Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, which I apparently gave to my mother a few years ago (based on my uncle's now dubious claim that it was her favorite movie as a kid), is indeed as dreadful as it sounds, and then some. Santa shows up at the beginning, looking half-drunk, giving a slurred interview where he forgets the names of his reindeer and leers over a doll that "does everything a real girl does," prompting the Martian children watching the broadcast on their Martian flat screen television to ask themselves, "What's 'tender loving care'?" This is so far the highlight of the movie.
