Perhaps we’re just in a good mood or perhaps it’s our drastically diminished expectations of Will Ferrell comedies, but this trailer for Daddy’s Home made us smile (not laugh) a couple of times. We’re ashamed to admit it, particularly because a lot of the trailer – humour and atmosphere, not plot – reminds us of Get Hard, a film that nobody needs to ever watch. It’s impossible to tell whether Ferrell genuinely believes he’s working on something great, but we’re guessing he’s more interested in exploiting how shit we all are by continuously seeing his crappy movies. For further reference regarding this troubling phenomenon, see Adam Sandler.
“A mild-mannered radio executive struggles to become a good stepfather to his wife’s two children, but complications arise when their father arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.”
Daddy’s Home stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, Hannibal Buress and Paul Scheer and is set for release in December, 2015.
