Bad Santa

Billy Bob Thornton is Willie T. Stokes, a washed-up, wise-cracking department store Santa who is actually a safecracker that makes one big score every year—on Christmas Eve. As shoppers head home from the mall, this Santa and his ingenious elf crack the store safe and make off with their own holiday stash. Santa and his Elf find their annual heist endangered by a pesky store manager, a savvy mall detective, a sexy Santa fan and an innocent but beleaguered eight-year-old misfit who decides to believe that Willie—as intoxicated, acid-tongued and felonious as he seems to be—is the real Santa he’s been seeking.
