Great fun
4 April 1999 | by (Maidenhead - UK) – See all my reviews

Everything about this movie is great. It has a great cast (With a wonderfully sleazy Phil Hartman). A great script with loads of laughter.

It's obviously created as a spoof for the Christmas buying crazes that go on in the world, where everybody must have that one very special toy.

It has the look and feel of a children's movie - but I'm not sure it is, or was ever designed to be.

Don't expect a Schwarzie action movie. It's more a live-action cartoon.

Jingle all the way is a movie I've seen a couple of times now - and I'll watch it again and again. Good fun. 8/10.
