Santa and his little helper are confidence men casing a mall all holiday season and robbing it blind Christmas Eve. The elf “shops” the stores while Santa cracks the mall safe. Following them through one last season of perverse holiday cheer you hear the ‘f’ word more frequently than in Scarface. We meet a woman bartender who has always had a thing for Santas, and a little boy who evokes genuine emotional change in Santa.

One comment

  • For sure not the best comedy I’ve seen, but still funny enough. Billy Bob Thornton made a good performance as “Bad Santa”, and I also liked the character of Tony Cox. “Bad Santa” is a very crude film, with lots of swearing, sex and alcohol… the exact opposite what we expect from Santa. It’s a surprisingly funny alternative Christmas film.
