It's the most wonderful time of the year again, and the not-in-the-slightest reformed safe-cracker Willie Soke is breathing the air of freedom once more, failing miserably to keep himself afloat thirteen whole years after his last achievements. Still addicted to alcohol and at the end of his tether, Soke will reluctantly accept his former sidekick Marcus' truce and his daring plan for another Yuletide caper--this time targeting a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. However, as Willie slips back into his Santa's red suit again, much to his disappointment, he will discover that another partner in crime is also eager to join in the heist: his desperate for cash estranged mother, Sunny. Can Willie work around his mummy issues, especially now that the closest thing to family, Thurman Merman, comes to town for a visit?Written by
The film's story takes place less than a week before Christmas, but Sunny is shown watching TV from a toilet because she doesn't want to miss the finale of "The Bachelor." A fall edition of "The Bachelor" has not aired since 2007, and whenever it was on in the fall, the finale was in late November. In fact, "The Bachelor" has never aired in December. See more »

I have to admit that I might not be the target audience as I was hoping that my Sneak Preview ticket would land me in a showing of Arrival. But instead it was Bad Santa 2.
As I hadn't watched the first one, I had no expectations coming into this one. What I saw though was a horrible piece of comedy and wanna be edgy screen writers with a clichéd main stream comedy approach.
Skip this if you like good movies. You might enjoy this if the funniest thing you saw this year was naked Sasha Baron Cohen taken from behind by an elephant while sitting in another elephants vagina. And even that movie was much funnier than what Bad Santa 2 tried to do here.
