We just couldn’t believe that Jamie has never experienced the festive insanity that is Jingle All The Way, a crazy Schwarzenegger comedy vehicle from 1996 where he plays our muscly, well-off, Austrian/American every-man trying desperately to prove his love for his son through materialism and a slapstick search for this years popular toy. So, much like the film itself, it was a no-brainer to make it our special Christmas podcast. Rich, Abi, Ant and Jamie have watched this film commonly heralded as one of the worst Christmas films ever, but perhaps we all have a different perspective. Is it just our festive merriment or could it be this film is surprisingly well constructed? Listen in to find out about this and other curious stocking fillers like bodybuilders in a jungle gym, Mall-Santa crime syndicates, Schwarzenegger’s best on screen chase involving a bouncy ball and why Phil Hartman is sorely missed.
