They should create an Oscar category for Lead Actors in Hilariously Incompetent Roles because Will Ferrell would win time and time again. His latest spin as a loveable idiot comes in Daddy’s Home, a movie about a square stepdad (Ferrell) threatened by his stepchildren’s cool, handsome, motorcycle-riding biological father (Mark Wahlberg). The two go head-to-head in increasingly ridiculous competitions, attempting to win their family's affection. The trailer promises plenty of painful physical comedy and Linda Cardellini screentime. We’re sold.
Daddy’s Home is out on Christmas Day.
