Jingle All The Way – Family Fun Edition (DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: D



How bad is Brian Levant’s highly unfunny Jingle All The Way (1996) Christmas comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger?  It did not make Jake Lloyd a child star and wasted Robert Conrad, Rita Wilson, Jim Belushi, Sinbad and especially the late, great Phil Hartman in a film that could drive Evangelicals to Atheism.  At 122 minutes, it is worse than a warped old holiday record.


It is worse than ever, has not aged well a bit and is to be avoided at all costs.  If anyone gets the prized action figure Turboman, the only way this could work is if the doll came to life and zapped everyone.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image is soft and also shows its age, shot as well as can be expected by Director of Photography Victor J. Kemper, A.S.C., who makes it at least look good.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix uses the surrounds to some extent, but it is not a great mix and shows its age too.  Extras include three featurettes and two pointless games.
