Each year there is always the “BIG TOY.” In the late 80s and early 90s it was Cabbage Patch Kids. In the late 90’s it was Tickle Me Elmo. And in the fictional world of 1998’s Jingle All The Way, it was TURBOMAN! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad are after that ever so special Turboman doll in this Christmas classic that is also a satire on commercialism. Also starring Phil Hartman was the super creepo neighbor, who in our opinion steals the entire movie. Just goes to show, even in a smaller role in a over the top silly holiday movie Phil Hartman was always on his game. Now many will argue that this isn’t a “B Movie,” but not only does it share many qualities of a typical B Movie, it also includes a 20 min scene where a child doesn’t recognize his own father by his face, let alone he is probably the only person in Minnesota with an Austrian accent…I think that makes it a contender. It’s Turbo Time!
Next week we stay in holiday mode with the 1998 Michael Keaton vehicle, Jack Frost. Not to be confused with the 1997 horror film, this movie has an even more unbelievable and crazy ass plot. Michael Keaton is musician Jack Frost who dies in a car accident, one year later he returns magically as a snow man. SnowDad is better than No Dad!
