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

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.

Great movie
22 November 2019 | by pinkmnkySee all my reviews

This is a great movie. All the actors in the movie seemed to really mesh well with each other and played off of one another. I spent the majority of the movie laughing and waiting to see what would happen next. When I say laughing I mean laughing till I had tears. This is a great holiday movie and can put anyone in a great mood.
