Corny, but a lot fun for Chistmas time!
on January 5, 2017
We have a growing collection of Christmas movies we watch every year in my house. While not my favorite Christmas movie, there is a lot of humorous scenes and goofy behavior that makes this enjoyable for kids and adults. I am a big fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger action movies and this one is definitely quite a contrast to his other work, though there are actually quite a few action scenes; as Arnold struggles to find a long sold out gift for his son. It is also really entertaining to see Phil Hartman's humor in this movie. If you liked his work on Saturday Night Live, it really shines through here in a character that you love to hate.
I am always joking about various Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes from this movie: "Who told you, you could eat my cookies?" and "Put that cookie down, NOW!" It has become a tradition to watch this along with many Christmas movies each year. I am glad to finally own it instead of renting it.
