With BAD SANTA, Billy Bob Thornton proved he was willing to go all the way-no holds barred in portraying unsympathetic, foulmouthed jerks. Here he brings that same skill to bear as the title character, a sadistic junior high school gym teacher who is every uncoordinated or overweight student's worst nightmare. Best-selling author of self-help books, Farley (Sean William Scott) thinks the tortures he's suffered at the hands of Woodcock are just the stuff of traumatic childhood memory, until he goes home to Nebraska to pick up an award and learns his widowed mother (Susan Sarandon) is in love with the man who made him miserable all those years ago. Director Craig Gillespie Star Billy Bob Thornton, Seann William Scott, Susan Sarandon, Ethan Suplee, Amy Poehler Special Features: Full frame format. Year of Release: 2007.
