Storyline

After burying the hatchet in Daddy's Home (2015), the stepfather with a heart of gold, Brad, and the kids' biological dad with the perfect six-pack, Dusty, are now proud co-dads, working in unison to care for Megan and Dylan. This year, with Christmas just around the corner, the once-incompatible parents and their families decide to spend the holidays together; however, things will take a turn for the unexpected when Dusty's alpha-dad, Kurt, and Brad's touchy-feely father, Don, decide to pay a visit. Now--as the merry holidaymakers end up in a snow-capped cabin for a week--it seems that there's no escape from an impending Yuletide disaster unless the two pairs of fathers learn how to coexist and work together for the sake of the kids. Will things work out in the end? Can the four daddies save Christmas? Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

Although it makes for a funny scene, snow throwers CAN'T create a disaster even close to what happens to Brad. The control of both the auger and the forward motion use a manual, NEVER automatic control. And said control must be gripped tightly to function otherwise it will release. This is to prevent the very catastrophe depicted here. See more »

Quotes

Kurt: [to Dusty; referring to Brad] His total lack of masculinity, I mean his weak chin and soft underbelly bothers you not a bit?
Brad: [after camera zooms out, to show him sitting in a chair next to Kurt and Dusty] You know, I'm just getting the feeling maybe you guys would like some privacy.

User Reviews

Cynical and dumb.
13 November 2017 | by theagentman21See all my reviews

A depressingly nihilistic film that would have at least been commendable for its unabashed cruelty - that is, if an out-of-place clichéd 'happy ending' hadn't been tacked on. As such, it only works as an exercise in awkward gags and uncomfortable dramatic beats, hammering the final nails into the coffin of three careers while it's at it. Now, if you're looking for a darkly comic view at a dysfunctional family, you'll find this for the first half of the film. If you want an upbeat, feel-good family comedy, keep your fingers in your ears and your eyes 'wide shut' until the final twenty minutes. If you want a good Christmas film, I suggest you go home and put The Polar Express back in the DVD player.
