Worst Movie Santa Clauses
12.22.08 by reelz
It's the happiest time of the year once again. Rather than dole out the standard list of the best holiday classics to warm your heart, we prefer to shake things up a bit. First we offered Six Movies for People Who Hate Christmas, featuring a selection of alternative holiday flicks for those who aren't quite in the spirit.
Today, we take a look at everyone's favorite bearded fat man, Santa Claus. Now we all know that Edmund Gwenn was a wonderful Santa in Miracle on 34th Street, the only actor to take home an Oscar as St. Nick. And actors such as Ed Asner in Elf and David Huddleston in Santa Claus: The Movie have certainly done the red suit justice on the silver screen, but what about those other Santas? The ones that took the legend of Santa in a different direction: Boozing, scaring, kicking, and even killing? Those are the ones we take a look at here. Read all about them in our list of the Worst Movie Santa Clauses.
