Not much was expected of this movie, at least with people who’d heard that Peter Berg was on board to direct. That man also directed Battleship (2012). C’mon now, ’nuff said. Combine that with Mark Wahlberg… not good. There’s also the little matter of support for the war in the States being at an all time low, projected to be at around 18%. So you’d think that the movie would bomb financially and be less than ...

Even before Gibson shows up, it’s already fun. Brad Whitaker (Will Ferrell) and Dusty Mayron (Mark Wahlberg) are now best pals, with the latter now acquiescing to Whitaker’s softly and ‘progressive’ family leadership methods. It’s ...
