It’s no wonder they are understandably some curious Netflix subscribers out there wondering if one of the many films that occupy the streaming service’s impressive library will be Bad Santa 2.

What is Bad Santa 2 about?

The first Bad Santa centered on a drunken con man and safecracker named Willie, played by Thornton. Every year he would pull a robbery pretending to be a mall Santa and would live off of the cash until next season when he would do it all over again. Swearing he was done, his partner Marcus who poses as his elf helper on the jobs and uses his size to his advantage, pulls him back in for one last payday.

The depraved, unkept mall Santa experiences all kinds of debauchery in the arcade, dressing rooms, and food court of the mall they are planning to rob. He even ends up staying with a slow-witted misfit child named Thurmon Mermon, who lives with his grandmother and believes that Willie is the real Santa. In the end, Willie ends up doing the right things, and while no one would call him a saint afterward, he does give audiences a gratifying and somewhat heartfelt ending.

Bad Santa 2 picks up several years after the first film and shows viewers that Willie’s happy ending was short-lived a she is back to boozing hard at the bottom. Things take an unexpected turn when Marcus, his former partner, is released from jail with a plan to rip off a charity with the help of Willie’s mother, whom he does not get along with at all.

The end result is another hilarious, raunchy Christmas comedy. Along with Thronton, Tony Cox, Brett Kelly reprised their roles for the Bad Santa 2 with the addition of new castmembers, Kathy Bates and Christina Hendricks.
