This movie was vulgar, dirty, and ugly. Oh, and it was hilarious too. I laughed almost continuously throughout. I thought every character pulled his weight, even the kid who played Thurman Merman. This is easily Thornton's best performance since Sling Blade. John Ritter also provides a great turn as the uptight manager, a great note to end a career early. It's unfortunate that he passed away because he really got to showcase his potential as a comedic actor, this was far funnier than he ever got to be on television.

this movie was hilarious, the only reason i gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because some of the vulgarity was a bit too much. overall the movie was great and i recommend it.

Laugh out loud comedy. Not for for children.

Comedy is difficult to do on the big screen. Most comedy movies are just not funny. This however is a gut buster. Could not stop laughing. The dialouge is clever and comic, and marvelously delivered in beliveable and comedic preformances. Great writing, great acting and great direction the three elements that make a great picture are all present here.

In a different type of Christmas spirit. Billy Bob Thorton is great as a self-loathing Santa and then screwing every woman he meets while drinking his liver to oblivion. John Ritter, RIP, deserves his props for playing a wonderfully subdued character of a tight-ass businessman. This movie does not pull any punches, it stabs everybody. Enjoy, and Happy Christmas to All!

I wasn't overjoyed to see this movie at first, but a friend talked me into to going and I am glad I did, I couldn't stop laughing. I totally agree that this film is not for everyone. It is intended for those who can look at things, even serious things, humorously. The movie has some vulgar moments but truth be told most things do. Just please take some advice and keep in mind it is a movie, meant to make a person laugh and not think about reality. I personally enjoyed it and will be purchasing it when it comes out tomorrow 06/22/04.

You know how Christmas is normally filled with joy and cheer? NOT ANYMORE. This dark comedy will make you howl with laughter and make you laugh so hard and often, your stomach will hurt after the credits roll. This is definitely one of those movies that should not be viewed by kids. There is scene after scene after scene of vulgar and comedic outrageousness that you can't help but love it. This movie is so outrageous that I literally rolled on the floor in the movie theater. I didn't care who was looking. After viewing this movie, you then will agree that not much matches the humor of a drunk con-artist in a Santa Claus outfit.

This movie is the Director's Cut and it is horrible! There were so many scenes that were eliminated! There is no Advent Calendar with Chocolates. There is no longer the scene where John Ritter tries to fire them and they tell him he can't because of the Elf being black and a midget. Also eliminated is the scene where he eats the chocolates and then "fixes" the box later. Now I have to go back and order the unedited version.

OMG, this is a classic. This is the movie where I really discovered BBT. His portrail of Santa is extreme and ever so clever. I loved it. John Ritter was fantastic. The kid was a hoot. Tony and Bernie were the best. This has become part of our family Christmas movie roster, slid in between Charlie Brown, The Grinch, and The Christmas Story. The language and content is not for kids or the faint of heart, but that is the beauty of it all. It is perfectly placed and the timing was perfect. I laugh out loud every time. My copy is well worn!

What can I say about the language in this film? As entertainment the F word is used so often it flys in the face of all sensibility. The character is so improbable and unlikeable that my hat goes of to Mr Thornton. Dont buy this movie..unless your totally bored..

THIS MOVIE IS HORRIBLE! EVERY OTHER WORD IS FU*K. AND QUITE SERIOUSLY, I DID NOT SEE THE HUMOR. BILLY BOB...I THINK IT'S TIME YOU GAVE UP ACTING AND GOT A SECURITY GIG WITH GARY COLEMAN.
