25 Days of Christmas Movies Day 5: Hey Santa! Want me to fix you a sandwich?


LAST FILM WATCHED: Bad Santa
TO WATCH OR NOT TO WATCH: If you're feeling like a Scrooge this year this is definitely the film for you to watch. It is crass, crude and totally inappropriate... but chock full of guilty laughs and bitter attitudes about the holidays. The film is absolutely not family friendly in any way, but I thought it was pretty funny and full of great performances. The film worked for me because of the weird little kid who forms a bond with Billy Bob Thornton's mall Santa thief. The film is definitely not for everyone, but if you're in just the right mood it hits the spot (and let me clarify I saw a t.v. edit, and even that was still pretty bad haha)
EMILY RATING: 8/10
NEXT FILM ON THE LIST: Frosty the Snowman.

Maybe I should sit this one out, although the negative Christmas vibe has me intrigued.

Yeah, I don't think this one is for me. :) But it sounds interesting!

I have to admit, though I think BBT is a great actor, I've never really been tempted by this movie.
