When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
After finally becoming friends at the end of the first film, Brad Whittaker (Will Ferrell) and Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) have a co-dad system where their two children, Megan (Scarlett Estevez) and Dylan (Owen Vaccaro), take turns at each father's house. Dusty has also remarried, this time to Karen (Alessandra Ambrosio), a writer, and is stepdad to Adrianna (Didi Costine), Karen's daughter. Brad and his wife, Sara (Linda Cardellini), along with Dusty and Karen, attend a school play for Megan, where she announces to the whole audience that she doesn't like the fact that she has to go back and forth to different houses all the time. Back at the house, after the play, Brad and Dusty decide to do away with having two separate Christmases and instead do one "together Christmas". Dusty, however, finds out his tough fighter pilot/astronaut father Kurt (Mel Gibson) is coming for Christmas..
When Adrianna fires the shotgun, she holds it with the stock under her arm instead of resting against her shoulder. Firing it this way would cause severe injury. See more »
[to Dusty; referring to Brad]
His total lack of masculinity, I mean his weak chin and soft underbelly bothers you not a bit?

You know, I'm just getting the feeling maybe you guys would like some privacy.

If you don't like Will Ferrell just don't watch this movie and stop whining about it
Why the haters would even start watching this movie is a mystery to me. If you don't like Will Ferrell then just don't watch this movie because it is the same humor as in all the other movies he's been in. I love Will Ferrell and his stupid humor with his nerdy face, so to me this is a good movie. I thought it was even better then the first one. This time John Lidgow is also in the cast and that's another comedian that makes me laugh all the time. They couldn't have found a better guy to play the father of Will Ferrell. Mel Gibson as the father of Mark Whalberg was also a good match. The story might be a bit dorky but I didn't expect anything else. It's all about the silly humor, and if you're not into that, just skip this movie instead of wasting your time twice by watching it and writing a bad review about it. If you do love that kind of humor I'm sure you will have a couple of good laughs.
