McDonald at the Movies: Bad Santa

Wed, Dec 5 / 7 pm
Directed by Terry Zwigoff
2003, USA, 91 min

Once a month comedian and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, Kevin McDonald will present a film from handpicked the archives of comic history.

Introduced by Kevin McDonald.

In this savage take on Christmas, Billy Bob Thornton is Willie T. Stokes, a burned-out, hard-drinking safecracker who is annually roused from sleeping one off in that most wonderful time of the year by his partner, Marcus (Tony Cox). Willie is a department store Santa, and Marcus plays his elf. As he does so, Marcus also cases the store so that he and Willie can break in and relieve it of valuable merchandise. The whole ragged, hilarious package is what makes Bad Santa such a treat.

Reviews

Extremely funny thanks to Terry Zwigoff's (Ghost World, Crumb) way with raw irreverence and Thornton's perfectly pitched, ready-for-anything performance.
