A film so wrong-headed audiences will be more appalled than amused.

It takes a strong stomach to hold down what Daddy Day Care force-feeds its audience.

As bland and predicable as a package of Kraft macaroni and cheese, but likely to please the same target audience.

Eddie Murphy in slapstick potty humor comedy.

Grandparents of today don't need the Great Depression stories to shock the youngsters. You heard me right, son. Eddie Murphy was once funny.

Even before the credits are complete, even before the first word of dialogue is spoken, even before you know what the plot set-up is all about, you know that it's going to have plenty of potty humor.

Congratulations Hollywood; you've completely disemboweled a truly funny man.

This is a family film that refuses to entertain any family member over age 10.

These scenes are so inevitable, you could develop a drinking game around them.

Once it gets the bodily function jokes out of its system (sorry), it settles into being a fairly agreeable little movie.

I laughed a couple of times, but mostly I was bored out of my mind and not a little depressed.

A failed third-rate sitcom is exactly what Daddy Day Care looks and sounds like.

No one wants to let Eddie and his partner watch their kids at first because they are men, and of course men are only good at tweaking their cars to shoot flames from the engine.

Murphy is so oddly bland in Daddy Day Care that it seems like he sleepwalked through the making of the film.

Daddy Day Care is a cinema-sized Romper Room reject looking to pine for its hollow hilarity by appealing to the non-judgmental and misplaced quirkiness of the targeted kid-friendly audience

The best part of the movie, unfortunately, happens in the outtakes during the credits at the very end.
