Bad Santa 2 Movie Review:
The movie got 4.1 rating on a rating scale of 10. The movie have got disappointing reviews from the general audience as it received a C+ on a scale till F. Though, when we talk about people who have waited for it and who have waited for a long time, this movie has a lot of Christmas gifts for them. Being funny is one part and you just don’t have any problem there because there’s a “bad” in Bad Santa. The only place people have failed to relate are the jokes offending everyone. It is a sequel after a dozen years so expectations were a little too high but in a nicer way. A star cast having academy award winners is promising enough to keep the previous bad Santa as it is.
Most of the film critics have also felt it a little too much. So the first Turkey of the session is served but unfortunately it is not funny.
Bad Santa 2: Focus on News
“The Billy Bob Starrer Falls on Box Office”
A movie that was supposed to have success story just like its prequel failed even after a month of its release. Bad Santa 2 took $26 million to make it to the big screen and after a month’s effort, it has only made approximately $15 million. The same old dirty tricks to get humor has failed on screen. Last chapter of Bad Santa back in 2003 was nice whereas this one is a little too much naughty.
