    If you’re looking for a film that’s just about guaranteed to make you feel good, you’d be well advised to drop by Daddy’s Home.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mark Olsen

    In its best moments, it's a sly exposé of the frailties of the contemporary male self-image and in its lesser moments a simplistic slapstick. This being a Will Ferrell comedy, sometimes those moments are one and the same.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Rose Falcone

    Anders had many opportunities to pit the dads against each other directly, but trades in the cheesy, expected route for devious mind games.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Consider it a predictable movie with flashes of unpredictability, one that actually coaxes some early laughs with, yes, scatological wit, then makes us groan when it shamefully takes the low road back to poopville a bit later on.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Allen Salkin

    The world needs great Will Ferrell comedies. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Simon Crook

    If it all ends in cornball reconciliation, the dumb, fuzzy smile it leaves suggests it’s well earned.

    Empire Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Lame Ferrell, through some weird freak of his talent, tends to be the best Ferrell, and despite the film’s general mediocrity in most departments – let us swish briskly over everything about the way it looks – his floundering star turn delivers the goods.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    Overconfidence in the face of mediocrity is something Ferrell usually satirizes. This time, he’s more of a participant.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    Daddy’s Home is not the world of Peak Ferrell, where jokes fly fast and absurdism rules the day. Instead, it is a land of predictable punchlines, easy sight gags and easier paycheques.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    Daddy’s Home is a movie with a one-joke premise: Will Ferrell, he’s a pincushion of punishment. Make him screech. Watch him squirm.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The problem with Ferrell’s character is he goes from bland to desperate to off the rails — and very little about that transition is genuinely funny. The problem with Wahlberg’s character is he never seems all that dangerous or mysterious.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    What keeps Daddy's Home watchable is Wahlberg's checkmate machismo, as the intimidating foil necessary for Ferrell's namby-pambyism to register.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    There are a few laughs here and there. Most come at the expense of Ferrell, who plays the kind of hapless (and occasionally shirtless) straight arrow that the actor could turn out in his sleep.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Such a hit-and-miss mess that it makes the wild-and-crazy-to-the-point-of-sometimes-flailing tenor of “Anchorman” and other such Ferrell vehicles feel like finely-tuned Logitech vehicles. Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    To be fair, Ferrell is almost always at least mildly funny, even when doing something as lame as skateboarding into a power line, but Wahlberg’s cowboy shtick just seems half-hearted.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The performers are all skilled enough to make something of this tired material.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Ferrell and Wahlberg are both game, but the material only sporadically lets them let loose and do something truly creative, while poor Cardellini transitions from naggy to unreliable.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Fitfully entertaining, and even more rarely actually funny, Daddy's Home, tellingly, only really comes alive in the very last portion of the third act.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    Daddy’s Home is the white bread of family comedies, stuffed with everything you’ve seen before.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Ferrell and Wahlberg previously paired up in "The Other Guys", one of the great comedies of the millennium, but put aside any expectation that their latest collaboration might even come close to that sublime masterpiece.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Not that there’s anything wrong with raunch. But in the Judd Apatow era of raunch-coms, Anders’ version is pretty weak tea.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Daddy’s Home is one of those comedies that is not terribly good, but not nearly as terrible as it might have been.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    Daddy’s Home raises the occasional smile, but it’s not exactly Wahlberg or Ferrell’s finest hour.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Edward Frost

    Directed by Sean Anders, the film goes out of its way to contrive its central masculinity crises in ways that quickly settle for lame, lowest common denominator jokes.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Wendy Idle

    It’s by-numbers filmmaking that rarely adds up to anything worth the price of admission.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    By playing it too safe, Daddy’s Home never finds that comic sweet spot and never rises above, “Well, it’s not awful.”

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Jon Frosch

    Its rhythms are sluggish, its jokes predictable and the gags are set up with such thudding deliberateness that even the sight of Ferrell losing control of a motorcycle, careening through the air and crashing straight through his house barely raises an eyebrow.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    Daddy’s Home isn’t so much a lump of coal as an empty box.

    Variety Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    Though Will Ferrell has made a career out of his own debasement, the film quickly becomes too cruel to generate laughter for anyone who would empathize with him.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Daddy’s Home is an ugly psychological cockfight posing as a family-friendly comedy. Laugh-free — except for some farcical, life-threatening stunts at the expense of Will Ferrell’s character, Brad — it is best avoided unless a movie that has the attitude and mind-set of a schoolyard bully happens to be your thing.
