December 1, 2016
This film is far from perfect, but it made me and some other terribly frightened folks laugh for a while in the dark.

The whole series is based on the notion that no one is any better than his worst impulse.

We have long hoped that there might one day be a sequel. We need to be careful what we wish for.

At its best, Bad Santa 2 feels like an echo of its predecessor. At its worst, it's unfunny, crass, and uncomfortable (not in a good way).

Once-edgy jokes about Santa's vomit-caked beard, his open hostility toward children, and sexual proclivities in line with R. Crumb are now compulsory elements, like Bruce Willis saying "Yippie-ki-yay" in a Die Hard sequel.

No doubt some critics will slam Bad Santa 2 as a lump of coal in our holiday movie stockings. To which I would say: why be so rough on lumps of coal?

We asked for a filthy new Bad Santa for Christmas and now know the same letdown as unwrapping a box of sensible socks on Dec. 25, albeit dirty ones.

Bad Santa 2 doesn't hate Christmas. It just hates women.

Bad Santa 2 has to make do with director Mark Waters (Mean Girls), who is both more sentimental and more accepting of broad, panicky comedy.

This sequel actively devalues the compassion-on-the-knife-edge-of-misanthropy that distinguished the original in favor of a mainstream gross-out cartoon.
