Film This Weekend: Daddy’s Home
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
It’s Christmas Week and what better way to spend some good family time than a trip to the cinemas? Two big releases this weekend – the Chris Hemsworth starrer “In the Heart of The Sea” and a Mark Whalberg - Will Ferrell laughathon, “Daddy’s Home”. And, both are fine examples of a holiday movie, just in different ways.
Gear up for some post Star Wars week laughs with “Daddy’s Home”.
Mark Whalberg and Will Ferrell are back to sharing screen space after the success of “The Other Guys” and this time they are competing against each other. Will Ferrel stars as the mild radio executive Brad Whittaker who is striving to win over the favor of his two step kids. However, Brad is up for a serious showdown when Dusty Mayron (Mark Whalberg), the carefree real dad shows up and diverts the kids’ attentions.
The Sean Anders movie guarantees great comic timing and some much needed laughs for the Holiday Season. Though, some of the humor tends to fall flat at times, it’s the performance by the two actors that ties up the loose ends. The PG-13 rating also ensures that it’s a great pick as a family entertainer. This might re-create the great chemistry we saw in the cop comedy The Other Guys, but it does get close.
Take your pick from a fun comedy and a heady adventure this weekend at the movies and have a great post-Holiday bonding time!
