What makes a Santa bad? When he’s a miserable alcoholic who curses non-stop, pisses himself whilst at work, has a penchant for plus-size ladies and robs department stores every Christmas with his black dwarf accomplice.
What Tierna thinks: “I really enjoyed this one. The kid actor was absolutely hilarious and in my opinion, he made the film that extra bit funny. “Want me to fix you some sandwiches?!” Bad Santa was a horrible individual, yet slightly endearing towards the end. Great film, made me laugh and although I’m making a habit of this I’ll give it an eight out of ten.”
What Tom thinks: “Always good to get into the Christmas spirit… in September! Bad Santa is my kind of Xmas film, good dark humour and enough heart without being schmaltzy. The recent ‘Bad Teacher’ showed just how hard it can be to get this kind of comedy right and Billy-Bob Thornton is perfect in the lead role. It’s always hard to rate these films, its not a classic film per se but is a very entertaining film. Hmm, I’ll give it an eight out of ten.”
