"Sean Anders and John Morris, who wrote script, kind of came to us with this where we pick up the storyline with Brad and Dusty working in unison as they parent these kids together and then they bring their fathers into the fold as they celebrate Christmas under one roof and all those dynamics create for a insane situation. It's painful, but I think pain is a precursor to change", said Mr. Gibson.
Gibson was promoting his latest film, Daddy's Home 2, when he recently said: "Things got shaken up a little bit and there is a lot of light being thrown into places where there were shadows and that is kind of healthy". Ferrell, Wahlberg, Lithgow, and a later-introduced John Cena manage to wring a few laughs out of Sean Anders and John Morris's tepid script, and the younger crowd its playing towards will most likely lap it up, but those hoping for something witty and worthy of the capable cast its been afforded will be left sorely disappointed.
Harvey Weinstein is accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women.
In 2010, he was investigated for domestic violence against then-partner Oksana Grigorieva, with recordings released to court of Gibson allegedly using racist and threatening language. In 2011, Gibson pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour battery charge against Grigorieva.
He accused "f***** Jews" of being responsible for "all the wars in the world" and threatened to pee on the floor of a police station. He also called a female officer "sugar tits". Gibson was fined, put on probation and sent to rehabilitation classes for alcohol abuse.
Consider what he said past year about his anti-Semitic comments to the police officer.
He added: "It was an unfortunate incident". He also blamed the police officer for "illegally" recording his rant, and the media for broadcasting it.
"For one episode in the back of a police auto on eight double tequilas to sort of dictate all the work, life's work and beliefs and everything else that I have and maintain for my life, is really unfair", he said. "So, not fair. I guess as who I am, I'm not allowed to have a nervous breakdown, ever".
