Stepfather Brad Whitaker is hoping for his stepchildren to love him and treat him like a dad. All is going well until the biological father, Dusty Mayron, shows up, then everything takes a toll. His stepchildren start putting him second and their father first, and now Dusty will have to learn that being a good dad is about pains and struggles. Brad will also experience once again what it's like to be a stepdad.
When Dusty is giving instructions to his son Dylan after Brad has hit the powerlines, he tells him to place two fingers just below the ear to check for a pulse. The proper location to check for a pulse is on the carotid artery, which has one branch located on on the neck, on either side of the trachea, approximately one inch below the jaw. See more »
Here's a question for you. What do kids need more, a father or a dad? What's the difference? The way I see it, darn near anyone can be a father...

... but not everyone has the patience or the devotion to be a dad. As for me, I've always wanted to be a dad. Let me tell you, I love it! Yeah!
And I love my Ford Flex. It treats me to a smooth ride, and you know what? It didn't break the bank. Room enough for the whole family.

I'm hesitating between 2 or 3/10. How can a movie be so bad? This is not funny, not at all a comedy. All the so called funny scenes are in the trailer but they look better in the trailer that when they happen in the movie. The first 'funny' scene starts at 50 minutes into the film. Then you have to wait another 10 minutes for another so called joke. There are perhaps 4 jokes like this in the entire movie. The dialogue has no humor. We wait hoping the dialogue will get funny or the film pace is going to kick in gear, but nothing happens. Not a family film either because of the language.
There are both good and poor Ferrell films, but this picture is different. It feels lifeless, as opposed to what the trailer lets us believe.
