Film: Bad Santa 2

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.
