Father’s have one big rule in every family. Don’t touch the thermostat.
If you’re cold wear a jacket is what mine always told our family. I never understood why growing up but now as an adult, you get it. Turning on the heater is expensive as all hell and it’s definitely something that I’m going to pass down to my kids.
The writers took that simple idea that only dads can touch the thermostat for a scene in ‘Daddy’s Home 2’. Brad (Will Ferrell) his dad (John Lithgow) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and his dad Kurt (Mel Gibson) have gone north to celebrate the holidays. Brad and his dad are very loving and chill while Dusty and Kurt are the opposite. They all find a common ground when Kurt and Brad’s dad wake up sweating in the cabin they share. In the above interview Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, and John Lithgow discuss their favorite scene dealing with the thermostat.
‘Daddy’s Home 2’ releases November 10, 2017.
