Daddy’s Home is such a timely feel good type of movie that’s so perfect for a Christmas day release. Not only is it the type of flick the entire family can enjoy; the antics between Brad Taggart (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) are freaking hilarious! This 90 minute movie is non stop knee slapping funny from beginning to end.
Several celebrities and their children attended the event. Kandi Burruss (her baby bump), Riley Buruss, Todd Tucker and his daughter Katrina. Gocha, her bae Dice Dixon and her salon family in tow; Angela Yee (the breakfast club) and more Atlanta tastemakers. Special thanks to Gocha Illuminations as host; Neyo’s Compound Foundation and V103 who sponsored the movie and invited children from the foundation treating them to popcorn & snacks. Its always pleasant to see R & B singer Q Parker (112) always making it a family affair with his children, his wife Sharlinda Parker and her twin sister Sebrina Rowe.
The synopsis is as follows:
Brad Taggart (Will Ferrell) plays a quirky but straight laced, sentimental radio executive who’s dream in life is to be accepted by his his wife (Linda Cardellini) 2 children’s as their step(DAD). He went out of his way to be the best stepdad and fill the void of their in and out (mostly out of the picture biological dad). Slow but steady progress was in the works until he showed up. The “he” being Dusty (Mark Wahlberg). Mr Perfect at everything except being a responsible daddy duty type of father.
When Linda’s impossibly cool ex-husband Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) breezes back into town, the kids were overjoyed, however Brad’s feeling of insecurity quickly develops into an inferiority complex. Can you say, “Let the competition begin!.” As Dusty flexes his body, athletic abilities, great handy man home repair skills, and overall McDreamy macho man charm Taggart finds himself in a no win situation except to battle for the love of his step kids and gain the upper hand of this rival pop up biological father.
This is a must see movie, especially for blended families who probably face similar less exaggerated situations. Everyone left the movie in tears of joy because isn’t that what family being together at the holidays equates to? Tears of joy and pain. Dec 25th this movie will be open in all theaters.
