Bad Santa

Friday, December 18 - Saturday, December 19, 2009

Billy Bob Thornton — at his misanthropic best — stars as a two-bit hood masquerading as a mall santa in Terry Zwigoff’s (Crumb, Ghost World) big bah-humbug to the pageantry and commercialism of the Christmas season. “Hilarious in its foul-mouthed malice and disenchantment with all things wholesome and familial; few films have been as funny about greed, lust, incontinence, midgets or kicks to the balls… Wonderfully tasteless, gloriously non-PC, admirably bilious.” – Time Out (London)
