Story: Comedy sequel directed and co-written by Sean Anders which follows father and stepfather, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) who are now living harmoniously as co-dads, raising their kids. When Christmas comes around they decide to join forces to provide their kids with the perfect Christmas.
However, their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty’s old-school, macho dad, Kurt Mayron (Mel Gibson), and Brad’s ultra-affectionate and emotional dad, Mr. Whitaker (John Lithgow), arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.
