Storyline

It's the most wonderful time of the year again, and the not-in-the-slightest reformed safe-cracker Willie Soke is breathing the air of freedom once more, failing miserably to keep himself afloat thirteen whole years after his last achievements. Still addicted to alcohol and at the end of his tether, Soke will reluctantly accept his former sidekick Marcus' truce and his daring plan for another Yuletide caper--this time targeting a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. However, as Willie slips back into his Santa's red suit again, much to his disappointment, he will discover that another partner in crime is also eager to join in the heist: his desperate for cash estranged mother, Sunny. Can Willie work around his mummy issues, especially now that the closest thing to family, Thurman Merman, comes to town for a visit? Written by Nick Riganas

For me both thumbs up
22 December 2016 | by afraheemyaqoobSee all my reviews

I never ever tried to write movie review but for this movie I made exception.As for me it was hilarious the jokes the acting all original.people have to judge the movie by the current age and content standard we are watching over the cinema or TV.Now days its very difficult to find such a movie where you will laugh like a kid. If you want to watch this movie watch it like a dumb kid not like a rocket scientist.Don't behave like over smart ass critics looking into so much deep for something which isn't there and then blame it on the movie.This movie is for fun for few good laughs not intent to win The Oscar.Like a meal at the food truck as compare to fine five star restaurant.So for me I will rate the movie 8 out of 10 .Have fun guys.
