Bad Santa is the 2003 raunchy holiday comedy from celebrated director Terry Zwigoff (Ghost World, Art School Confidential, Crumb). Willie (Billy Bob Thorton, Sling Blade, The Bad News Bears, Armageddon, The Man Who Wasn't There) is a boozing, whoring, slovenly misanthrope safe cracker who makes his living, along with his little person companion Marcus (Tony Cox) putting on a department store Santa and Elf act every Christmas so they can loot the store's vault after hours for the big score. Well, it's the most wonderful time of the year again, and this time, their exploits take them to Arizona, where everything seems to be going as usual at first. However, they are receiving unwanted attention and flack from, at first, their conservative boss Chipeska (John Ritter) and then security head Gin (Bernie Mac), who is suspicious of their intentions. Couple this with an unlikely friendship between Willie and an incredibly awkward portly youth named Herman Merman and comedy gold ensues!
