Bad Santa is a 2003 American Black Comedy film directed by Terry Zwigoff and produced by The Coen Brothers.Willie Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) is a drunk Jerkass safe cracker who along with his midget accomplice Marcus has a yearly routine of getting jobs as a Mall Santa and Elf respectively during the holidays and robbing the mall's safe on Christmas Eve after closing time. During one such stint, Wille meets a kid (who is mostly referred to in the movie as "The Kid") who inadvertently saves him from being beaten up. After a run in with the mall's unscrupulous security chief (Bernie Mac) posing as a police officer, Willie, his girlfriend Sue and Marcus move in with The Kid, who lives alone with his senile grandmother (his mother is dead and his dad is in jail for embezzlement). Willie starts to warm up to the Kid and starts acting as a surrogate father...of sorts.
