Movie Plot

Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) teams up with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is chubby and cheery Thurman Merman, a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie's sliver of humanity. Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Willie's horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke, who raises the bar for the gang's ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior.

For me both thumbs up
 

My wife and I both really enjoyed Bad Santa. The original was just that - original. Billy Bob Thornton was great as the "done with it all" character, Willy was funny, Thurman was perfect and the story made some sense. Rob a big department store of its biggest take of the year. This appalling "sequel" is juts a really bad remake of the original. Same main characters but this time I just don't buy Billy Bob's irredeemable scumbag. Willy is just primarily annoying. Making Thurman do what they make him do is unforgivable and introducing Billy Bob's mum (an actress barely 5 years older than him) as an explanation for why Billy Bob is the way he is is ridiculous. The story is the same as the original, just a different outfit to rob (a charity this time, to make it more cruel!!) but the jokes aren't funny, the characters hollow versions of their originals, the "Billy Bob likes anal sex with big girls" shtick doesn't work this time and the story is just banal. I was really looking forward to seeing this. And now I wish I hadn't. A waste of the talent involved. Do yourself a favour - find a cheap DVD of the original and enjoy. Watching this one will ruin your whole day.

Bad but not in a good way
 

I never ever tried to write movie review but for this movie I made exception.As for me it was hilarious the jokes the acting all original.people have to judge the movie by the current age and content standard we are watching over the cinema or TV.Now days its very difficult to find such a movie where you will laugh like a kid. If you want to watch this movie watch it like a dumb kid not like a rocket scientist.Don't behave like over smart ass critics looking into so much deep for something which isn't there and then blame it on the movie.This movie is for fun for few good laughs not intent to win The Oscar.Like a meal at the food truck as compare to fine five star restaurant.So for me I will rate the movie 8 out of 10 .Have fun guys.

Swaps charm and soul for sheer vulgarity
 

Showing that lightning often doesn't strike twice, especially when it comes to unexpected hit comedies (The Hangover series, Nutty Professor etc.), Bad Santa 2 is a pale imitation of the cult 2003 hit that saw Xmas painted blacker than black thanks to Billy Bob Thornton's alcoholic Santa/petty thief Willie Soke and his partnership with dwarf acquaintance Marcus Skidmore. ..

Three Academy Award Winners are in this film
 

The idea of making a sequel to Bad Santa is one that was first raised in 2009, only six years after its release. It's an idea that should have really been acted upon then or just left in the past because Bad Santa 2, a sequel that comes thirteen years after the original, is not a very good film at all. ..

Big as ever, twice as ugly!
 

Don't get me wrong. The original "Bad Santa" is a film I love to watch. Today when we were watching it struck me that there were 3 Academy Award Winners in "Bad Santa 2" Kathy Bates Won Best Actress for "Misery" Octavia Spenser won Best Supporting Actress for "The Help". Billy Bob Thornton won An Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for "Sling-blade" So why it is obvious all of them must of been paid well to do this film. Now I loved the original film. This film is okay but I will not go out of my way to watch it again! In this film its been 10 years since the events of the original film. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) teams up with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is chubby and cheery and now grown-up Thurman Merman, a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie's sliver of humanity. Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Willie's horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke, who raises the bar for the gang's ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. There is some big laughs in this film. There is just not as many as the first one. I was disappointed because the first one was a laugh a minute! This film is RATED R so parents keep children away from this film. KEEP IN MIND if you don't like crude behavior then don't watch this. This film is raunchy but I could not help but to laugh.

Bad Santa 2 (2016)
 

The year 2003 gave me two of my favorite Christmas comedies of all time, "Bad Santa" and "Elf". ..

Somewhat belated sequel that is unsurprisingly not as good as the original
 

Who asks for these sequels that come decades later? Was there a band of Bad Santa fans who were petitioning for a sequel all these years later? I don't remember the original film too well as I saw it way back when but I remember it for having a purpose on top of being known for being raunchy and crude. At the time having an adult themed Christmas film was great as there weren't many around and that film was smart and full of laughs. Bad Santa 2 is nowhere near as good, its just BAD. And pointless. The film starts off with Willie Soke being a drunken mess (as usual). As he tries to kill himself he is soon reunited with Thurman and Marcus. This time there's a twist as he must work with his estranged mother to steal money from a charity. Sound interesting? It's not. A lot of the film is phoned in. For the most part the script is lazy and uninteresting its like everyone just rushed through the film. While the film does just go through the motions I liked Kathy Bates in this. She's always a terrific actress and she was easily one of the best parts of the film. The jokes are X-rated as expected but just not bad. Most of the jokes revolve around genitalia and sex as expected. Nothing wrong with vulgar and offensive humor if it actually makes you laugh and is in a film that keeps your attention. Hardly any of them hit though. I'm a fan of Christina Hendricks but she was a one dimensional love interest for Billy Bob Thornton. There's just no dimension in this film. The lines just feel like they were written before hand just to be fit in at random intervals of the film. I'm not the biggest fan of Christmas films as there are probably only 3 or 4 that really resonate with me, but I know a good one when I see one. Avoid this at all costs. Just watch the original and long for Bernie Mac instead. I'll be generous with the rating because its the holidays. 5/10

Bad Decision
 

I really enjoyed this. I tend not to have particularly high standards when watching movies. I expected a degenerate comedy, chock full of inappropriate humour and also laced with profanity. There were also countless scenes that made one want to laugh and throw up a little, given how distasteful they were! (Which is great!) I wanted to see more of Bad Santa, the little person, and Therman Merman! Bad Santa 2 did not disappoint! I was laughing throughout. I'm not one to look at movies through a critical lens. Even so, I could see this movie wasn't as good as the first one, in terms of overall plot and character development. Nonetheless, I got to see my favourite characters one more time on the big screen. And I laughed throughout. It was like seeing old friends again!
