As a drunken miserable safecracker, Billy Bob Thornton and his diminutive partner - the hilarious Tony Cox - pose as a department store Santa and his elf, in order to rob the store on Christmas Eve. Good cheer finds them inadvertently by way of a lonely 8 year old (the charmingly chubby Brett Kelly), his sandwich-making machine of a grandma (Cloris Leachman), and even a friendly female bartender with a fetish for doin' the nasty with Santa...baby. (Bernie Mac is great as a blackmailing metrosexual of a store detective.) An annual must-see! Available at Amazon.com.
