However, Marcus must once again put up with Willie's heavy drinking and a series of incidents that constantly shoot themselves in the foot. Watching Billy Bob's character 'grow-up'during the film is surprisingly heartwarming. The thing that bothers me is that some people criticize the film cause it has too bad language. Hilarious from start to finish, this movie covers the story of an alcoholic safe cracker who works as a shopping mall Santa to steal money from the mall on Christmas eve. This year, they hit a mall in suburban Phoenix, Arizona. He drinks heavily and constantly embarrasses himself publicly. In my opinion the used language is important part of the film.

He drinks heavily and constantly embarrasses himself publicly. For a broken man,he does the best he can once he allows himself to 'give-a-damm'. Billy Bob and his sensational young co star Brett Kelly create characters never seen before on the screen and as a consequence we cling on to their every nuance, incapable to predict what could happen next. It has hilarious humour and its almost an unique growth story of a man that has grown tired of his miserable life and finds something worth fighting for. This year, they hit a mall in suburban Phoenix, Arizona.
As with all good comedies, the material is inspired but it's the delivery that makes it unforgettable. Yet I think the brilliant aspect about Bad Santa is it never takes itself a bit too seriously. And is is filled with enough 4-letter words to be its own zone of bad taste. But then come Christmas Eve, he and his pint-sized helper dwarf Marcus stage elaborate robberies and take their department stores for everything they got.

Stokes is a convicted con man who's led a miserable life. Still addicted to alcohol and at the end of his tether, Soke will reluctantly accept his former sidekick Marcus' truce and his daring plan for another Yuletide caper--this time targeting a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. In a sense he's a modern day pirate without a shave, though with a yearly plan to rob a large store in a given mall he's given a job at with his co-patriot Marcus Tony Cox, whom you may recall from uproarious bit parts in Friday and Me, Myself, and Irene. I think in the real life its quite the opposite. Even in the denouement, when we are sort of assured things will turn out alright; it's like a denouement on a South Park episode.
