Bad Santa

    The following list of scenes are the differences between the Region 1 Bad Santa DVD and the Region 1 unrated Badder Santa DVD. From what I can gather all of these scenes appear in the Region 4 MA rated version, except for the first scene where Willie is walking out of the department store and is stopped by the guard. In the Badder Santa version he says something along the lines of "Something to cripple your sister with" when questioned what he has in his baggy pants. In the Region 4 version he simply replies "My dick - you wanna see it."

Alternate footage of Willie leaving the department store. This is 30 seconds of alternate footage that provides a dirtier exchange with the security guard.

Florida robbery and strip club. This is four minutes of footage showing Willie robbing a home and taking a stripper home. There's stripper nudity and offensive language.

Extended Big & Tall dressing room scene. An extra few seconds of grunting and thrusting.

Extended arcade scene with Willie and underage girl. There are around seven seconds worth of extra thrusts behind the girl playing pinball.

Extended food court scene. This amounts to about 45 seconds of extra swearing.

Extended draughts scene. 10 seconds more of Willie shouting at the kid after losing.

Extended Jacuzzi scene. About five more seconds of Willie and Sue having sex in the hot tub.

Parking lot encounter with security guard. About 10 seconds of new footage with Willie confronting a security guard outside the mall.

Extended granny death-scare scene. A tiny, 2 second extension of the granny scare.

Extended murder of Gin. A bug-eyed extension of the car death.

Extended final robbery. About 10 seconds more of preparing for the final robbery.

Extended final shootout at the mall. About a minute more of gunshots and explosions.
