Big Momma: That's a nice family you got back there. The reason I point it out because I'm not sure you're around enough to notice.

Mr Fueller: Okay, I deserve that. My dad worked all the time too. Hardly ever saw the man. I swore that I was gonna be different, but, uh, its easier than I thought.

What does "it" refer to?

It's easier than he thought it would be to work all the time and not be around for his family.

You missed the apostrophe out of "it's" in your post, Kingston.

it = being a bad dad

So, being a bad dad is easier than Fueller thought it would be.

Kingston, can you name any of the grammar errors in that dialogue?
