    It was a pretty funny movie if you find crude language and midgets laughable... I do :)

    Anyways, I saw "Bad Santa". What makes "Badder Santa" the un-rated version? I'm praying that it means I can see a nude of Lauren Graham of Gilmore Girl fame :) :)

    Buena Vista has simultaneously released two versions of Bad Santa on DVD?the theatrical cut and an unrated cut titled, interestingly, Badder Santa. On this unrated cut, you get about 7 minutes of extended and alternate takes, as well as some altogether new footage. Buena Vista kindly sent out to reviewers a listing of the new footage, but after closely comparing both cuts, I've come away with even more new footage not communicated by Buena Vista, as well as an unfortunate error in their memo. Read on for a precise account of new footage in Badder Santa.

    WARNING: By necessity, spoilers follow.



















    0:05?Alternate take of Willie leaving the department store in Milwaukee. This is 30 seconds of alternate footage that provides a dirtier exchange with the security guard.
    0:12?Florida robbery and strip club. This is 4 minutes of new footage of Willie robbing a home and taking a stripper home. There's stripper nudity and hilariously offensive language.
    0:25?Despite prerelease notification from Buena Vista, there is no extension to the "*** me Santa" scene in the car.
    0:28?Extended Big & Tall dressing room scene. This is perhaps 5-10 extra seconds of grunting and thrusting as seen from John Ritter's perspective.
    0:31?Extended arcade scene with Willie and underage girl. We get about 7 seconds worth of extra thrusts behind the girl playing pinball.
    0:39?Extended food court scene. This amounts to about 45 seconds of extra berating and language.
    0:42?Extended checkers scene. About 10 seconds more of Willie shouting at the kid after losing at checkers.
    0:44?Extended Jacuzzi scene. About 5 seconds more of Willie and Sue going at it in the hot tub.
    0:49?Parking lot encounter with security guard. About 10 seconds of new footage with Willie confronting a security guard outside the mall.
    1:06?Extended granny death-scare scene. A tiny, 2-second extension of the granny scare.
    1:11?Extended murder of Gin. A bug-eyed extension of the car death.
    1:15?Extended final robbery. About 10 seconds more of preparing for the final robbery.
    1:22?Extended final shootout at the mall. About a minute more of gunshots and explosions.

    I saw the original in the theater and bought Badder Santa, and i didn't notice a single thing different. I'm sure if i watched them back to back or something, i would, but i didn't notice them until reading this thread and thinking about it.

    Thanks for posting the differences. I will now avoid going out of my way to see Badder Santa.
