I "Jingle all the way," Christmas flick already in stores by Barney Basin PVG Reviewer The bats haven't even returned to their post Halloween caves and already the studios are releasing their Christmas choice collections. "Jingle all the way" appears to be the front runner. This time it's Arnold Schwarzenegger as the workaholic father trying to keep his family together by buying his son the most requested toy of the year. In his quest he is hindered by a stressed-out mailman, played by Sinbad, a policeman played by Robert Conrad and a Santa, who is no gentleman, played by James Belushi. Naturally in a story like this there is always "Murphy's law" to contend with, because every- thing that can go wrong does. Through all this he is able to finally fulfill his promise to his son and redeem family values for Christmas. One of the most enjoyable characterizations in this flick is Phil Hartman as the single parent neighbor with eyes on Arnold's screen wife, Rita Wilson. Almost from the begin- ning you realize that his helpful concerned neighbor act is just that, an act. Except for the final action sequence, the film is all very predictable, but then so is Christmas, except when your trytrig to figure out what's in a fruitcake. The scenes of adults fighting in the toy stores appeared a little farfetched until you realized that is just what happened in some places last year with the "Tickle-Me Elmo" doll. Unfortunately, it doesn't say much about the true spirit of Christmas. Although not headed for Christmas classicdom this is a fun harmless piece of film and good way to start off the holiday viewing festival frenzy. f,aag_rxtaar t. l:ht% Imrmm G. Gro+,m Polm .BI 3.
