DADDY’S HOME ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by Sean Anders. Star­ring Will Fer­rell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini

Fer­rell is a gen­tle-hearted step­fa­ther who, as hard as he tries, can never quite win the love of his part­ner’s kids. One day he hears that the chil­dren’s birth father is com­ing to stay. He turns out to be the leather-jack­eted, ma­nip­u­la­tive Mr Wahlberg. If you were as­sem­bling a film fes­ti­val of movies whose best gags were all in the trailer then you could do worse than open with Daddy’s Home. Mind you, the trailer is funny. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 96 min
