Willie T. Stokes is a convicted con man who's led a miserable life. He drinks heavily and constantly embarrasses himself publicly. He only works once a year dressed as Santa. But then come Christmas Eve, he and his pint-sized helper dwarf Marcus stage elaborate robberies and take their department stores for everything they got. This time around, Willie gets distracted by large women, a bartender who is attracted to Santas, and a kid who's convinced he's the real deal. However, Marcus must once again put up with Willie's heavy drinking and a series of incidents that constantly shoot themselves in the foot. Will Willie and Marcus make it to next Christmas? Or will this be the year the dynamic duo finally face justice?Written by
The unrated version of the film furthers the record for the most profanities in a Christmas film, including 170 uses of "fuck", 74 uses of "shit", 31 uses of "ass", 10 uses of "bitch", and 1 use of "bastard", in variable forms. See more »
When Willie brings the stripper home and listens to his answering machine, the sound of a tape rewinding is heard. However, the machine is clearly a digital model, as revealed by a closeup during Marcus' call, and thus has no tape. See more »

Wonderfully Funny, Very Irreverrent Christmas Movie
This is one of the best Christmas movie of all times. The casting is brilliant, and the chemistry between all the characters is very much present.
Billy Bob Thornton was especially funny as the loser in life who dons the red suit every Christmas. Just seeing Santa behaving drunken and swearing every other word tells you how different this is from the typical Christmas family friendly movies.
Bernie Mac was funny in his supporting role, and Tony Cox was OK. Billy Bob was phenomenal.
I've watched this movie twice already this Christmas season, and I loved every minute of it.
