Daddy’s Home 2 (2017)

This year has been a great movie year, so many unexpected highs and very few legitimately crushing lows (despite what the unnecessarily hate-filled comment sections of many places say). So good a year in fact, that the bad films of 2017 have made an extra effort to be bad, films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Fifty Shades Darker and the magnum opus of woeful The Emoji Movie. Well, now we can add another name to the pile in this comedy sequel to the unmemorable 2015 hit Daddy’s Home.

Daddy’s Home 2, like this year’s practically as bad A Bad Moms Christmas, adds more parents to the fray but subtracts all of the laughter. To put it in perspective, the best gag in this cruelly unfunny little film is about a thermostat, which is revealing of the level we are on here. The concept is achingly familiar, as the

Linda Cardellini joins Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali in Green Book

Linda Cardellini (Avengers: Age of Ultron) has signed on to star opposite Viggo Mortensen (A History of Violence) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) in Green Book, which is being directed by Peter Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber To) from a script he’s written with Nick Vallenlonga and Brian Currie.

Based on a true story, Green Book is set in 1962 and follows Tony Lip – the real life father of Vallenlonga – who was one of the best bouncers in New York City. In need of work after his nightclub, the Copacabana, shuts down, he takes a gig chauffeuring a highly educated piano-playing prodigy Dr. Don Shirley who wants Lip to go on tour with him in the Deep South. While the two clash at first, a bond eventually grows as they travel deeper into the racially charged region.

“To have Viggo, Mahershala and Linda in my movie is a blessing and an embarrassment of riches,

Daphne and Velma Are Getting a Live-Action Scooby-Doo Spin-Off
The Scooby gang, or at least some of the Scooby gang, are getting back into action next year. Warner Bros. has announced that a live-action Scooby-Doo spin-off is set to be released in 2018. Daphne and Velma will serve as an origin story for the two female members of Scooby-Doo, with Warner Bros.' digital content studio Blue Ribbon teaming with Blonde Girl Productions for the movie. Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale, who head up Blonde Girl Productions, had this to say in a statement about Daphne and Velma.

"Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective, and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story. It's so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love."

Daddy’s Home 2 movie review: the father away, the better

MaryAnn’s quick take… Goes well beyond the typical mindless array of slapstick and humiliation to reach disgusting new depths of coarseness. Not just appalling, but actually dangerous. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated Daddy’s Home; this one looked worse

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I was going to skip Daddy’s Home 2. The first one was appalling, and did not demand a sequel, and this one looked worse. Life is too short, even for a film critic, to give in and see every idiotic movie. But then a critic friend asked me to attend a press screening with her — you know, as moral support — so I did. As my self-sacrificing good deed for the day. And I’m actually glad I ended up seeing the movie after all. Not because it’s good: dear god in heaven, no.

Hawkeye Is Ready to Rock in Latest Look at Avengers 4

Hawkeye Is Ready to Rock in Latest Look at Avengers 4
As Avengers 4 continues shooting, we haven't seen much from the set since production began back in mid-August. Given the ultra-secretive nature of this sequel, which brings the entire McU to a close as we know it, that's not terribly surprising. Thankfully, Jeremy Renner shared a photo of himself getting ready for a day of action on the set as Hawkeye. While we don't get to see his costume, or any details from the set, at least Hawkeye fans know he's survived, up until this point of the McU, but that could obviously change every day, especially given the massive stakes of this movie.

Back in August, shortly after filming began on Avengers 4, the actor shared a new Hawkeye photo that lead to speculation that his family, which we first saw in Avengers: Age of Ultron, may have been killed. We learned in Ultron that Hawkeye, a.k.a. Clint Barton,

Review: Daddy’s Home 2

This is the Pure Movies review of Daddy's Home 2, directed by Sean Anders and stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow and Mel Gibson. Family dynamics around the festive period are ripe for the comedy picking. Everyone can relate to the age-old saying “you can’t choose your family” when faced with spending the requisite time with them. Indeed, even the most cynical of us will cherish at least one memorable moment – event if it’s at the expense of a loved one. The thought of comedy duo Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg - who had a natural flow in The Good Guys – returning as Brad and Dusty respectively for a second Daddy’s Home instalment, and trying to create the ‘perfect’ Christmas does prick the interest. Such enormous comedy potential, considering all was at peace with dad and stepdad at the end of the

Daddy's Home 2 review

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are joined by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson for Daddy's Home 2. Here's our review...

Will Ferrell’s comedy oeuvre has taken us on a strange journey. With as many hits as misses on his resume over the years, he was still once thought of as a dependable presence in otherwise absurd movies. He thrived at a time when over-long, improvised Apatow-era comedies were king, but his star has waned somewhat since that style fell out of favour.

Which brings us to 2015’s Daddy’s Home, which paired Ferrell with reliable scene partner Mark Wahlberg to create a disappointing family comedy that left very little impression after it was done. But it made enough money at the time to warrant a sequel in the studio’s eyes, so here we are.

Daddy’s Home 2 is not worse than the first film, but it’s still not very good.

‘Daddy’s Home 2′ Review

Stars: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson, Linda Cardellini | Written by Sean Anders, John Morris | Directed by Sean Anders

There’s a scene at the end of Daddy’s Home 2, Sean Anders’ sequel to his mediocre 2015 hit, which has all the hallmarks of a classic Christmas movie climax: the characters, previously at odds, coming together for a joyous singalong. Except the song they choose is Feed the World. The Band Aid anthem – once a call for the Western world to mobilise to relieve the vast suffering in Africa – is malignly appropriated as a campy joke, hollered against a backdrop of a shamelessly product-placed cinema chain handing out free snacks to gorging Americans. It’s not even the worst scene in the film, but it does epitomise a so-called comedy which is thoughtless on multiple levels, and frequently tasteless.

Second Opinion – Daddy’s Home 2 (2017)

Daddy’s Home 2, 2017.

Directed by Sean Anders

Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, Linda Cardellini, Alessandra Ambrosio and John Cena

Synopsis:

Since we last saw them in Daddy’s Home, warring dads Dusty and Brad have learned to live with being co-parents and are unlikely – but best – buddies. When they decide the entire family should spend Christmas under one roof – and that includes their respective fathers – the question is which roof. Until one of the grandfathers books a log cabin big enough for all of them ……

‘Tis the season for a sequel. Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Enough of the approaching seasonal jollity. It’s only November. And, on the evidence of Daddy’s Home 2, we’ve had enough of sequels already. Ok, Paddington 2 is, admittedly, a joy, but A Bad Moms Christmas is anything but and Wahlberg and Ferrell’s latest

‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Review: Mel Gibson Proves to Be One Daddy Too Many in Queasy Holiday Comedy
Daddy’s Home 2” isn’t sorry. It doesn’t care about your stupid feelings. Don’t remember what happened at the end of the last movie, or which home belongs to which daddy? Too bad. Don’t want your festive family comedies to star Mel Gibson as a serial womanizer with a flair for violence? Well, “The Man Who Invented Christmas” isn’t out until next week, so you’re shit out of luck. Don’t understand how Will Ferrell could re-team with Mark Wahlberg when a sequel to “Step Brothers” is possibly the only thing that could pull civilization back from the brink? Get in line.

A follow-up to one of Sofia Coppola’s favorite movies of all time, “Daddy’s Home 2” literally ends with its characters snowbound in a multiplex and forced to watch some limp Hollywood garbage because they don’t have anything better to do. In a better world,

Movie Review – Daddy’s Home 2 (2017)

Daddy’s Home 2, 2017.

Directed by Sean Anders.

Starring Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena, Linda Cardellini, Alessandra Ambrosio, Owen Vaccaro, Scarlett Estevez, Didi Costine, and Oscar Wahlberg

Synopsis:

Brad and Dusty must deal with their intrusive fathers during the holidays.

The greatest strength of the Daddy’s Home series continues to be on-the-nose casting. Released in 2015, the first dysfunctional family comedy made use of the excellent comedic Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedic pairing (a duo that were absolutely electric in The Other Guys), so it’s only fitting that director and co-writer Sean Anders (returning for the sequel and also known for Horrible Bosses) have found grandfather components containing that same hysterical chemistry by way of drastically opposing personalities.

Starting with Mel Gibson as Kurt, father to Mark Wahlberg’s Dusty, it’s important to note that he isn’t exactly a carbon copy. Sure,

Daddy’S Home 2 – Review

The holiday movie season is in full swing this weekend with a yuletime-set sequel to a recent raucous comedy…again. Yes, it was barely ten days ago when a really early cinema gift arrived at the multiplex, Bad Moms Christmas. Well there are a couple of differences, this new flick is a follow-up to a 2015 release rather than the more recent, just over a year old Bad Moms. Plus the matriarchs’ antics are a tad more adult-themed, since both films garnered much-deserved “R” ratings for raunch. The new arrival is the more “family friendly” PG-13 (it might be even more wholesome than the first one, since there’s less talk of fertility). However both recent installment deal with the chaos and conflict initiated by the visit of the grandparents (Moms had one grandpop’ while this one doesn’t have a granny’ till the last moments). So, put those shopping lists

Third & Hopefully Final Trailer for Comedy Sequel 'Daddy's Home 2'

"We're back, with more daddies." Paramount has unwrapped one more trailer for comedy sequel Daddy's Home 2, from director Sean Anders. This is hopefully the final trailer for this movie, because I want to move on and forget about it as soon as possible. Daddy's Home 2 brings back stars Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, and Linda Cardellini, and introduces the fathers of the fathers, including John Lithgow and Mel Gibson, with an appearance by John Cena. I don't know who actually wanted a sequel to Daddy's Home, and while I'm sure many will say they did, I don't recall the first movie getting so much acclaim that this was necessary. But that's me, not my kind of funny. It looks like an awful Christmas Vacation wannabe. Here's the third trailer (+ poster) for Sean Anders' sequel Daddy's Home 2, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Daddy's Home 2 here,
