Ferrell portrays a mild-mannered radio executive who strives to become the best possible stepfather to his wife’s two children. Wahlberg plays their freeloading father — who everyone seems to adore in the new trailer.
“There is no way this man is not your better in every way” a Spanish-speaking limo driver tells Ferrell’s character.
The fathers wind up competing for the affection of children, culminating in a scene where Wahlberg’s character has scored courtside seats for a Lakers game. The trailer includes footage that’s already gone viral of Ferrell hitting a cheerleader (played by Taryn Terrell) in the face with a basketball.
