Pre-Trailer Thoughts: In a world where nobody thought the film Daddy’s Home would get a sequel, well here we are. We have one. Daddy’s Home 2 looks to expand upon the awkward relationship between Wahlberg and Ferrell with their fathers. Maybe this will be a good thing? -LJF

Pre-Trailer Thoughts: Why, God, why? -BB

Rate the Trailer: 3 out of 5. I’ve never seen the original Daddy’s Home but this trailer actually makes me curious to watch it because the sequel does look funny. The “escalator entrances” featuring Gibson and Lithgow are hilarious but I’m wondering if that’s the best joke in the movie. In any case, this follow-up does look entertaining. -LJF

Rate the Trailer: 1 out of 5. This is about as paint by numbers a holiday movie as you get. The jokes are tired, and the movie isn’t even out yet. -BB

Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Rent. The cast here is pretty great and the movie itself will probably be decent. I’ll eventually give it a watch. -LJF

Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? No Thanks. If Hollywood couldn’t get it right with A Bad Moms Christmas, I doubt they will with Daddy’s Home 2, which is essentially the same movie…different cast and gender.

Daddy’s Home 2 comes to theaters on November 10th, 2017
