It's that time of the year again, "Bad Santa" fans. When we all gather 'round to watch Billy Bob Thornton's ornery and foul-mouthed Willie T. Soke bless the patrons of the Saguaro Square Mall with some of his cranky Christmas cheer. But what if you don't have a "Bad Santa" DVD or Blu-ray to dig up? Luckily, there are several different streaming options to choose from for both "Bad Santa" and "Bad Santa 2." 

Over the years, the two films have become staples on many people's December watchlists. While "Bad Santa 2" was both a critical and box-office disappointment (via Box Office Mojo), the first one is considered to be a comedy classic and a must-watch for adults looking to have R-rated laughs around the holidays. For those who haven't seen the movie, Thornton's Soke delights as a despicable department store Santa, and of course, there's Bernie Mac and John Ritter's appearances, which are also major highlights. "Bad Santa" was dedicated in Ritter's memory following his death in September 2003, just under two months before the movie came out. "Bad Santa 2" was also dedicated to Mac and Ritter (via HuffPost).

Bad Santa movies can be found on YouTube, VUDU, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play

The "Bad Santa" films are not streaming on any platform at this time. They are, however, available for digital download via renting or owning. You can buy or rent "Bad Santa" and "Bad Santa 2" on platforms like Amazon Prime, iTunes, Redbox, and Vudu. Prime currently offers the cheapest option, with renting set at $1.99 and purchasing at $12.99. The other sites have their prices set at $3.99 and $14.99.

Despite Miramax being owned by Paramount, you can't find "Bad Santa" or its sequel on Paramount+. Maybe next year Billy Bob fans! Don't ever expect a "Bad Santa 3" though, folks.
