1. Billy Bob Thornton as Willie T. Stokes in Bad Santa (2003)
This cult comedy hit is dark enough to justify a definition at least one notch beyond the term "black comedy." That being said, this caustic tale is laugh-out-loud hilarious from start to finish. As Willie T. Stokes, Thornton’s foul-mouthed performance is one for the ages, a new standard movie drunk actors of the future can aspire to. Stumbling around in his tattered Santa suit, Willie manages to eke out a charming moment here and there in-between atrocities like pissing his pants while kiddies wait in line to sit on his lap. But after he “beat the s*** out of some kids,” as Willie puts it, he finds purpose in his life, helping a young outcast come out of his shell and stand up to his skater tormenter.
