In this special holiday episode, we sit on the lap of the 2003 dark comedy Bad Santa, which stars Billy Bob Thornton as an embittered veteran con artist who spends his Christmases burglarize shopping malls with his short-of-stature business partner, played by Tony Cox, while in the guise of a department store Santa Claus and his helper elf. We’ll see just what makes this modern holiday classic a hilarious annual must-watch while discussing how it fits into the high-quality filmography of its director, critically acclaimed independent filmmaker Terry Zwigoff.
