In the movie Jingle All the Way, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Howard Langston, a workaholic businessman who has a bad habit of breaking promises to his son Jamie. His latest blunder is forgetting to buy a Turbo-Man doll, the most popular Christmas toy of the year, for Jamie's present. With Christmas Eve quickly approaching, Howard must embark on a mad dash through the city to find the elusive Turbo-Man doll. His journey is made all the more difficult by the fact that every other parent in town is also searching for the same toy. To make matters worse, Howard must also contend with a crazed mailman named Myron (played by Sinbad) who is also vying for the last remaining Turbo-Man doll.

Along the way, Howard encounters a series of misadventures that only get increasingly absurd as he gets closer and closer to securing the coveted toy. From a seedy Santa Claus ring to a warehouse full of counterfeit toys, Howard navigates his way through a world gone mad with Christmas fever.

The film is a comedic yet heartwarming look at the chaos that surrounds the holiday season. It provides a satirical take on the consumerism and commercialization that often come along with Christmas, while still delivering a message about the importance of spending time with the ones you love.

Schwarzenegger delivers a standout performance, showcasing both his comedic and dramatic chops as a father who is desperate to make things right with his son. Sinbad turns in a memorable performance as the postal worker gone rogue, and Phil Hartman lights up the screen as Howard's sleazy neighbor who has his sights set on Howard's wife.

The film's climax takes place at the annual Wintertainment Parade, where Howard finally comes face to face with Myron and his own shortcomings as a father. As the crowds watch on, Howard's determination to make things right with Jamie reaches a new level, resulting in a heartwarming ending that will leave viewers feeling nostalgic for their own childhood Christmases.

Overall, Jingle All the Way is a fun, festive romp that will have you laughing and rooting for Howard until the very end. It's a perfect movie to curl up with on a cold winter day and get in the holiday spirit.

Jingle All the Way is a 1996 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 34.
