Crass, rude, and sexual black comedy involving criminals at Christmas time. This is one non-mainstream structured film that managed to be a mainstream hit. It's not because of the crassness, either. The unapologetic nature, mixed with some odd holiday sentimentality and the lack of a predictable plot and characters, are the real strengths here. It offers something new in it's narrative and comedy. I grew a fond respect for it over repeated viewings.

Billy Bob Thornton at his funniest. This movie is creative and hilarious. This movies is as vulgar as a comedy gets while still carrying quite a good story. This is a Christmas must for me and my wife. My son will have to stick to the more traditional until hes older. Funniest Christmas movie ever.

Billy Bob Thornton plays a foul-mouthed drunken safe cracker who once a year gets a job as a department store Santa in order to rob the place. When I watched this I was thinking I'd be getting a deconstruction of seasonal sentimentality and a welcome antidote to the usual saccharine drenched mush that's the hallmark of the average Christmas movie. What I got was a guy in a Santa suit saying fuck. Over and over again. True, his first tirade against the dim-witted fat kid is funny but once you've seen that you've seen the whole thing, and inevitably it resorts to the usual growing as a person bullshit by the end. I'm as big a fan as politically incorrect humour as the next person, but this is just plain unfunny. Stick to Scrooged.

A rare film that somehow manages to be nasty and mean, while, at the same time, revealing its heart at the end. Bernie Mac is uproariously hilarious as the security officer tracking the fittingly sleazy Thorton and his diminuitive sidekick.
