Plot summary

What is Daddy's Home 2 movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Daddy's Home 2" movie plot summary.

After finally becoming friends, Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell) and Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) have a co-dad system where Dusty's two children, Megan and Dylan, take turns at each father's house. Dusty has also remarried, this time to Karen, a doctor/writer, and is stepfather to Adrianna (Didi Costine), Karen's daughter, who does not like Dusty and proves to be a bad influence on Megan. Brad and Dusty decide to do away with having two separate Christmases (after Megan had embarrassed the two by admitting during a school recital, through a letter she wrote, that she did not like Christmas anymore due to the dual arrangement) and instead do one "together Christmas". Dusty's tough but estranged fighter pilot/astronaut father Kurt and Brad's overbearing and over-cheerful dad, Don (John Lithgow), unexpectedly arrive for Christmas. Megan and Dylan warmly embrace Don, since he is very present in their lives, while Kurt hasn't seen the children since they were toddlers. Through jealousy of the affection the children show to Don, Kurt rents a large cabin through Airbnb, to house all of them through the holiday week.
Brad and Dusty's co-dad relationship is put to the test by Kurt's meddling, especially when Dusty becomes jealous of Brad and Don's close relationship. He later reveals that Kurt was not always there for him, and abandoned Dusty on his recital as a child for a hook-up, thus causing Dusty to forget his lines and humiliate himself, effectively resulting in Dusty forming a grudge against Kurt. Sara (Linda Cardellini) also tries to bond with Karen but is taken aback by some of Karen's actions, like shoplifting clothes from a store and not caring if Adriana and Megan drink alcoholic eggnog. She then becomes suspicious of Don's wife and Brad's mother Sherrie's absence from the household, which increases after Don alludes to possible strains in their marriage. Meanwhile, Dylan develops a crush on a little girl staying in the cabin next door, thus making Megan and Adrianna constantly tease him in front of the little girl. Brad gives him some "advice", and Dusty interjects when he finds out that Brad is having what looks like "the talk" with Dylan, when it had been agreed that Dusty would handle that.
