Daddy's Home

Family is worth fightlng for.


Daddy's Home
Despite the generally poor reviews, this film did a decent job at the box office in the USA. A mild-mannered radio executive strives to become the best stepdad to his wife's two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids. Expect lots of physical humour.

96 minutes.
Parental Guidance 7-9 (Language).
Comedy.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Michael O'Sullivan quote iconFerrell's crazy like a fool, but he's no daddy cool.

Cape Times
Jon Frosch quote iconPredictable daddy rivalry.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconCertain to draw the ire of many a highbrow critic, Daddy's Home isn't anywhere close to being a perfect comedy that will go down in the annals of notable Hollywood offerings. But it has enough laughs, big and small, to earn a slight recommendation.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconWill Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have proven comedic chemistry, but Daddy's Home suffers from a dearth of genuinely funny ideas - and lacks enough guts or imagination to explore the satirical possibilities of its premise.
