Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Bad Santa is an odd film. Maybe seeing it 16 years after it’s release has had a negative effective (this is often a thing for sure) but for the most part I wasn’t blown away by the film, certainly seeing as how well regarded it is. That’s not to say it doesn’t have it’s moments – it does for sure and at times can be quite funny- but the film, in a post #metoo world, is quite an awkward and uncomfortable watch and for sure isn’t helped by the Weinstein name being attached! So maybe a film very much of its time?
Best Bit: Thornton is enjoying himself
