The similarities between Daddy’s Home 2 and last week’s release, "A Bad Moms Christmas," are striking. Not only are the two films sequels to successful first installments but they follow the similar template of bringing back the most popular elements of the first movie, stirring veteran actors into the mix, and finishing everything off with a big kumbaya moment.
This movie is perfect! Whole family really loved this (a rare phenomenon with teenagers). Had tears in my eyes laughing so hard. Perfect for Christmas-up there now with National Lampoons for us really. Loved the first movie but,for the first time, can say this one topped the first. The entire cast was honestly just perfect together-watched more then once easily. Need way more fun movies like this one.
Will farell and mark walberg always perfectly fit together in comedy movies and I totally enjoyed this one. daddy's home 1 was already funny, but with their own dads it's even more funny. Totally underreated. It's a 10 out of 10.
Daddy’s Home 2 wants points for exploring the ever-expanding family tree in a Christmas comedy, but it only barely succeeds. Lithgow’s delightful grandpa offers a welcome diversion from the madness, but those moments are as fleeting as the plate of cookies left out for Santa on Christmas Eve.
I really can't believe the low critic score. I know the movie isn't for anyone, but it's hilarious. I think all the actors work really well with eachother and it's just a funny and in a good way lame movie. Just sit back, don't expect anything and enjoy it. Great movie.
I liked the first movie a lot, and this one is good too, but just not as funny and exciting. The actors in my opinion were good choices, each person casted fit the character they were acting as. The story itself was pretty cliché, but it does have some twists, but not enough. It felt like a bunch of other Christmas movies put into one. I think the ending was interesting too. A lot of the jokes were funny also, but at times some weren’t funny. I recommend this movie overall.
The chemistry between Wahlberg and Ferrell is still strong. The material is just weaker this time around. Lithgow and Gibson fit in nicely, but why do these guys have wives again? They barely do anything in the movie and the whole setup feels like a thinly veiled **** relationship anyway. Why not just go for it? Get all progressive in the lowest common denominator comedy scene. Oh right, it would miss out on all those **** jokes. It's pretty funny for the same reasons the first movie was. The humorous back and forth has been upped from a twosome to a foursome. The more sensitive characters are still the butt of the joke the majority of the time, but Daddy's Home 2 doesn't miss out on taking some jabs at the more toxic side of masculinity. The comedy is often hindered though by some scenes of bad taste and moments more disturbing than risqué. An emotionally heavy bit at an improv comedy bar and the entire finale at the mall are really uncomfortable to watch. Daddy's Home 2 can still provide a modicum of entertainment thanks to it's simple, but usually effective brand of please all comers humor. There's no escaping that the third outing of the Ferrell and Wahlberg duo is more of a mixed bag than The Other Guys and the first Daddy's Home, but it's still going to be a suitable holiday rental for most families out there. Plus seeing Wahlberg and Gibson kiss is nothing less than one of the greatest moments in cinema history. "Pancakes, ****
When I think of Daddy's Home 2, I think of a string of words that comes to my mind in order to describe the movie: useless, unfunny, boring, inane, absurd, pointless, overly dramatic, poorly paced, and useless. There are one or two chuckles in this comedy, and both of them were from Mel Gibson's performance. This is a sequel and Christmas movie you can skip.
Ok ok I thought this was appropriate for a 10 year old. But I guess not. It was inappropriate and made me gasp in horror. The jokes aren't funny, the entire movie is a cringe fest. But, if you like horrible movies, by all means, check it out.
