Looking for bitter cynical Christmas movies

Not necessarily bitter movies that happen to take place at Christmas (ie Gremlins). I'm looking for movies that are about the holiday, just from a "different" perspective.

Bad Santa is a perfect example. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, although not as bitter, is also a reasonable choice.

I wouldn't recommend Silent Night Deadly Night 2 to anyone.

Spoiler:
It's basically the same movie (including the same footage) as the first one, told from the perspective of a mental patient.
