'Jingle All The Way' Is The Most Underrated Christmas Movie

Everyone loves to throw around titles like Christmas Vacation and It's a Wonderful Life when the conversation of Christmas movies is brought up. But for some reason, people always tend to neglect Jingle All the Way.

Which is a shame, because it just might be the greatest Christmas movie of our generation. Bear with me and see why Jingle All the Way is the most underrated Christmas movie.

Firstly, Sinbad was never funnier than when he starred in *Jingle All The Way*.

Sindbad used to be one of the most popular comedians on the planet. He had a slew of hits in the late '80s and '90s that include classics like Coneheads and Houseguest.

Sinbad's portrayal of the manic Myron Larabee never gets old.

There are so many incredibly quotable one-liners, it's insane.

It's literally impossible to watch Jingle All the Way without saying "You're my number one customer!" in an Arnold Schwarzenegger voice. It seriously can't be done.

Go ahead and see for yourself.

*Jingle All The Way* isn't afraid to call out the consumerism of Christmas.

Far too often we get caught up in the hustle and bustle and lose sight of the meaning of Christmas.

At least that's what the film appears to be communicating as you watch hordes of parents trample one another.

Without a doubt, it's one of the best comedic performances of Arnold Schwarzenegger's career.

I think it's unfair that Arnold gets pigeonholed as strictly an action hero. If you look at his resume, some of the best films of his career are comedies.

If you're a fan of Arnold in Kindergarten Cop, you'll love him in Jingle All the Way.

It's also one of the last performances of the late great Phil Hartman.

Jingle All the Way is the second last film that Phil Hartman ever appeared in. His character Ted is the stereotypical overbearing neighbor we all love to hate.

Like Lionel Hutz, he's a sleazy snake in the grass. Like Troy McClure, he's an arrogant ass.

The film claps back at toxic masculinity and would-be creeps.

Did I mention that Ted is a sleazebag? Because he is. If you pay attention, the movie is actually bursting with some pretty obvious sexual innuendo.

Watching him get hit upside the head with a thermos full of eggnog will fill you with Christmas feminist cheer!

Finally, the moral behind *Jingle All The Way* hits hard.

At the beginning of the movie, Howard (Arnold) thinks that he needs to buy Jamie's affection with toys.

In the end, Howard's made to realize that Turbo Man isn't his son's hero — he is! That what Jamie really wants for Christmas is his father to notice him.
