Willie’s life hasn’t changed much. He had been fired from every job, drinks himself to sleep, and still wants to die. He was in the middle of killing himself with Thurman walked into his hotel room. A man gave Thurman a phone and $2,000, so Willie will meet with him. Willie goes to the meeting location to find Marcus sitting at the table. Marcus did 10 years in prison but got out because of good behavior. Marcus tells Willie they can do a job and score $2 million. There are just a few details, Marcus left out. First, the money is from a charity. Second, the operation is masterminded by Willie’s mother, Sunny. Willie doesn’t want any part of his mother, but when Marcus makes a secret deal to work with Willie and cut out his mother … Willie is in. This crazy tale will include a Santa Fight, Santa-Con, and one distinctive ringtone to pull off the heist.

Sigh. This movie tries to have an Ocean’s Eleven heist on a 3 man budget (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). It does a great job of telling Willie’s back story through his and his mother’s eyes. You will see how he became the man he is today. But the jokes fall flat. Also, the movie relies more on shock and disgust to appeal to the audience … instead of real humor. It is not a far cry from the first, but less a cult classic and more of a money grab. If you are a fan of the first, see it matinee (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). Otherwise, wait for RedBox.
