Movie Review: Bad Santa (2003)


In 2019 I found some old Word documents with movie reviews I wrote back before I had a blog. I’m posting each review backdated to the day I wrote it.

Title: Bad Santa
Release Date: November 26, 2003
Director: Terry Zwigoff
Production Company:  Dimension Films | Tryptich Pictures
Summary/Review:

A rude, crude, crass movie, another one I was forced to see by Lisa Lynn.  Turns out that Susan & I ended up liking this movie more than Lisa.  I don’t know what makes this movie transcend a simple exercise in bad taste.  Maybe because there’s almost no sentiment at all?  Maybe because Billy Bob Thornton is a convincing drunk and the kid is anything but cute?  I don’t know but this was a funny and also depressing movie.
