185: SFFCH – Santa With Muscles [1996]

186 Santa with Muscles

Merry Wrestle-Mas, to one and all! Our very special Spoiler Filled festive tradition continues for year 3 and this time it’s the main man himself: “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. Much like his wrestling career beforehand, he much utilize his great charisma to mask his general lack of ability in 1996’s Santa With Muscles, where he plays an amnesiac douche-bag millionaire who is convinced he is Santa and must save the local orphanage from closure. Now if you think that all sounds a little bit schmaltzy and cliché then you have no idea! So come and listen to us ‘enjoy’ this yuletide spectacle as we discuss: the film’s child logic, 60’s Batman Villains, bondage Santas, how a young Mila Kunis is somehow the best actor of the bunch and how the magic of Christmas is explained away through explosive, electric crystals.
