DADDY'S HOME

Isn't it amazing how the same movie keeps getting made with the same stars over and over again?

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg look like the same nutty dudes from the cop comedy, The Other Guys (2010), except that this time, it's Dad (Wahlberg) versus Stepdad (Ferrell, above). The Stepdad is suddenly turned into Mega Loser Fifth Wheel in his family when his stepkids' real damn-cool Daddy-O comes back to reclaim top spot. Wahlberg, as the man every other man wants to be, builds a super tree house and makes Ferrell look like a wimp.


ROCK THE KASBAH

Bill Murray meeting the Taleban in Afghanistan? It's like a stoner sleepwalking through a minefield.

That's exactly the zany point of this trailer as Murray plays Richie Lanz (photo), a has-been manager of a budding female rock star (Zooey Deschanel) going on tour in Afghanistan to entertain American troops. This whole clip is a fish-out-of-water wacky adventure which only Murray can convey comically.
