Daddy’s Home 2 Review

In less time than it took for Goldberg to beat Brock Lesnar at last year’s Survivor Series, I realized mere seconds into watching Daddy’s Home 2 that the latest installment of Hollywood’s Department of Comedy was a mistake. I saw Daddy’s Home two years ago and that movie was bad in its own right but it made $242 million dollars so they just had to make another one….

In Daddy’s Home 2, Brad and Dusty (Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg) are back and it’s Christmas time meaning that both of them must deal with their fathers (John Lithgow & Mel Gibson) during the holidays. That is where the plot stops and the unfunny begins. This movie feels like a failed Saturday Night Live skit that went on for an hour and 40 minutes…so you know this is bad.

Will Farrell is just not funny anymore and I honestly feel like I may have overestimated his laugh factor years ago. The days of a functionally retarded non-human shtick being funny are long over. All of the humor in the film is based on people getting hurt. If someone isn’t taking a ball to the face then you probably aren’t laughing because the written/improv comedy just doesn’t hit. Not only is the comedy largely a miss but the film has a knack for taking a joke that wasn’t funny, to begin with, and running into the ground with the hopes that you will laugh eventually (spoiler: You Don’t). The only bearable part of this film are the children and they made have had a better film focusing on them instead of Will Farrell’s 50-year-old, 5-year-old act. Not even Big Match John Cena could save this mess.

Daddy’s Home 2 is perfectly described using the character of Didi Costine in the film. Things are happening in front of you but the YouTube video on your phone is much more entertaining…and you don’t even like most the people in the film as well. You are just kind of wondering why you are even here to begin with.
