Bad Santa 2

I’m going to have to ask you to watch your language when you’re representing the suit.
17 December 2017

In its own fucked up way Bad Santa had heart, and Bad Santa 2 really doesn’t.

I can’t say I found it to be as repulsive as critics did but it’s definitely a film that didn’t need to happen. The three main leads are back but the writers and original director are not, and it hurts.

It’s perhaps good for a cheap laugh with friends but nothing truly hangs together to make something worth watching again (or at all).

Stick to the first one for a shot of the real spirit of Christmas.
