Terry Zwigoff’s foul-mouthed dark comedy is the perfect film for all the Scrooges out there who have had enough consumerist holiday cheer! A miserable conman and his partner pose as Santa and his Little Helper to rob department stores on Christmas Eve. But they run into problems when the conman befriends a troubled kid. Twisted, hilarious, and audacious with comically disturbed performances from Billy Bob Thornton and Tony Cox, Bad Santa is the acerbic antidote for Christmas cynics all over.
