Honestly, I laughed my ass off. Although it tried too hard to be like Step Brothers (it can't compete due to the PG-13 rating) and the ending was too soft in comparison with the brutal comedy of what came before, it was a good movie and there is an excellent comedic duo in Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Also, can we just give Will Ferrell an Oscar already? The man is a genius.
Disregarding a bizarre fertility clinic subplot that doesn't gel with the rest of the movie, and the fact that this is very likely the most televisual film I've ever seen, "Daddy's Home" proves a successful variation on a familiar Will Ferrel vehicle (see also: "Kicking and Screaming") in which his 'aw, shucks,' George W. Bush-esque persona is channelled into a neurotic suburban dad and modest laughter ensues.
