Best of all is Lauren Graham, who creates the emotional heart of a picture determined not to have one.

This film is a breath of fresh air at a time when movies try far too hard to keep everyone unruffled.

Tony Cox as a hilarious, pint-sized guttermouth is the main attraction of this movie, which is somewhat more depressing than the trailers would have you believe.
| Original Score: 6.5/10

When will people tire of these one-note comedies? If you've seen the poster, there's really no need to actually sit through the movie.

This extravagantly foul, outlandishly profane, howlingly funny comedy about a thieving, hard-drinking, child-loathing department store Santa is a shock to the yuletide system.

You don't have to be a drunken department store Santa to see how blurry this storyline is, but it couldn't hurt.

Uma lição de crescimento e otimismo que todas as crianças deveriam receber. Isto é, caso pudessem assistir a Bad Santa - algo que elas definitivamente não devem fazer.

The Christmas movie your parents warned you about -- because they wanted it all for themselves.

One of the most wonderful pieces of anarchy to come out of Hollywood in years; it has the jittery feel of a movie that's ahead of it's time.

Bad Santa is fine holiday fare--if by holiday you mean a day for a mean-spirited Santa to take stuff from other people, cuss up a storm and drink 'til he pukes.

...if the idea of a drunken Santa Claus having rough anal sex with an obese prostitute doesn?t disturb you, then the sight of it will.

In its best moments, the movie taps into a very real sadness that most people try to gift-wrap away.
