This is fun throughout, suprisingliy violent at times but still fun and does make fun of the most have gift syndrome. Of course it has Arnold Schwarzenegger in it which kinds of adds to its charm.
The Snow Report
There is occassional bits of snow throughout the movie though much of it is fake.
While Santa does appear in the movie he is largely usurped by TurboMan, another fictional character.
Baubles, Lights and Tinsel
Decorations are littered throughout the shops, visted by Howard and the easily disturbed may be shocked at the rough handling of decorations at times.
Will It Make Me Cry?
It's not going to make you cry.
Nothing to say here, its appropriately festive.
It is all about Arnold Schwarzenegger who one presumes the entire movie was designed around. To be honest it does add to the fun significantly.
The Santa fight is great with a beautiful homage to James Bond and Indidana Jones included in the sequence and the end is cool.
