Definitely not one for the young film fans out there! Bad Santa might in fact be less Christmassy than Gremlins but here we go anyway! Two bad-mouthed con men disguised themselves as Santa and his helper as a front to rob the mall on Christmas Eve. The only issue is Willie, the guy who is playing Santa, is a foul-mouthed, alcoholic, sex addict who happens to hate kids.
He is forced to talk to an overweight kid who becomes a regular. The Kid is a target for bullies and manages to arouse some sympathy from Willie. Attempting for give The Kid some advice, Willie manages to develop some vague Christmas spirit along the way – awwww! A Christmas miracle!
Swearing, sex, booze and just a couple of Santa hats; this black comedy is perfect for anyone who is not feeling in a particularly festive mood. though if the Christmas spirit manages to melt even Willie’s frost heart, it might melt even the most bah!humbug! of hearts too.
