"Jingle All The Way" marked the end of two distinct cinematic eras: Arnold Schwarzenegger's string of comedies and Sinbad's film career. But was it really hot garbage, or does this quirky Christmas satire have some lasting laughs to offer? Big D needed two viewings to decide.

This movie led to a lot of surprisingly spirited Shat The Movies debates, including:

  • Should parents attend their children's sporting events?
  • Was "Jingle All The Way" secretly an homage to "Raiders of The Lost Ark"?
  • Is this movie pro-divorce?
  • Why does everyone hate Booster?
  • Would "Jingle All The Way" be better with Tim Allen and Joe Pesci?

Gene, Roger, and Big D also discuss deja vu, blackouts, sleeping with married women, the '80s trend of must-have toys, the proper order of martial arts belts, and how Gene scammed Service Merchandise out of business.

Big D points out why you shouldn't film a Christmas movie in the spring, and Roger gives a little history lesson on how George Lucas could have avoided a "Star Wars" disaster by just watching Jake Lloyd's performance in "Jingle All The Way."
