| Despite its problems, I thought it was funny
'Jingle All The Way' is a Christmas story about merchandising and family. A lot of people seemed to really hate this movie, but I did not think it was all that bad. Sure, some of the action and the story was not the best, but I thought it did provoke a lot of laughter. The scenes with Arnie at the warehouse filled with Santas and elves was funny, and it had a good ending with the father becoming the hero after all. It does represent the bad of the holiday season with all the merchandising and the over-emphasis on that one particular toy that kids must get for Christmas, and if they do not receive it, then they are outcasts. Despite its problems, I did find it a funny and worthwhile film.

Goofs

During the beginning of the movie, Howard misses his Jamie's karate class and promises to buy him the Turbo Man doll for Christmas. However when talking with his wife, she mentions the toy that he forgot to buy for Christmas. So it turns out he forgot to buy the toy for Jamie after promising him that he will buy the toy.


Crazy Credits

After the end credits, there is a brief heartwarming family scene, that ends with a question from Liz. She asks Howard what he got her for Christmas.


Alternate Versions

The Extended Edition (found in Family Fun Edition),ABC Network TV and ABC Family version includes additional scenes not included in the theatrical and home video release:

  • Instead of Howard going right after the woman in the car, he first sees another woman (Yeardley Smith) with a matching fur coat. He sees a TurboMan package in her bag and offers her money. She takes it and walks away. He takes it out and discovers that it is TurboMan's sidekick, Booster. He then runs after the woman in the car.
  • In the following scene of Howard traveling to different toy stores looking for TurboMan, the 'Jingle all the Way' song is replaced by "The Christmas Song".
  • A scene inside Howard's GMC when they're driving to Santa's warehouse where it shows Howard saying his "We've yet to see a sign of that supposed Turbo Man doll" sentence. The mall Santa doesn't sing his "Little Boy Who Santa Claus Forgot" song in the car.
  • Additional dialogue in the warehouse, as well as the Mall Santa and all the other Santas singing a chorus of "Little Boy Who Santa Claus Forgot".
  • The rock version of "Jingle all the way" plays as Howard fights the warehouse Santas
  • Additional dialogue between Howard and the cops at the warehouse.
  • A scene with Howard riding home in a tow truck after his car had been stripped where he's rehearsing how he was going to explain what happened to him to his wife.
  • An alternate ending: instead of the ending at the parade, the film fades back to Howard's house. He turns on the lights on his tree and everybody is happy. Liz says "It was so nice that you went to all that to get him that present.... so what did you get me?" It ends with a closeup of Howard looking horrified. This scene originally played following the credits (theatrical and home video versions).
  • An extra scene of Myron Larabee describing the Johnny 7 O.M.A gun to Howard.
  • The Mall Santa's line of "That's not my bag" was deleted from television because of its sexual innuendo; Myron's line of "a woman who slept with everybody at the post office but me" was changed to "a woman, you don't even know where she lives any more!"
