Watching children act, when it's bad, is on par with having a tooth pulled; and suffice it to say, the adult acting is not much better.

Daddy Day Camp truly is a horrific mess. It's not really a movie for kids; it's a movie for kids by adults who don't have the slightest idea what makes a quality film for any audience ... puerile doesn't even begin to do it justice.

While the actors in Daddy Day Camp may be different, the tired and predictable storyline full of jokes involving urinating, flatulence, burping, vomiting and crotch shots remains the same.

Gates and Rae are game, but not funny in the least. The kids are stereotypes, and not particularly amusing ones.

A lot of wet stuff flies toward the screen and there are many, many intended-to-be-hilarious gags (in both senses of the word) about things that smell bad.

It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you.

There's no point being highbrow about a film that relies on the typical fart-puke-nuts-kaboom brand of family comedy, but [director] Savage's lethargic, impersonal approach can't even make Camp's gross-out moments appropriately revolting.

Have your little ones already seen Ratatouille and rented Thunderpants?

Cuba 'Show me the money!' Gooding, Jr. stars in this utterly predictable, unfunny, infantile test of patience and waste of ninety minutes of my life I can never get back. Show me the exit!

The screenplay is attributed to three writers. That means if the film's funny parts were divided evenly among them, they each wrote zero.

It's all obtusely broad and ridiculous, and the dreaded 'life lessons' drag it out interminably.

The film doesn't need a heartfelt detour, especially any creation that contains a revenge scenario involving a urine-filled water balloon, and it disappoints me that the production didn't have the guts to assemble a more relaxed summer camp farce.

A Cuba Gooding, Jr. kind of boyz in the woods career trajectory switch.

Criminally lazy follow-up to the syrupy family comedy Daddy Day Care.

The antics of cute or precocious children can't save this mess.
