What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bad Santa, though it features a Santa Claus character and Christmas theme, is not for kids and may even be too much for some adults. It includes profanity, nonstop drinking and smoking, extremely explicit sexual references and situations, and graphic violence, including a suicide attempt, hitting below the belt, murder, and shooting. Note: This is not a review of Badder Santa, an unrated version that was released on DVD and is available through Netflix.
