DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets - BAD SANTA, GO!, 9.30pm

IT’S very tough to iso­late the fun­ni­est scene in this movie but it’s dif­fi­cult to go past the se­quence in­volv­ing Santa (Billy Bob Thorn­ton) hav­ing sex with a pros­ti­tute in the Big and Tall women’s dress­ing room and the se­ries of fol­lowup meet­ings be­tween Santa, his elf, the de­part­ment store man­ager (John Ritter) and the head of se­cu­rity (Bernie Mac). In other hands, this could’ve been a very grubby movie in­deed, and as it is now, it’s won­der­fully bor­der­line. And what a cast. Billy Bob Thorn­ton is fan­tas­tic, so are Lau­ren Gra­ham, Cloris Leach­man, John Ritter and Bernie Mac.
