Daddy's Home (2015)
The story of a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best stepdad ever to his wife's two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling, freeloading real father arrives, forcing stepdad to compete for the affection of the kids.
The pairing of these two actors is like two stars colliding! Such chemistry! They play off of each other like they've been doing it their whole lives! This movie is HILARIOUS! From beginning to end, a truly marvelous movie!
I enjoyed this movie very much love Will Ferrell and having Mark Wahlberg in the mix in a dad vs dad comedy not had the chance to see the second movie yet but if you're looking to giggle the night or day away id choice this movie slightly slow on the start up but so picks up
(Flash Review)I know that is a crazy rating for a silly comedy but the jokes were really funny and worked for me as well as exceeding my low expectations. I can totally understand rating this a 4-6/10. For me, compared to the last several dumb comedies I've watched, it actually made me laugh hard. The plot, at its core, was a good carrier for the over the top surprising and comedic scenarios. Onto the plot, which is about a step dad who is newly married to a wife with two elementary age kids and suddenly her ex-husband re-enters their lives with the hopes of winning his family back. Ferrell, who is the new husband, plays a kind-hearted, emotional and gentle man while the ex is Wahlberg who is of course strong, brash and intimidating. The two men joust back and forth trying to prove they are the better father figure with their varying personalities and skills. Cue escalating and sensational testosterone battles. Who will end up winning the family? Will the two learn any moral lessons during their many fiascos? Ferrell is on his game as Wahlberg plays off of him well; often shirtless. In fact, there was one scene where the two are talking and Wahlberg is constantly doing push-ups or pull ups. Pretty random and oddly amusing. A good reason to drag a female guest along to the movie. Ha. Above average for this genre.
A great family subject movie, some silly yet interesting, typical comedy happy ending. *What do I think? I am super annoyed with irresponsible parents. Giving a birth is just a small journey, even pregnancy is just 40 weeks, not to speak of the travel time of a man's sperm. Yet raising a child is a life journey, it is not easy to be a responsible parent, let alone a stepdad. But the stepdad character works very hard to gain his trust with his stepchildren and treats them like his own, I really fond of him!*What I learned? Learned a word oriental from this movie, it is politically incorrect to use this word, and the admonition has the force of law under federal and New York State documents. No wonder I never heard this word before.
