FRED CLAUS (2007)
In the movie that proves even Santa comes from a dysfunctional family, Fred Claus tries to make a kid-friendly hero out of fast-talking sleazebag Vince Vaughn, who plays St. Nick's ne'er-do-well brother. Fred gets a shot at redemption when a corporate bureaucrat (Kevin Spacey) threatens the family business. Given its unappetizing mix of treacle and slime, Fred Claus earns its spot in the Bad Holiday Movie Hall of Shame.
