Movie Info

When two fathers lose their jobs in product development at a large food company, they are forced to take their sons out of the exclusive Chapman Academy and become stay at home fathers. With no job possibilities on the horizon, the two dads open their own day care facility, "Daddy Day Care," and employ some fairly unconventional methods of caring for children. As "Daddy Day Care" starts to catch on, it launches them into a highly competitive rivalry with Chapman Academy's tough-as-nails director who has driven all previous competitors out of business.

Audience Reviews for Daddy Day Care


[img][/img] Out of all the depressing, lowbrow, dark, idiotic, repugnant family movies Eddie Murphy has created and then cursed cinema with. This is just another one of them. It's a stupid, trashy however passable flick. I'm pretty sure I saw a glimmer of heart once or twice.

Daddy day care is about 2 men who work at company that make breakfast food. When they tried to make the breakfast food healthier they got fired. Then they decide to open a day care center. The parents was uneasy about guys running a day care because they felt its the women's job to do that kind of work. Will the dads show the world that guys can do that kind of work or will they fail? Pros Good plot Funny Con Acting was lacking. If you want a good family film u should give this a try.
