Movie Reviews: Daddy's Home + Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies + 18 others

Daddy’s Home (2015)
A weak man is a stepfather to two horrible children. His wife looks 20. There is no seriousness of purpose. Will Ferrell, Thomas Haden Church and Bobby Cannavale star. The mushy man (Ferrell) meets his wife’s ex (Mark Wahlberg) who is a jack the lad. The kids might like their stepdad but their father wants to stop them continuing to do so.

All collected calm vanishes as the ex shows up and AC/DC plays whenever he shows up. A violent and terrible reckoning is imminent as their game of one-upmanship rages. Why does the wife act like she has no say in her home and her children’s lives? There is a dog and this was not funny. The stepfather trashes the house with a motorbike and Wahlberg gets his shirt off.

There is no warm dependability. The ex can sing. How did the car get fixed after the motorbike but it? The stepfather can’t do house repair. This was sexist and soporific.

Best Lines:
“The first drawing where I’m not dead already.”

“Homeless man poop on my head.”

“Trust falls.”

“Crying like a little bitch.”

“Get a shirt on.”

“Why do you want this deadbeat in your home?”

“Who did she met? Me?”

“I eventually loved her.”

“You and I will fight in the parking lot.”

“I’m in the wall!”

“Honour the cold one.”

“Found him this morning living in a storm drain.”

“Number 3 smooth jazz station.”

“In a ball of fire the size of 4 city blocks.”
