Bad Santa 2 Review - Time Out

Time Out

“You people are monsters,” growls Billy Bob Thornton in the first Bad Santa (2003)—a line that’s doubly funny for coming from a mangy, Scotch-soused mall thief in a stained Santa suit. Apart from being vicious, that movie had a Coen brothers–like sense of fatality to it, along with a hint of honest-to-goodness Christmas redemption. The brittle new sequel has neither of those things, but mainly it lacks director Terry Zwigoff who, as he did with Ghost World and Crumb, suggested a vital, original voice.

The story is too old to be commented.
