The juvenile actors come off as movie brats, and the pacing is slowed by treacly speeches about father-son bonding. As a child star on The Wonder Years, director Fred Savage worked with some of TV's best, but you'd never guess it from this.
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.
The acting is atrocious and more obvious than you see in many high school or college productions. The jokes are stale. The storyline is so predictable, I'll bet nearly everyone in the theater will guess what happens next.
Owes more to the third or fourth sequel to Meatballs and other character-building summer-camp comedies than it does to Daddy Day Care, with neither director Fred Savage or the writers inclined to come up with a single original idea.
The worst kind of sequel. No original stars or director, just a cobbled-together script by one of the writers of Daddy Day Care. There should have been a big red flag when Eddie Murphy declined to appear.
