Critic Reviews

80 The Hollywood Reporter | Justin Lowe
Even more inappropriate physical gags, foul-mouthed dialogue and outrageous situations all contribute to raising the stakes, as Waters pushes the cast to amiably outdo the original. Read full review

75 Slant Magazine | Oleg Ivanov
Both a potent rendering of and cure for the holiday blues, Bad Santa 2 shows that even the most hopeless situations can be remedied and that just about anyone is capable of redemption Read full review

42 Indiewire | Eric Kohn
Once again, the screenplay (by Johnny Rosenthal and Shauna Cross) goes out of its way to put terrible lines in its characters’ mouths and dares viewers to laugh. However, it’s gotten harder to take this form of jarring lowbrow humor, especially when it serves no purpose beyond shock value. Read full review

40 Variety | Andrew Barker
It’s essentially a hangout movie populated exclusively with some of the worst people imaginable, rarely with any sort of solid scene-setting or straight-men to provide context. Read full review

40 TheWrap | Dave White
It’s impossible to watch Bad Santa 2 without getting the sense that people who knew how to do their jobs were studio-noted out of their minds and forced to run a futile obstacle course hampered by budget restrictions, shortened shooting schedules, and general carelessness. Read full review

30 Screen International | Tim Grierson
An agonisingly strained attempt at misanthropic comedy, Bad Santa 2 is puerile when it should be shocking, calculating when it should be transgressive, and listless when it should be liberating. Read full review

20 New York Daily News | Edward Douglas
Billy Bob Thornton’s grouchy Santa is finally back, but his sequel is pretty ho-ho-horrible. Read full review
