Bad Santa

Bad Santa (2/5/05) Netflix (2003 ***) Directed by Terry Zwigoff, starring Billy Bob Thornton, with Bernie Mac and John Ritter. What’s not to like about an alcoholic safe-cracking Santa Claus? Well, it took me a long time to warm up to this movie. Roger Ebert recommended it and it was directed by Zwigoff, who directed Crumb and Ghost World, both of which I enjoyed. It wasn’t a great movie, but I will say this: I was certainly far more interested in the characters by the end than I was at the beginning.
