The only highlight of this one hour Christmas special is that some of the Christmas songs that the School Gyrls sing sound good. Nick Cannon plays a mall security guard who wears a padded bra and a padded butt which is wearing hot pants that say "Security." He spends about half of the show going to the restroom because he was given a laxative by the Bad Santa and his bad elf. Bad Santa and the elf are going to rob the mall. Needless to say, this is a rip-off of the Bad Santa movie. However, a lot worse than the lack of creativity is the acting by Nick Cannon. The bizarre antics and horrible acting of Nick Cannon are enough reason to dislike this movie.
However, there are more reasons. Bad Santa and his elf look like they are on probation from bad acting school. Their idea of acting is to just show up and read the lines. To say that they look like they do not want to be in this movie would be an under-statement. I have not seen such lackluster performances in years of watching TV. I guess even Bad Santa realized he was committing a crime against humanity by performing in this awful turkey.
Then you get the five school gyrls who make a point of tossing out every gangsta slang that they can at every chance. This special sounds like a weird hybrid created by rich phonies who want to pretend they are from the ghetto, so that you end up with Hollywood Ghetto Christmas. Rich celebrity ghetto teeens act as un-Christian as can be, and sing traditional Christmas songs while flashing gang signs as they try to catch Bad Santa and his elf. Into that horrible mix toss in Nick Cannon and his hot pants, scratching his crotch and jiggling his booty in numerous pointless scenes. I guess they needed to fill up time when they ran out of really bad ideas?
The most ridiculous concept of this movie is that it is told in flashback, by the school gyrls when they are old women (wearing gray wigs). Why rip-off every old idea and make an unoriginal movie even less entertaining? I have to wonder if these folks were intentionally trying to make the worst Christmas special in the history of the universe. They have succeeded in making a totally unoriginal Christmas exploitation special.
