Jingle All the Way (1996)

Arnie plays Howard Langston, a neglectful workaholic father who will do anything to make his spoiled son Jamie happy, so he decides to get him the hottest action figure on the market, a Turbo Man for Christmas. So Howard goes on a search through town to find the action figure, but since it's days before Christmas, the stores are packed and running out of stock. Along the way Howard competes with a rival searcher, a deranged postal worker named Myron, as well as con-artist Santas, the cops and every parent in town who's dying to get their hands on the doll. Not only that but his son is wondering why his father is never around, and his next door neighbor tries to hit on his wife. Pretty funny but silly at times. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sinbad, Phil Hartman, Rita Wilson, Robert Conrad, Martin Mull, James Belushi, Harvey Korman, Jake Lloyd 6/10
