Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have a “good old-fashioned Dad-off” in the new trailer for Daddy’s Home.

The comedy follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.

Linda Cardellini, Thomas Haden Church, Paul Scheer,and Hannibal Buress co-star alongside Ferrell and Wahlberg, who previously teamed up in 2010 for The Other Guys.

The Paramount release opens on Dec. 25.
