Bad Santa 2 is coming to theaters just in time for the holidays. Lyles Movie Files readers in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area can catch it early for free. I really enjoyed the original film and I’m curious if this will be a case of the original being lighting in a bottle. Maybe this will be the rare comedy sequel that is just as entertaining as its predecessor.
Here’s the film synopsis:
Bad Santa 2 returns Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is ‘the kid’ – chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.
Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Kathy Bates, as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. Sunny raises the bar for the gang’s ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee Christina Hendricks, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.
You better watch out: Bad Santa 2 is coming to town.
