When Daddy’s Home was released in 2015, we rented it but I had lower expectations. Sure, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have a history of being good together but could they really bring that to this kind of movie? The answer was, without a doubt, yes! I laughed till I cried.
Last month, amid all of the holiday craziness, I managed to sneak in to see Daddy’s Home 2. While I’ll publish a review next month after watching it again, I’ve got to say that this sequel was worth watching and will definitely be added to my yearly Christmas movie list.
The story is pretty straightforward – Dusty and Brad continue working on their co-parenting skills and things are going pretty well until Dusty’s father (masterfully played by Mel Gibson) shows up and accuses his son of being a sissy. Meanwhile, Brad’s sweet-natured dad (John Lithgow) also joins the family for the holidays and it doesn’t take long for disaster (and hilarity) to ensue.
The film is available for Digital download on February 6th and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD on February 20. Pick up a copy – you won’t regret it!
