Bad Santa 2 (15)
Mark Waters | USA | 2016 | 92’
The original Bad Santa was a breath of fresh air in 2002: a profane, unsentimental Christmas movie that was funny as hell. Fourteen years later, Santa impersonator, Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton), is back. Kathy Bates plays Soke’s mum and is set to be just as foul-mouthed as her son, Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), plays an Ivy League-educated, head of a charity who apparently has a thing for shady lowlifes in a Santa costume. It should be the funniest film this Christmas.
