On October 16th, 2007, 20th Century Fox released Jingle All The Way - Family Fun Edition. This is the extended cut specially supervised by director Brian Levant. This runs at 94 minutes verus 89 minutes for the theatrical cut. This edition features the following additions...

1.) Instead of Howard going right after the woman in the car, he first sees another woman (Yeardley Smith) with a matching fur coat. He sees a TurboMan package in her bag and offers her money. She takes it and walks away. He takes it out and discovers that it is TurboMan's sidekick, Booster. He then runs after the woman in the car.

2.) In the following scene of Howard traveling to different toy stores looking for TurboMan, the 'Jingle all the Way' song is replaced by "The Christmas Song".

3.) A scene inside Howard's GMC when they're driving to Santa's warehouse where it shows Howard saying his "We've yet to see a sign of that supposed Turbo Man doll" sentence. The mall Santa doesn't sing his "Little Boy Who Santa Claus Forgot" song in the car.

4.) Additional dialogue in the warehouse, as well as the Mall Santa and all the other Santas singing a chorus of "Little Boy Who Santa Claus Forgot".

5.) The rock version of "Jingle all the way" plays as Howard fights the warehouse Santas

6.) An extra scene of Myron Larabee describing the Johnny 7 O.M.A gun to Howard.

7.) Additional dialogue between Howard and the cops at the warehouse.

8.) A scene with Howard riding home in a tow truck after his car had been stripped where he's rehearsing how he was going to explain what happened to him to his wife.

9.) An alternate ending: instead of the ending at the parade, the film fades back to Howard's house.

Yes, "Jingle All the Way" is chock full of bad acting and ridiculous situations, but hey, it's a Holiday comedy, and a darn good one! And, for those of us who are really into Christmas shopping and have been on that search for the elusive, must have toy of the year, it really touches a nerve!

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Howard Langston, a workaholic father who's failing with his family. He is constantly breaking promises and missing family events simply by being absent-minded and overly concerned with his business. When he shows up far too late for his son Jamie's Karate presentation, he realizes he's got some major sucking up to do. Howard immediately offers to get his son anything he wants for Christmas as a quick fix. But, little does Howard know that the toy Jamie wants, the official Turbo Man action figure, is the hottest toy of the season! No stores in town have one, and tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!!

Howard gets an early start in the morning, arriving at a toy store that hasn't opened yet and already has a large crowd outside. Here, he meets his biggest competition, an unstable mailman named Myron (Sinbad). Myron is also an inexperienced shopper whose son has asked for a Turbo Man figure. Both men are shocked and angered when everyone in the store mocks them upon hearing what they are looking for, and this is where their heated rivalry begins. Howard and Myron bump into each other at location after location in their search for the evasive toy and continue to physically abuse each other at nearly every encounter, and every bit of it is quite hilarious! In addition to dealing with Myron's attacks while searching for Turbo Man, Howard has to keep tabs on his intrusive neighbor, Tim (Phil Hartman), who is continuously making plays for Howard's wife, Liz (Rita Wilson).

It's not going to win an academy award. It's not going to be the best acted or scripted movie that you will see. Arnie's acting, 'nough said. However, my family and I have seen this moview every holiday season, and quite honestly, this is the pick of the litter. Second,third and subsequent viewings were always more appreciative than the first. It is unique, and really hits upon the Christmas experience. Phil Hartman is great, as is Arnie. I know for the next 30 years my family will watch this every Christmas season, and I'm glad that Arnie took the risk to make a comedic Christmas experience.

I thought that this film was funny... It is a stab at the last minute shopping rush when the father forgets to buy his kid a Turbo Man for Christmas. It was so nice to see Arnold Schwartzenegger playing something besides killer Robots or Conan..
I think that the critics were too hard on this little movie... I urge you to see this movie and to have a laugh... After all, it was meant to be funny...

"Jingle All the Way", is an oddity in the huge offering of Christmas movies that get an airing during the festive season each year. While it certainly is not to everyone's taste and lacks the sentimental and affirming message of so many other offerings at this time it can also be viewed as a quite candid illustration of what has happened to Christmas for many people where commercialism has taken over from the original purpose of the holidays. Arnold Schwarzeneggar is not someone you would automatically associate with the likes of James Stewart, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope as a Christmas icon but aside from his "Terminator", type roles he has proven himself quite adept at broad comedy and he handles his frantic role in "Jingle All the Way", very well. Never could this movie be called a Christmas classic and I personally feel a bit uneasy with the message it is conveying about the Christmas season and what it represents but the best way to approach it is as the frantic, broad comedy it most certainly is, choc full of pratfalls and slap stick that makes it a definite variation on the more traditional Christmas fare being offered.

"Jingle All the Way", opens with harried salesman Howard Langston (Arnold Swarzenegger), missing yet another one of his son Jamie's (Jake Llyod)activites, this being his karate class award ceremony. Neglectful also of his wife Liz (Rita Wilson) Howard continually makes promises to both of them that he will find more time for family matters however his work always ends up taking priority. Howard says to Jamie that he will make up fo rhis neglect and asks him what does he especially want for Christmas. Jamie asks for the hugely popular Turbo Man action figure which has been largely out of stock in stores since Thanksgiving.
