Bad Santa 2 ( 15)

Ayrshire Post - - WEEKEND TICKET -

Thir­teen years have passed be­tween the fiendishly funny orig­i­nal Bad Santa flick and this ill- ad­vised fol­low- up story.

Not only was it not worth the wait, but you will be left wish­ing they had not both­ered mak­ing it at all.

De­spite a caus­tic tone, the first flick had a heart be­neath the curs­ing and grouch­i­ness – and a bar­rel of laughs mak­ing it a true fes­tive favourite.

Sadly the mean- spirit­ed­ness is di­alled up to 10 in a slug­gish sec­ond go- around that not even a re­turn­ing Billy Bob Thorn­ton and new­bie Kathy Bates can save.

There are a sprin­kling of laughs, but that’s not enough to make this huge dis­ap­point­ing se­quel wor­thy of fill­ing any stock­ings this Christ­mas.
