1.0 out of 5 stars Not funny at all, just sadly depraved, July 27, 2004
This review is from: Badder Santa (Unrated Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
I'm a liberal guy. I like movies that are different, but this takes the cake for utter depravity. I just saw the uncut version Bad Santa, and it was one of the worst ever. Ebert, my favorite movie critic gave it high marks, which really dismays me because I don't know what he must of been thinking. How can you mix anal sex with a Christmas story? Call me uptight, but it just doesn't fit. The movie was so dark, the story so unlikely, and so hoaky--all at the same time--that it was just down right awful, if not just plain confusing. Now I'm not a Christian fundamentalist, and I'm not even a Christian, but I can fully understand why this movie would serve as a perfect example for those who are up in arms about Hollywood. Ugh! If anyone has some insight as to why this movie deserved the high marks that it got, please let me know. NO flames, just please explain, thank you. My guess is that people are cutting this movie lots of slack because it's a Cohen Bros. movie. If they hadn't known this from the start, would they have still liked the movie as much? Hard to tell. Bottom line for me is that this movie was one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
