  • Bad Santa

    Bad Santa 2003

    ★★★★ Watched 18 May, 2015 2

    Watching Sling Blade reminded me I never saw Bad Santa.

    I checked it out on Netflix. It's terrific.

    VERY funny.

    This is my kind of comedy, SUPER dark stuff. It's all down to Billy Bob's performance.

    I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

    ★★★½ Added 11

    8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
    23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"

    There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.

    Yub Yub.
