If you’re searching for a promotional clip that features the repetitive use of the f-word, the sight of someone punching their mom in the face and the discussion and acts of lewd sexual behavior, then Christmas has come early in the form of the new Bad Santa 2 trailer.
The crooked character known as Willie T. Soke (Billie Bob Thorton) is back after a 13-year hiatus. But it’s Kathy Bates, who plays Willie’s mother Sunny who steals the spotlight with her filthy, clever one-liners. In the film, Willie and his mini-sidekick Marcus (Tony Cox) plan a scheme to scam a holiday charity. The plot thickens when Willie grows an attraction for the red-headed bombshell Diane (Christina Hendricks), who is the head of the charitable organization. So to make the plan work, they’ll need a seasoned criminal, who takes form as Willie’s butch mother, Sunny (Kathy Bates).
In the hilarious trailer, Sunny receives her long-lost son with a heartfelt “shit-stick!” and replies to a blow to the face with “You still hit like your fuckin’ father.”
I haven’t seen the first installment of Bad Santa (2003), but this is a great introduction to the lewdly induced holiday film. Certainly, Billie Bob’s character has been a jackass and will continue to be a jackass in this year’s forthcoming sequel. The film serves as a break from the traditional jolly holiday film, and it’s safe to say that I am here for the drunk moments, foul-mouthed conversations, and of course the theme of 2016, scamming!
If the vulgar language and sexual behavior isn’t enough to attract you to see this film, you’ll be ecstatic to know that the film is directed by Mark Waters, who brought us the cult classic Mean Girls.
The prequel starred two comedic legends, the late Bernie Mac and John Ritter. Bad Santa 2 storms into theaters November 23. Check out the NSFW trailer!
