Mark Wahlberg recently apologized to God for appearing in Boogie Nights. Satan’s currently warming up a tier in hell for him and the funky bunch of willing participants in this crime against cinema. As in the first installment, there’s a superbly executed avalanche gag, this one involving a snow-blower consuming a strand of perimeter Christmas lights. At best, it has the same effect as a shot a Febreeze would on a garbage scow. Wahlberg taps into his inner-Bowery Boy to play Leo Gorcey to Ferrell’s Huntz Hall, but who thought it was a good idea to typecast Tinsel Town’s favorite pardoned Jew-hater (Mel Gibson) in the role of a womanizing homophobe? As Wahlberg’s dad, Mel is supposed to play a former astronaut while his peacoat and duffle bag (and vocabulary) bring to mind a longshoreman. The fact that an abusive schmuck like Gibson is still able to find work in A-list productions proves there’s hope out there for Harvey Weinstein. 2017.
