After being electrocuted and needing CPR to be revived, Brad simply and literally gets a band-aid in bed and goes about his business as if nothing happened. An event like this would most definitely result in hospitalization, especially for someone as cautious as Brad. See more »

Quotes

Brad Whitaker: [narrating] Here's a question for you. What do kids need more, a father or a dad? What's the difference? The way I see it, darn near anyone can be a father...

Brad Whitaker: ... but not everyone has the patience or the devotion to be a dad. As for me, I've always wanted to be a dad. Let me tell you, I love it! Yeah!

Timepass Movie-watchable One time.

Its a usual Will Ferrell movie that has laughs at only when he is at his usual outburst. Mark Wahlberg adds up to the support and behaves same as he did in 'The Other Guys' , which also had Ferrell. The kids are irritating . Actress doesnot have much to do apart from looking beautiful , which she definitely is. Mark and Will have a good chemistry. Ending is not upto the mark. Will's Boss also has a laughable role (not pun-intended) in the movie. Character for the black Guy is funny. The scene at Basketball stadium had me in splits due to Ferrell's outburst. :) Overall: A one time watch which if you need few Ferrell Laughs.
