BAD SANTA was a big hit for Dimension Films so one would expect that when the DVD was released, it would have been full with special features. Sadly, that was not the case. The only special features to be found on the DVD for BAD SANTA are a few brief deleted scenes, some outtakes, and this so-so making-of featurette. I dug the title, but the featurette itself left me wanting more. BAD SANTA: NOT YOUR TYPICAL Christmas MOVIE only runs nine minutes long. I like featurettes to be a bit longer than ten minutes. In those nine minutes, we learn a bit about the genesis of the story and details into casting, but other than that, there isn't a whole lot of information into the production of the movie. The majority of the running time consists of cast and crew members talking about how wonderful so and so was and what I joy working on the film was. In other words, it's 'your typical' making-of featurette. I would have preffered I much longer, more detailed documentary into the making of BAD SANTA since there's really nothing like it. It's an instant Christmas classic.
