Nothing signals the Christmas season like reindeer, snowfall, Christmas trees, presents, and of course the movie Bad Santa. I mean seriously, what is more heart warming than the story of an alcoholic Santa and his real-life midget companion working shopping malls during the Christmas season just to rob them blind. As if that is not enough, throw in a fat kid, incoherent grandmother, and a slutty bartender, and you have what is potentially the greatest Christmas story ever told, which has become a holiday classic at my house.
So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that director Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) has signed on to direct Bad Santa 2, slated for a 2013 release. The details are few at this point, however it is confirmed that Billy Bob Thornton will return in his role as drunken Santa. Hopefully Pink will strive to surpass it’s foul-mouthed predecessor which racked up 300 total swear words, which included dropping the F* bomb 159 times!
Stayed tuned to the EB for future info, but for now enjoy this short clip below from the original Bad Santa, which was possibly the funniest scene in the movie and sure to give you a laugh. Nothing like seeing a fat kid and a midget getting punched in the nuts. You’ve been wishing the Santa at your local mall was this cool…
