10. Bad Santa (2003)
Kicking the list off, we have the Billy Bob Thornton anti-Christmas movie that also happens to be full of Christmas cheer, Bad Santa.
Bad Santa very nearly didn’t make it onto the list, as it battled with the movies that eventually landed 11th and 12th, but a few late votes pushed this into the Top 10.
Billy Bob has rarely been better than he is as Willie and the whole movie is supported really well with Tony Cux, Lauren Graham as well as the late Bernie Mac and John Ritter. But it’s Brett Kelly who steals the show as “The Kid” – a brilliant performance that somehow hasn’t made him a bigger star.
Talk of a sequel has been bounded around since the movie was released in 2003, but nothing has ever come to fruition. For us here at Flickering Myth, we hope it stays that way.
