Arnie film voted biggest Christmas turkey18/12/2006 - 10:10:02
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s festive film Jingle All The Way has been voted the biggest Christmas turkey.
The laugh-free comedy featured Arnie desperately trying to get his hands on the latest must-have toy for his young son.
It topped a poll of 3,000 film fans by www.pearlanddean.com.
Sixties B-movie Santa Conquers The Martians came second – it told the surreal story of Father Christmas being kidnapped and carted off to meet kids on Mars.
Comic actor Tim Allen has two films in the top 10 – Christmas With The Kranks and The Santa Clause.
There were also entries for Home Alone, starring Macaulay Culkin, slushy Richard Attenborough film Miracle On 34th Street, Dudley Moore dud Santa Claus: The Movie and Billy Bob Thornton’s bad taste comedy Bad Santa.
Kathryn Jacobs of Pearl & Dean said: “Everybody loves a good family film at Christmas but they can't all be classics like It’s A Wonderful Life. We think Arnie is a very worthy winner.”
