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..

[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.

It's a Will Ferrell movie. A sequel, at that. If you can't figure out it's likely going to be a goofy cornball comedy before watching it, you probably shouldn't be writing reviews. No one should expect it to be Masterpiece Theater anymore than we did National Lampoon movies back in the day. It's good for a funny enough romp, it feels good, it's about family and Christmas and relationships and modern life. It's not a 10, and everyone should be smart enough to not expect that, but it's alright. Light-hearted entertainment.
