bad santa excellent
2 December 2005 | by gouz9See all my reviews

hey the film is great ,billy bob thornton is great ,i really laughed during all the movie projection. maybe the humor is a bit too much for some people but if you liked al bundy in married with children and those kind of stuff you are going to love it.I think some people went to see this movie expecting to see some nice Christmas movie for the family and they were wrong , it's surely not the Christmas movie to go and see with your family but for people that have no limits in humor they will adore it ,i would put an 8 but since most people criticized it so badly and vote so bad for it i wanted to help the bad santa get some more points .
