That it isn't entirely dreadful is testament to the ease with which the two leads are able to make even the most predictable of jokes set-ups and executions seem somewhat humorous.

Daddy's Home is unnecessary and there's barely any comedy to sustain its watch-ability. The film is all over the place and in the end, of course, decides to have a happy ending that just doesn't seem to fit.

There are moments around the halfway point where the gags lose steam, but the satisfying mishmash of broad and dry humor does the trick more often than not.

The most hilarious character in the film though isn't played by Will Ferrell or Mark Wahlberg, but Hannibal Buress' repair-man that freeloads off the family, interrupting every conversation at the most inopportune time with the most random dialogue

The dadzillas put you to sleep with their cliched humour as they make desperate attempts to win over their children.
November 5, 2017
Genuine heart and sweet sentiments tend to get lost on more than a few occasions strictly so that chicanery can occur.
October 26, 2017
Ground-breaking, this isn't: it's out-and-out commercial comedy. But it's well acted, undemanding and delivers a decent supply of laughs in a refreshingly brief running time.

Daddy's Home is not entertaining. It's a lazily executed painful waste of talented performers.

Watching the kids take second place to a cage match featuring two immature gorillas grows more tiresome by the minute.
August 16, 2016
It's Ferrell and Wahlberg who keep this engine revving like it does, a statement that shouldn't come as a shock for all of those who watched the pair's 2010 hit The Other Guys.
August 4, 2016
Daddy's Home is the white bread of family comedies, stuffed with everything you've seen before.
July 25, 2016
A chocolates-out, phone-off binge of Ted, Old School and The Other Guys will give you more satisfaction.

All in all, when the kids are disappointed that "Star Wars" is sold out, you can have a little fun with them here
May 24, 2016
You wait for a hint of Ferrell wickedness or a sign of potent Wahlberg meanness to really zing us, but get a high-school comedy which has been neutered to a harmless, toothless PG13 rating.
May 16, 2016
Unfortunately, it's a lot of family dysfunction to wade through for a meagre pay-off.
April 15, 2016
Begins with an interesting premise but does not pack in enough satire into its contrived and predictable screenplay.
April 9, 2016
The closest we've come to a Will Ferrell Greatest Hits movie - not at all a bad thing.
April 6, 2016
Aside from a bit of mild toilet humour, Daddy's Home is a traditional Hollywood seasonal comedy in the mould of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, and Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
March 31, 2016
The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg return to the big screen together in a film that ends up offering very little comedic relief or originality in Sean Anders' painfully formulaic comedy, Daddy's Home.

It's symptomatic of the production's limpness that the movie was shot, for tax-credit reasons, in New Orleans, yet the locations have been scrubbed to a funk-free suburban anonymity.
