This was John Ritter's last film appearance before his death on September 11, The Coen brothers are credited as executive producers. The film was released in the United States on November 21,
If you thought the original movie was bad, you might want to give the sequel a miss Film bosses have dropped the first trailer ahead of its release this autumn and it is seriously X-rated! Billy Bob Thornton and Christina Hendricks appear in some of the most shocking scenes to hit cinemas to date as their characters enjoy a steamy romp in an alleyway.
Sue is gone and he has just lost his job as a valet. And again, he is getting wasted and his only friend left is Thurman who is grown up by now. A silver lining is his former partner Marcus who is up to another heist.
In Match Cuts, we examine every available version of a film, and decide once and for all which is the one, definitive cut worth watching. In Phoenix for the holiday season, Willie finds his dark worldview lightening thanks to a Santa-fetishizing bartender Lauren Graham and an irrepressible Kid Brett Kelly who thinks Willie is really Santa Claus and offers him a place to hide out from the cops. But even if Willie finally gets into the Christmas spirit, he still has to contend with an increasingly annoyed Marcus and a suspicious head of mall security Bernie Mac.
Hendricks may not have seen Bad Santa when it came out inbut she quickly learned what this film was going to entail. Screen Rant sat down with the Mad Men star to talk about preparing for her role as Diane, joining the Bad Santa family, and her first day on set. You saw Bad Santa after you had already gotten the role for Diane, correct?
She brings energy, and something approaching real humor, to her ultra-sleazy personality and malicious manipulations of Willie. For the record, the plot involves a Christmastime plan by the Sokes, abetted by Marcus, to rob a dubious charity, headed by wealthy sexpot Diane Christina Hendrickswho, remarkably, develops the hots for stumblebum Willie. Meanwhile, Marcus puts the moves on libidinous, zaftig security guard Gina Jenny Zigrino.
I mean honestly, what is a Christmas movie without a sex-obsessed alcoholic shopping mall Santa who specialises in both safe-cracking and foul language, accompanied by a violent and aggressive little helper who is the mastermind of the operation, a woman who is overwhelmingly sexually attracted to Santas, an awkward but wide-eyed kid who has been left largely unsupervised since his father went to prison for a white collar crime, all being tracked by a corrupt and heavily manicured head of mall security who likes to dress like a cowboy? Sounds like Christmas to me…. First things first, Bad Santa is one of those films that has several different versions of it floating around and as is usual in such cases the lesser version is the one that is most widely available.
