Quotes

Terry Zwigoff: I received the script from my agent, who sorta warned me ahead of time it was a film that would never get made. So I got the script, read it in one sitting actually I was on a plane I think when I read it, and I was laughing so loud sorta getting embarrassed about the whole thing and it was really funny the dialog was really great and I called her and said "Yeah I wanna do the film". and the said pretty much "Good luck" ya know, "Good luck finding anybody to make it."

'Your typical' making of making-of featurette
23 June 2005 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

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.
