What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Daddy's Home 2 may look like a family-friendly holiday-themed film from the ads, but many parents will find it inappropriate for younger kids. It has lots of sexual content and iffy messages about sex and gender roles: Mel Gibson's character is presented as a "stud" who effortlessly attracts women half or even a third of his age; they seem happy to have no-strings-attached sex with him. Viewers also hear about him bedding two women at once ("that went into extra innings," he leers to his grandson). A young boy is teased frequently for his crush on a girl; a kiss he plants on a different girl later is presented as a win for him, but no attention is paid to her feelings about the kiss. In general, female characters are given short shrift compared to male ones. Violence is played for laughs but is surprisingly strong: A chainsaw almost decapitates a man, snow tubers cartwheel down a mountain, and a young girl accidentally shoots her grandpa in the shoulder before killing two wild turkeys (offscreen). A scene in which two young girls get drunk on stolen eggnog is also presented comically; there are no consequences for their actions. Language includes "ass," "bitch," "damn," and more, plus insults that imply that the (male) recipients are weak or unmasculine ("candy ass," "ladies," etc.). Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, and John Lithgow co-star alongside Gibson.
