That's one problematic comedy.
December 29, 2015
While sweet and occasionally waggish, it's too predictable to transcend mindless entertainment.
December 29, 2015
Surprisingly sweet and sneakily hilarious, Daddy's Home will pleasantly surprise you when it lets loose.
December 25, 2015
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg go together like candy and whiskey.
December 25, 2015
A generic comedy as lazy and aggravating as its title.
December 25, 2015
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.
December 25, 2015
It is best avoided unless a movie that has the attitude and mind-set of a schoolyard bully happens to be your thing.
December 24, 2015
"Daddy's Home" is a movie just smart enough about being dumb.
December 24, 2015
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."
December 24, 2015
There are a few laughs here and there.
December 24, 2015
Such a hit-and-miss mess that it makes the wild-and-crazy-to-the-point-of-sometimes-flailing tenor of "Anchorman" and other such Ferrell vehicles feel like finely-tuned Logitech vehicles.
December 24, 2015
The problem with "Daddy's Home" is that it takes a nasty premise, best suited to a farce or a harsh satire, and tries to make a heartwarming comedy out of it. This not only doesn't work, it can't work. It's not possible.
December 24, 2015
Like other comedies co-written and/or directed by Sean Anders, it's fitfully amusing and, given that quality, a little too sure of itself.
December 24, 2015
The denouement ... is actually quite charming and relatively hilarious, but the 90 minutes of buildup is a bit of a slog.
December 23, 2015
"Daddy's Home" is a movie with a one-joke premise: Will Ferrell, he's a pincushion of punishment. Make him screech. Watch him squirm.
December 23, 2015
Consider it a predictable movie with flashes of unpredictability.
December 23, 2015
First and foremost a humiliation comedy of the most cringe-inducing variety. But in its vulgar, antic way, it also raises questions about modern manhood ...
December 23, 2015
Anders had many opportunities to pit the dads against each other directly, but trades in the cheesy, expected route for devious mind games ...
December 23, 2015
The world needs great Will Ferrell comedies. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them.
December 22, 2015
An oddly limited film.
