If you want to see Will Ferrell victimised by in-full-arsehole-mode Mark Wahlberg for an hour or so, this movie is for you. That actually could sound pretty appealing, but Daddy's Home is not a good movie. Far too many of the comedic beats miss their mark in this predictable and lazy story for me to recommend it.

The first PG-13 comedy from R-rated laffer auteur Sean Anders ("Horrible Bosses 2," "That's My Boy") winds up an unpalatable mix with little to satisfy families or anyone who likes to laugh.

Anders's film tells a basic story in which strutting males repeatedly lock horns to varying degrees of comic effect.

It is best avoided unless a movie that has the attitude and mind-set of a schoolyard bully happens to be your thing.

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

A movie just smart enough about being dumb.

An irresistible pairing in a hollow display case of a movie.

A one-trick pony, and that trick - an effortlessly cool Wahlberg emasculating a beleaguered Ferrell - just isn't fresh or funny enough to sustain a 95-minute movie.

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