SLAP­STICK TO BE A REAL TURKEY SE­QUEL PROVES

Pretoria News Weekend - - FILM -

slap­stick, with most of the gags com­ing at Brad’s ex­pense.

What of the women? One of the daugh­ters is an unlov­able mean girl; one’s her gullible fol­lower. Sara does lit­tle more than com­plain about the mess they make. And Brad’s new wife Karen (Alessan­dra Am­bro­sio) is si­lent al­most the en­tire picture.

In the last of its clumsy con­trivances, Daddy’s Home 2 traps all its squab­bling char­ac­ters in a lobby full of Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions, then builds a set piece around that ’80s clas­sic of well-in­ten­tioned cul­tural ig­no­rance, Do They Know It’s Christ­mas?

Why not close this turkey of a film with one of the hol­i­day sea­son’s most an­noy­ing songs? – Hol­ly­wood Re­porter
