It's more deserving of 2 1/2 stars but it was a lot better than I expected. Pretty funny in some parts and not as dumb as most of Will Ferrell's movies (although I do like him). Mark Wahlberg was pretty funny as well and there were a few sentimental moments.

Great. The combination of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg again after The Other Guys makes the movie better.

This movie was not funny, just plain stupid....a waste of time.

An okay film, there were a lot fewer laughs than expected. It ended well, but the journey there isn't that great. Most of the cast was okay, though Thomas Hayden Church as Will Ferrell's boss just came off as creepy and weird. Though the box calls it a "family film", I wouldn't deem this so. Maybe for teenagers, but some of the main plot points aren't for kids. The biggest thing I kept noticing was how old Will Ferrell looks.

I went into this movie not expecting much and came out having my expectations met. This movie feels like all of the other filler comedy movies that are coming out now, just something people are hoping to make a quick dollar on. It had some moments that were funny, enough to keep me awake through the entire thing. But it also had a bunch of cringe moments that made me wish that I had fallen asleep. Overall this movie fills its role as a dumb humor comedy movie pretty well, and the actors were well suited for their roles. 2/5 Stars.

The movie Daddy's Home wasn't that bad. It had a lot of bad words and bad things in it but I still laughed at some parts in the movie. This movie would be for ages 17 and over because of the bad things in it. If I would rate this movie out of 10 I would give it 4. The ending of the movie was trying to say that maybe there is a sequel, when the same thing that he did to his ex-wife's husband is going to happen to him. The movie idea was good, but it could've been acted better than that.

One of the single dumbest films I've ever seen. Waste of time.

I love Mark Wahlberg in comedy mode. Him and Will are the best pairing ever...hilarious!!

This movie is a waste of time : What were they trying to do ? The wife has two kids : they are both very disrespectful of their step-father , the mother does not even try to correct the kids . Later arrived the former husband who is trying to get back his family ..

After a number of mishaps the situation comes to the point that the woman is mistreating her new husband : How could he be like that with his kids ???? ,they are not his kids. his trying to buy their love with presents ......... etc , I will give one out of ten stars . Farrell deserves what he is getting for allowing others (the wife , the first husband and the two disrespectful kids ) to treat him like that . He should have walk out of this relationship in the very first opportunity >>> Of course then we would not have a movie . A WASTE OF THE TALENTS OF THE ACTORS.
