Theater Thursday

Keeping with out Christmas Theme, this week's Theater Thursday featured movie is none other than: Arnold Schwarzenegger's holiday blockbuster hit Jingle All The Way. (And yes, every time I start talking about this movie, I say it with all that info)
Jingle All The Way came out in 1996. I remember seeing it in the theater twice that Christmas season. The first time we were on our family vacation in none other than Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. If you've never seen the movie here's a brief summary...
Howard (Arnold), is a non stop, on the go businessman. The day before Christmas he realizes that he never got his son the only thing he's asked for, for Christmas. A turbo man doll. The problem? Turbo man dolls are high in demand, have sold out and can't be found. In the search for a turbo man doll Howard runs into a fellow dad on the search for the doll, a postal worker named Myron (Sinbad). During their quest they battle it out, covering the city for the sparse item. Anything and everything happens to each of them. 
However, while Howard is away from his home. His next door neighbor and single dad Ted (Phil Hartman) decides to seize the opportunity to make a play for Howard's wife Liz (Rita Wilson). He shows up to bake cookies, string lights and steel Howards' christmas thunder. 
If you've never seen Jingle All the Way I highly suggest you do, it's a hilarious tale of how people will do anything and everything for those hard to find Christmas items. 

Only 14 more days till Christmas!!!
