In Daddy’s Home, it’s a “good old-fashioned dad-off,” as Wahlberg comes to town and meets his kids’ stepdad (Will Ferrell) for the first time. The lines get drawn quickly: Ferrell wears a button-down; Wahlberg wears a leather jacket. Wahlberg rides a motorcycle; Ferrell nearly kills himself trying to ride it.
But they have one thing in common: They both really, really want to be the kids’ favorite—and will go to Jackass-level extremes to win them over. Sean Anders, who directed the hijinx-filled comedies Horrible Bosses 2 and Sex Drive, will direct the movie along with John Morris. To Linda Cardellini, who plays the kids’ mother, all we can say is good luck.
