Daddy's Home Trailer (2015)
Daddy's Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.
Daddy's Home is the second time Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have teamed up; they previously appeared together in The Other Guys (2010).
Tony Hawk and Mike McGill were used as stunt doubles in a skateboarding scene during the movie.
The basketball scene, where the cheerleader takes a ball to the head, was filmed during halftime of a real basketball game between the Pelicans and the Lakers in New Orleans.
Will Ferrell is a really great comedy actor. That's my opinion, anyway. I know there are those out there who can't stand him, but I always find his movies thoroughly enjoyable, because Ferrell is great at acting the fool and though sometimes he might not have the best scripts to work from he does, for the most part, always bring out the best in a film.
From the look of this trailer, Daddy's Home will appeal to me. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a serious, hard hitting movie. Sometimes I want something with emotional depth that will leave me thinking about it for days afterward and sometimes- quite a lot of the time actually- I want something light-hearted, something that doesn't require me to think, something that has silly one liners and visual gags and something that makes me laugh out loud.
Daddy's Home seems to be all of that and more. The trailer aptly highlights the war of one-upmanship between Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg's characters and yes, it gets more and more ridiculous, but why not? Of course, we know there will be a moment in the movie where the step-dad appears to have lost it all, and the inevitable sugary sweet happy ending, but the chance to watch Wahlberg and Ferrell play opposite each other? I'm not going to pass that up.
As for the end of this trailer, well, it really took me a long time to stop laughing at the basketball game scene. Sometimes the inevitable jokes really are the best ones. You know something awful will happen and when it does? It's funny as hell.
