Crude, lewd, hilarious...and touching!

"I'm an eating, drinking, shitting, fucking Santy Claus." Are you sick and tired of the recent glut of strictly by-the-numbers, saccharine-coated Christmas movies? If so, then praise the skies for Terry Zwigoff's Bad Santa; a no-holds-barred misanthropic black comedy that casually takes every cherished cliché of Christmas movies, tears them to shreds and takes a piss on the remains. Crude, vulgar... read more

Bad Movie

Bad Santa? More like "Bad Movie." However, Billy Bob Thorton turns in a breakout performance playing the role he knows best, himself. A degenerate drunk thief playing father figure to an innocent kid is very fitting for the holiday season. Watch Thorton spread the joy of Christmas as Santa Claus and follow along not knowing whether to laugh or cringe.
View all Bad Santa reviews
It is the height of the festive holiday season and merry shoppers have begun their yearly pilgrimages to their local malls. Among the drove is a pair of con men, on a decadent road trip as Santa and his elf. Rather than spreading good cheer, the duo's motive is to rob each establishment, a strategy that becomes complicated when they encounter a precocious 8-year old that teaches them the true meaning of Christmas.

"Format: DVD Viewing: 2nd Thoughts: The wife and I were in the mood for some holiday fair over Thanksgiving weekend and it just so happens I picked this up at a Good Will for 2 bucks. I think Bad Santa is the role Billy Bob Thornton was born to play, so much so that we would later see this character turn up again in the Amazon series Goliath. The movie is so delightfully wicked and dares to answer the question, "what if Leaving Las Vegas was a dark comedy with a Christmas setting?" Seeing it for "

"22.12. 2019 "Bad Santa" is an unconventional christmas film, although the director who made this film probably wasn't quite sure what he really wanted to say with it. The main character is a crook who works as a mall santa and he also steals stuff with his midget friend. The main joke is obviously the fact that the mall santa is crude and obnoxious, which isn't that entertaining, especially since some of the jokes are repeated a little bit too many times. Sometimes the film feels like it's actu"
