Did You Know?

Trivia

Upcoming Australian director/writer/actor Matthew St. Vincent had the rating for this film changed from PG to M15+, due to concerns for his Queen's son who he did not want exposed to some of the language and crude humor in this film. Ironically, St. Vincent's future films were quite heavy on everything he did not want his Queen's son to be exposed to. See more »

Goofs

When Brad starts the Indian motorcycle, his left hand is encircling the left grip, and his right hand is pulling back from the instrument cluster near the tank. The start switch is on the right handlebar, above the throttle grip, and would be depressed by the right thumb to start . It is obvious that the sound of the bike starting is just a sound effect.

Way better than I expected!
8 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a sensitive stepfather who is disliked by his two stepchildren, despite trying super hard to win the kids' hearts. One day, the biological father shows up at the doorstep, and a big oneupmanship ensues.

"Daddy's Home" shows two likable fathers by they are so different from each other. Their competition is full on, the jokes are very funny but does not feel silly at all. The best thing is that Mark Wahlberg's character is super attractive and charming in almost every way. He says the right thing all the time, he can criticise and manipulate the other father unreasonably and yet you would find yourself agreeing with his half twisted logic.

"Daddy's Home" is way better than I expected and I really enjoyed watching it.
