That's one problematic comedy.
While sweet and occasionally waggish, it's too predictable to transcend mindless entertainment.
Surprisingly sweet and sneakily hilarious, Daddy's Home will pleasantly surprise you when it lets loose.
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg go together like candy and whiskey.
A generic comedy as lazy and aggravating as its title.
Ferrell is a master at playing well intentioned but bumbling bozos, and he gives "Daddy's Home" a warm heart it wouldn't otherwise possess.
It is best avoided unless a movie that has the attitude and mind-set of a schoolyard bully happens to be your thing.
"Daddy's Home" is a movie just smart enough about being dumb.
If you're looking for a film that's just about guaranteed to make you feel good, you'd be well advised to drop by "Daddy's Home."
