Summary

Seasonal comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Young Jamie Langston wants a "Turbo Man" toy for Christmas, but his father Howard is too wrapped up in work to remember his son's request. Until Christmas Eve, that is, when Howard's furious wife sends him on a desperate quest to bring home the last Turbo Man in Minneapolis - whatever it takes.

Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

In this family comedy, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays the overworked businessman who promises to buy the year's hottest toy - Turbo Man - for his neglected son. Alas, the doll sold out months previously, thus sparking a frantic search that sees Arnie crossing swords with an obsessed postman (Sinbad) and a crooked Santa (James Belushi). Schwarzenegger acquits himself reasonably well in the slapstick action sequences - for once he is not indestructible - but he's a tad embarrassing during the cuddlier moments. Brian Levant's direction, meanwhile, could do with a harder edge.
