I relate a lot more to Mark Wahlberg and Mel Gibson‘s characters than I do to Will Ferrell and John Lithgow‘s. Because the former are real, studly, straight-talking guys and the latter are overly sensitive p.c. candy-asses with shrivelled appendages. That’s the intended response when you watch this, of course. And you’re not meant to be bothered by the fact that in real life Wahlberg and Gibson are right-wingers. If I didn’t know better I’d say that Daddy’s Home 2 is Republican propaganda.
