In 1996, Arnold Schwarzenegger traveled back in time from the future to terminate holiday blockbuster comedies. He nearly succeeded with the slapstick family film Jingle All The Way , which asks the question: How far would you go to buy your son’s love?

Schwarzenegger plays Howard Langston, a mattress salesman that’s let his family down one too many times. His son Jamie (Jake Lloyd, future pod-racer) wants the number-one toy on every kids’ Christmas list – the deluxe Turbo Man action figure “with the arms and legs that move and the boomerang shooter and his rock’n roller jet pack and the realistic voice activator that says 5 different phrases including, ‘It’s Turbo time!’” Of course, next door-neighbor Ted (Phil Hartman) is a super-dad that’s got a Turbo Man waiting under the tree and plenty of advice for Howard.

Howard sets out on an epic quest for the perfect Christmas gift that most of us can relate to, with completely unrelatable results! Racing against a rival father (Sinbad) in search of the same toy, Howard must fight crooked mall Santas (led by Jim Belushi), storm a radio station, accidentally assault police officers, intentionally assault a reindeer and basically wreak more havoc than a T-800 while trying to find “a stupid little plastic doll”!

Join us for one of the strangest holiday films ever, and whatever you do: DON’T touch Arnold’s cookies!
