The concept for the film came from the Coen Brothers, and although they did not write/direct, they were heavily involved in its production. If you enjoy, e.g. The Big Lebowski, you'll enjoy Bad Santa.
I don't recall my thought process at the time, I may have just tagged along with friends, but I did see "The Big Lebowski". Which in retrospect is pretty surprising, perhaps I decided to trust the Coens. My impressions were far less favorable than most.
Wouldn't Ben-Hur be an Easter movie?
Good point. Seeing as it starts with the birth in Bethlehem I often think of it as being an Xmas theme. It is often shown around Xmas, although not nearly as frequently as it is around Easter. It is a fantastically well made film which I have watched at least a dozen times.
