This just went from an ABSOLUTELY MUST SEE to a GOD I CAN'T WAIT TO MUST SEE!!
From the commercials I've seen, it looks pretty damn funny. And since I loved Ghost World, I'm looking forward to seeing Bad Santa.
Also, didn't Miramax get in trouble with Disney because of the ultra violence in Kill Bill?
Sounds like hype from the Disney execs to me (meaning, mock outrage--not the description of the movie).
Is Bob Clark involved in any way (rhetorical question; I know he's not)? This sounds a lot like his Santa from Black Christmas. And, of course, we all know about his A Christmas Story Santa.
Well, I trust IMDB News about as much as I trust the National Enquirer, which is, not at all.
I still thought it was funny.
I'm first in line for anything Zwigoff does. I've been a fan since his 1986 debut film Louie Bluie (which really needs to be on DVD. Howard Armstrong died earlier this year, so there went the chance for a commentary that would have been FANTASTIC!).
What nerve! Coke isn't complaining - and they invented him, so what's the big deal?
A similar piece was posted at The Drudge Report.
Frankly I doubt the veracity of any "uproar" that occurs only TEN DAYS before the flick is set to open.
I've been told the movie is very vulgar and very funny, but for Disney to make a stink at this late date fairly reeks of 'reverse advertising'.
what about all the subliminal sex messages disney has in their movies. i bet those sick bastards really like that kind of stuff.
Even if they were dumbstruck but what they saw, where the hell were they when they greenlighted picture? I am so sick and tired of studios that when a movie is done and ready to come out, then they decide to bitch about what is in the movie? Didn't they read the script? Weren't they ever present on the set maybe since they were funding it? Doesn't the title of the film say it all?
Sounds like totally BS and a great way to build business...but on the other hand, it is starting to get really hold...It is just like Universal and "House of A 1,000 Corpses." Take a look at the freaking title studio's and it should at least tell you the spirit of the movie.
The previews were funny. I loved Ghost World. It's one of John Ritter's last screen roles (it'll be great to see him and Billy Bob together again). Sounds like a winner to me.
As for "Santa being invented by Coke", not true according to snopes. Link below:
It's. Rated. R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R! R!
What is it rated? R!
Nothing but bullshit.
Saw the commercial last night looks like garbage. Sad to see John Ritter go out like this on the big screen.
Nothing Disney does anymore is "in the spirit of Walt Disney." Michael Eisner's "leadership" has probably sent dear old Walt spinning in his grave far more often than this movie ever could.
This "outrage" with Miramax is getting pretty old, too. Disney knew what Miramax was all about long before they partnered with them.
"I'm shocked, shocked to find bad behavior in a film entitled Bad Santa!"
"Your corporate dividends from Miramax, sir."
"Oh, thank you very much."
MyY bad - made popular would have been a better choice of words.
Anyway, us usual, it looks like Disney's left *** doesn't know what the right one is doing.
I saw it yesterday and it's very very vulgar and very very funny. I didn't expect much going in but I was extremely pleased with how darkly funny the film is.
It's a good anti-Christmas movie.
Total marketing hype. Even if they really did feel this way, why the hell would they publicize it?
