Bad Santa 2 (2016): Comedy / Crime / Drama

Having never left the rock bottom, Willie follows again his angry sidekick and puts the Santa suit once more only, this time, to rob a Chicago charity.

Still hilarious, still politically incorrect, still Thornton and Cox! Once more, the starting monologue followed by the alley vomiting, mirror the same reality Willie still lives on, highly indicating that he learned nothing for his past mistakes and that his life never took off. Thankfully for us, this is the case and consequently, he accepts Marcus’ next job… alongside his mother. The dysfunction in the family shows straight away, and we, as the audience, get to enjoy the results.

Even though not as funny as its predecessor, Bad Santa 2 is a must-watch during the Christmas period and the perfect antidote against… soppy, yawnsome, dead-boring romance/comedies which you’d rather watch paint dry. Thornton and Cox are still the Willie and Marcus we love and Cathie Bates is a great addition to the cast! Extra round of applause deserves Brett Kelly for getting Thurman Merman’s physique to match his old self. Oh, and Christina Hendricks is as seductive as always…
