Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson, and John Lithgow have all done voice work at DreamWorks Animation: Ferrell in Megamind (2010) as the title character, Gibson in Chicken Run (2000) as Rocky the Rhode Island Red, and Lithgow in Shrek (2001) as Lord Farquad. See more »
One of the kids tells Santa that they want "a shotgun with lots of bullets." Shotguns use shells, not bullets ; but a small child would not be expected to know the correct term for shotgun ammunition. See more »

His total lack of masculinity, I mean his weak chin and soft underbelly bothers you not a bit?

Adding Gibson to the cast was brilliant in my opinion!
'DADDY'S HOME 2': Four Stars (Out of Five)
A sequel to the 2015 hit comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark
Wahlberg, as two rival fathers competing for the same children's love.
In this follow-up they're now friends, and they have to deal with their
own fathers visiting for the holidays, who are also complete opposites
as well of course. Mel Gibson and John Lithgow join the cast, as the
elder dads, while Linda Cardellini and John Cena also reprise their
roles from the original movie. The film was once again directed by Sean
Anders, and it was written by Anders and John Morris (the same duo also
co-wrote the original, as well as 'HOT TUB TIME MACHINE', 'SEX DRIVE',
'SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE', 'WE'RE THE MILLERS', 'HORRIBLE BOSSES 2', and
other hit comedies). This film has received nearly unanimous negative
reviews from critics, but it's done really well at the Box Office (and
with viewers there). I thought it was pretty funny too actually.
Brad and Dusty (Ferrell and Wahlberg) now get along perfectly, and our
doing a really effective job co-parenting their kids together. Then
both of their fathers, Kurt (Gibson) and Don (Lithgow), decide to visit
them for the holidays. Kurt is extremely egotistical, obsessively
masculine, and a bit of a sexist asshole. Don is really sweet, kind and
friendly. More family drama occurs because of their visit, which causes
conflict between Brad and Dusty again as well. Especially when Brad
invites the biological father (Cena) of Dusty's stepdaughter over.
The movie is frequently very funny. It definitely has some bad jokes in
it too, and it's a pretty routine family Christmas comedy, but it's
still mostly funny. Adding Gibson to the cast, as the womanizing
chauvinistic pig, was brilliant casting in my opinion as well, and he's
hilarious in the role. Lithgow is also good in his part too, and
Ferrell and Wahlberg are both effective once again too. I actually
enjoyed this sequel more than it's predecessor; it seems more packed
with quality humor to me, at least in my opinion. It's also more fun
that it's set at Christmas (in my opinion as well).
