In order for Howard and the mall Santa to enter the warehouse, the mall Santa has to use the password, "Jingle bells, Batman smells". Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared as himself in a photograph in Max Schrek's office in Batman Returns (1992), and he played Mr. Freeze in Batman & Robin (1997). See more »

As for you, Turbo Man...
we could use a man like you on the force.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Oh, I'm sorry about the bike, and the coffee, and the bus, and... the bomb.

This is a really funny family movie! There's plenty of funny, touching moments in it and it's very colourful, adventurous stuff. The basic storyline is that Howard Langston (Arnie) has forgotten his son's christmas present of a Turbo Man action figure, but the shops have all sold out! It's christmas eve and Howard has only 24 hours left! What Howard doesn't bargain for is the fact that psycho sad Mario (Sinbad) has got to get one for his son too! Throughout most of the movie there's basically Arnie and Sinbad nearly killing eachother to get their mitts on this Turbo Man doll and trying to beat eachother to it no matter what it takes! There's some very funny moments throughout the movie and some surprises too! Rent this lovely film out and sit back and get festive! Thumbs up!
