Daddy's Home 2
moderate bad language, innuendo
Brad and Dusty have set their differences aside, but the unexpected arrival of their own fathers poses a new problem and throws their peaceful family Christmas into jeopardy.
After coming to blows in Daddy’s Home, Brad and Dusty have managed to put their troubles behind them and begin planning a family Christmas with Sara and the kids. But, just when it seems that a peaceful festive break is on the cards, Dusty’s dad Kurt (Mel Gibson) calls out of the blue and invites himself over for the holidays.
Much like his son, Kurt cuts an imposing, macho-man figure, which Brad finds intimidating. And, to add insult to injury, Brad’s gentle and overly-affectionate dad follows suit and also invites himself to the party. Cue a clash of personalities with disaster written all over it.
Now, with four dads in tow and the kids getting over-hyped for Christmas, the tension begins to rise and it looks like Brad and Dusty might be back to square one. Can they make it out of the holiday season alive?
Daddy’s Home 2 is written and directed by Sean Anders, who has seen previous success with comedies including Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) and We’re the Millers (2013).
Will Ferrell (Holmes and Watson) and Mark Wahlberg (Deepwater Horizon) reprise their roles as the feuding dads, while Hollywood legends John Lithgow (Interstellar) and Mel Gibson (The Professor and the Madman) play their fathers.
