When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
After finally becoming friends at the end of the first film, Brad Whittaker (Will Ferrell) and Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) have a co-dad system where their two children, Megan (Scarlett Estevez) and Dylan (Owen Vaccaro), take turns at each father's house. Dusty has also remarried, this time to Karen (Alessandra Ambrosio), a writer, and is stepdad to Adrianna (Didi Costine), Karen's daughter. Brad and his wife, Sara (Linda Cardellini), along with Dusty and Karen, attend a school play for Megan, where she announces to the whole audience that she doesn't like the fact that she has to go back and forth to different houses all the time. Back at the house, after the play, Brad and Dusty decide to do away with having two separate Christmases and instead do one "together Christmas". Dusty, however, finds out his tough fighter pilot/astronaut father Kurt (Mel Gibson) is coming for Christmas..
When Mark Wahlberg's character is throwing a snowball, the music from The Departed (2006) is playing. Wahlberg was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Departed (2006). See more »
When Megan fires the shotgun, she holds it with the stock under her arm instead of resting against her shoulder. Firing it this way would cause severe injury. See more »
[to Dusty; referring to Brad]
His total lack of masculinity, I mean his weak chin and soft underbelly bothers you not a bit?

You know, I'm just getting the feeling maybe you guys would like some privacy.

This, in my opinion, is a fantastic movie. The actors and actresses are phenomenal. I do love that they added Mel Gibson, who plays the perfect "dad" to Mark Wahlberg. Will Ferrell and John Lithgow are a true match for a "father/son" combo.
To me, this movie is uplifting and all around fun. I, unfortunately, deal with a lot of stress/anxiety but I turn this movie on and it "soothes" me.
I can't wait for number 3.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who made this movie happen.
