Daddy’s Home – How Life Can Get Turned Upside-Down

Daddy's Home
Daddy’s Home — A Movie With a Powerful Message

I figured I’d take advantage of Cinemark’s Tuesday $6 Movie Day and do something different, go see a show today…

Initially, I planned to check out the new Star Wars flick, but went with my gut instead, and opted to see Will Farrell’s new comedy, Daddy’s Home. It turned out to be a good choice.

Daddy’s Home has a clear message: what real love and care are all about in a family setting — and, it’s very funny, too. The show depicts how family life is turned upside-down when the biological father unexpectedly comes to visit for several days.

Will Farrell nails it in an understated, mild-mannered way, as the Step-Dad — a guy who constantly battles being treated as an outsider by his step-kids, but who never gives up truly loving his kids and wife. Mark Wahlberg does an excellent job playing the cool, self-centered, biological father — a hip, buff guy with ulterior motives.

The show has some creative twists, and a welcome — good finally triumphs — sort of ending.

I’d recommend this show to anyone interested in seeing family values and love portrayed in a humorous, real-life sort of way, a portrayal that is believable without becoming sappy, or slick.
