, likeability and charismatic performances that this film is fairly irresistible despite its huge problems but it is unfairly hated upon due to its silliness, which the film happily embraces upon, but at least it contains my favourite Schwarzenegger line - "Put dat cookie down! NOW!"
The film finds it hard to balance the cynical narrative of consumerism and the slap stick comedy.
