What would Christmas be without all of the great movies that focus on it? Many families include their favorite films in their annual yuletide festivities. Popular choices include It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, and White Christmas. However, if you find yourself lumped in with the people who want to projectile vomit when watching these sappy films, maybe you need some Christmas movies with a little more edge. The following list of 12 movies pack in just enough expletives, vulgarity, and violence to get you through the overt cheeriness of the holidays.
1. ‘Bad Moms Christmas’
In this sequel to the 2016 raunch-fest Bad Moms, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn return to take on the trials and tribulations of motherhood during the holiday season. Not only do these moms have to deal with the hustle and bustle of Christmas, but also put up with visits from their own matriarchs, Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines, and Susan Sarandon. While critics were not onboard with this Christmas film, fans of Bad Moms loved the R-rated take on the holidays.
2. ‘Bad Santa’
Billy Bob Thornton is the best at being the absolute worst mall Santa Claus in the history of the treasured holiday tradition. He drinks so much he urinates on himself, he falls asleep in his chair, he curses, he yells, and that’s all on a good day at work. This dark comedy is a sickeningly funny look at a desperate man who robs department stores on Christmas and drinks away his earnings until the next holiday season arrives. If this movie were a person, it would get an entire coal mine from Santa Claus for being so naughty.
