How many times do you hear "the f-word" in most holiday classics? Maybe once? Ten times? Oh, right - it's almost always ZERO TIMES. So thank the effing heavens that BAD SANTA came around and gave us a holiday classic for the a**holes in us all.

Billy Bob Thornton plays Willie, an alcoholic conman who teams up with a black midget to rip off department stores once a year by getting hired as a Santa and then breaking in after hours. I'm sure there's a much simpler way you can break into a department store's safe if that's the kind of thing you're into, but once you climb aboard Willie's sleigh of suspension of disbelief this movie is one hell of a ride. Not only does it say the word "fuck" more than any other holiday movie ever, but it also features a Santa consuming more booze than any other holiday movie ever - and Billy Bob Thornton has even admitted to actually being drunk during the filming of several key scenes!!

So if you're a little bit of a grinch, or if you've always secretly been rooting for Ebenezer when you watch A CHRISTMAS CAROL, then have we got a Quote-Along for you. The Action Pack has pulled out all of the stops yet again, subtitling swear word after swear word in full on karaoke style so you can read along with all of your favorite Christmas degenerates. We're screening the UNRATED VERSION of this masterpiece, too, so expect even more insanity than they had in the original theatrical release, potentially up on the big screen for the first time ever.

Plus we'll have fake cigarettes so you can puff along with all the cancer lovers on screen, and a drinking game that you'll need to play with non-alcoholic beverages to make sure you still have a liver after the show is over.

And before the show? We're having a genuine tostada eating competition. If you're familiar with Willie's cooking then you should know exactly what that kind of tostada really is... (Henri Mazza)
