Billy Bob Thornton (Our Brand is Crisis), Tony Cox (The Warrior’s Way) and Brett Kelly reunite in a new unrated version of the raunchy and wholly inappropriate comedy Bad Santa 2.

Fueled by cheap whiskey and greed, Willie Soke (Thornton), teams up once again with his angry sidekick, Marcus (Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve run by curvaceous Diane (Christina Hendricks, The Neon Demon). But the arrival of Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny (Kathy Bates, Tammy), and “the kid” – Thurman Merman – may upset their plan. Sounds like another delightful holiday!

Bad Santa 2 arrives in a new Unrated version available only on Blu-ray and 4K UHD+Blu-ray skus, which also include the original version of the film and the exclusive bonus feature “That’s My Willie,” an original animated series.  Additional bonus materials featured on Blu-ray, 4K UHD and DVD include the featurettes “Thurman Then & Now,” and “Just Your Average Red Band Featurette;” “Jingle Balls” – an adult version of the classic holiday song, along with gag reel, alternate opening and ending, deleted scenes and more.

Directed by Mark Waters, the movie was loathed by critics, garnering a lousy 23% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 115 published reviews. It fared equally blah at the domestic box office, where it rang up a $17.7 million during wide release in November, 2016.
