I’m not a fan of Will Ferrell but I was pleasantly surprised with DADDY’S HOME. The pairing of Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg worked well and, although the funniest scenes are all in the trailers, the way the story ties them all together is quite engaging. The message is a good one relevant for those of us men who feel inferior to the macho men who have lots of money and handyman skills. While the humour is pretty coarse at times, most of it is situational and quite funny. It’s not a great movie — it needs to have a lot more depth for that. But it is certainly watchable.
