Better replace that glass of milk with some whisky, because Bad Santa is coming to town.
Billy Bob Thornton reprises his role as Willie, a seeming photo-negative of the Christmas spirit who ends up in a Santa Claus outfit for the holiday season. A drunken, abrasive and greedy man, Willie is looking to make some money. Along with his partner, Marcus (Tony Cox), Willie again dons the Santa suit for nefarious ends, intending to rob a Chicago charity that he collects money for. It seems that in spite of the falling out Willie had with Marcus in “Bad Santa,” the two have found their way back to each other. Sure to complicate the scheme are Willie’s mother Kathy (Sunny Bates) and charity employee Diane (Christina Hendricks), whom Willie can’t seem to take his eyes off.
If you’re looking to get ready for the holidays with some family dysfunction, petty crime, alcoholism, questions of paternity and all manner of other depravities, “Bad Santa 2” should be right up your alley. It hits theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
