In the new movie, Ferrell and Wahlberg reprise their roles as Dusty and Brad and their step-dad detente is tested when their extended families converge for a big Christmas party. Mel Gibson co-stars as Dusty’s gruff, macho and estranged father, while John Lithgow plays Brad’s overly affectionate pops.
The new trailer boasts plenty of ridiculousness, including a silly take on the classic mirror gag and Wahlberg threatening some impatient parents in the school pick-up line. Elsewhere, Ferrell and Lithgow greet each other with a prolonged kiss and Gibson’s character tries out some new material on Dusty and Brads’ children: “Hey kids, I got a good one for you, two dead hookers wash up on the shore…”
Daddy’s Home 2 also stars Linda Cardellini and John Cena.
