Bad Santa 2: Review | Toronto Star

Toronto Star

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, the sequel to the hilariously subversive 2003 black comedy returns star Billy Bob Thornton as Willie Soke, the alcoholic, abusive, foul-mouthed rip-off artist in a red suit who had his own take on the true meaning of Christmas. Tony Cox is back as his equally rough-hewn larcenous elf sidekick, Marcus. And Vancouver’s Brett Kelly, now 23, is no less cherubic as naïve man-child, Thurman Merman.

The story is too old to be commented.
