Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell) has always wanted children but unfortnately cannot have them. However, he hits the jackpot when he marries Sara (Linda Cardellini) and becomes Step-Dad to her two children Megan (Scarlett Estevez) and Dylan (Owen Vaccaro). He is the perfect Dad, creating lunches and taking comfort that he is only severely injured in one of Megan’s photos and not already dead. All this changes however, when Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) discovered his ex-Wife has moved on and remarried. He returns the next day to check out the new man in his family’s life and take back his family.
This film was ok, it was funny in places. A lot of it was mostly ridiculous and there was the cheesy perfect ending to the movie. The acting is okay and I didn’t find it overly brilliant. It’s not one to rush and go see but it is a good way to spend a rainy post-Christmas afternoon, especially better than going to a pantomime.
