After 13 failed years of trying to clean up his act, Willie Stokes (Billy Bob Thornton) is ready to grab the safecracking tools and Santa suit again when ex-partner/”elf” Marcus (Tony Cox) asks him to help separate a Chicago charity home from its donations. Besides having to cut his reprobate mom (Kathy Bates) in on the job, and being saddled with now-grown ward Thurman (Brett Kelly), what happens when he falls for the charity’s administrator (Christina Hendricks)? Long-awaited follow-up to the dark seasonal farce co-stars Ryan Hansen, Jenny Zigrino, Jeff Skowron. 92 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
