Daddy's Home 2 product reviews

Get ready for the Daddy of all family comedies!

When it comes to raising their kids, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Farrell) finally have this co-parenting thing down. That is, until Dusty's macho dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad's sweet-natured father (John Lithgow) come to town, throwing the whole family into complete chaos.

As old rivalries create new problems, Dusty and brad's partnership is put to the ultimate test in this 'hilarious and heartwarming' comedy that gives new meaning to the term 'blended family'.

Five minutes into the movie my husband declared that he could tell he was going to 'hate the movie' - but, by the end of the film I noted, not only had he not picked up his tablet, but I had heard him snicker more than once and to top it off he had a big grin on his face throughout the movie. I do agree it is a little silly - but at the same time it is just so good that you can't help but laugh and fall in love with the movie. My husband did say as the credits rolled up that it was not as bad as he was expecting.

The casting is pure gold! It can not be faulted! Not only that it is actually believable. Mel Gibson definitely steals all of the scenes with his facials or his witty commentary or the way he delivers his lines - there was not one scene that I laughed at that was not because of him directly or indirectly. I can not see anyone else playing him. The only character I had a small question mark against would be John Cena, but then I guess besides the Rock there was no one really suited to play the role. You could feel the love/awkwardness and each actor played their part beautifully. I love how everyone seems to be seeking someones approval and everyone is just so unsure of themselves at some point. Then add kids into the mix and you have a beautiful chaos.

Following along from the first movie Dusty and Brad have got the co-parenting down packed. The kids have adapted well and life is going smoothly. But when you add their boys father's into the mix and all under the same roof it just gets messy. It doesn't make it any easier that Dusty has major Daddy issues to begin with and then when he is faced trying to act manly for his father but dealing with the very soft and fragile Brad it really is quite funny. I am glad it was done very tastefully and not toilet humour was involved. I found myself gasping, covering my eyes, face palming more than once and a lot of laughter -which I really was not expecting, I find it is very rare lately to find a comedy which is actually funny.

You can tell that no expense has been spared making the movie and it has the feeling of a big budget, especially when you add the the names associated with the film. It has a very feel good feel to it and you just get lost in the whole thing. The singing at the end was agonizing to watch and I only wish that Mark had sang for a little longer. I want to say so much more about my favourite scene but I do not want to spoil anything for you but I can say anyone who watches this movie would not be sorry as it really is that good. I don't think it would have the same impact the second time around but I am willing to give it a go in a couple of months.
