Joyless and dour rather than savagely funny
December 6, 2018
Released 13 years after the darkly funny yet rather uplifting original, this sequel is a bad-tempered misery fest which laughs at the weaker or less privileged. Which, if I were more of a chin-stroker, I would suggest is much like society now.

Plot holes are glaring, even more noticeable thanks to the series of flat one-liners and any fleeting moments that do work are usually followed with long stretches that just lie on the screen like a fruitcake that gets re-gifted multiple times.

It's just a lazy attempt to cash in on that sweet, sweet nostalgia that's all the rage without the burden of originality.

Honestly, we all deserve better. Do yourself a favor this holiday season and give yourself the gift of self-worth, skip this Christmas brick and re-watch the original Bad Santa.

Billy Bob Thornton is once more perfect as the embittered Willie. He hasn't changed a bit and you can't help but love him for it.

If you're forced into close quarters with relatives you can't stand, you could do far worse than sneaking off to check out the boundary-pushing gags found here.

It's like Willie said when Thurman found Asprin in his advent calendar - "Well they can't all be winners".

Yes, a mere 13 years after the original, Billy Bob Thornton and Tony Cox are back with Bad Santa 2 and it's just as foul-mouthed and tasteless as ever.

Bad Santa 2 is not that terrible and is saved by its emotional ending. Just don't watch it if you are easily offended.

Ultimately, Bad Santa 2 proves to be the equivalent of a kid getting a board game for Christmas when they wanted a Xbox One.

When you remember how well the first Bad Santa drew its characters-with depth and cruelty and razor-sharp precision-the sequel is less "White Christmas" and more white elephant.

It's fitting that the star of "Misery" is here for the torture that follows.

Apart from the presumed financial incentive -- the original did pretty well in theaters and was a big hit on home video -- why was Bad Santa 2 even made in the first place?

Mark Waters (Mean Girls), knows how to frame the dialogue, but apart from a terrific gag involving an electric oven the movie lacks a corrupted physicality.

Bad Santa 2 is a poorly conceived cash-in that has fortunately backfired in every conceivable way.

[Bad Santa 2] seems to be more interested in spitting out dirty jokes instead of finding a real story to work with
January 1, 2017
Bad Santa 2's never-nice act wears thin this time around, seeming more shruggingly sneering, scowling, and sweary as it trudges along in its re-boots.

The really offensive thing about it is how lazy it is.

These jokes may be good for momentary release, but the joke's no longer on the holiday: It's on us.
