Hollywood has cranked out hundreds of Christmas movies, but only a handful truly get to become holiday classics. Think of films like "A Christmas Story" or "Home Alone," which resonate with audiences and can be watched each and every year when the holidays roll around. Most of these movies have a very similar theme of holiday cheer, family love, togetherness and all the things you traditionally associate with the holidays. "Bad Santa" does not walk that path. In fact, it lets the reindeer stomp all over that path.
"Bad Santa" is the perfect Christmas movie for people who don't take Christmas seriously and who can appreciate an offensive comedy that avoids every holiday cliche and hits you with so many things you never expected. That's why it's become so beloved! It's a Christmas movie for everyone who wants something a little less sweet. And Billy Bob Thornton just nails the role of a perfectly scuzzy, terrible man who has no business being within 20 feet of Christmas cheer or goodwill.
If you don't mind some foul language, low-brow humor and just a dash of legit holiday cheer, you have to love "Bad Santa." Now let's find out how much you know about it!
