Daddy Day Care is ground zero in the new breed of awful family movies -- entertainment designed for parents who'll take their kids to anything that shuts them up for 90 minutes.

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

Daddy Day Care is a kid flick that's been kitted out with a lot of grown-up smart-assness—the better to broaden its appeal to audiences who weren't born in the '90s.

Has enough gags to transcend its saccharine and predictable plot.

The movie is clearly aimed at kids, but is this really the kind of stuff we should be filling their brains with?

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.

...doesn't offer much beyond cute faces and forgettable poop jokes.

["Daddy Day Care"] is a straightforward, don't-expect-any-surprises kind of pre-summer entertainment that has a good supporting cast, precocious kids and a premise that lends itself to slapstick comedy.

The title tells it all, and when you cast Eddie Murphy in that role, you know you've got the attention of the family trade who will have an almost hypocritically high tolerance for raunchy gags.

I'm not offended by its singular lack of energy or invention - I never expected more than a cinematic Big Mac when I saw Eddie Mur-phy's name above the title 'Daddy Day Care.' But what I got was a sandwich from a gas station.

[Murphy's] charming enough in this restrained mode.

Furthers Eddie Murphy's transformation into Bill Cosby. Two things are wrong with that. Bill Cosby already is Bill Cosby, and Eddie Murphy used to be Eddie Murphy.

Daddy Day Care is not Toddlers of the Damned. It's Toddlers of the Damned Funny.

The kids will like it, as kids always do. It is after all for them. Unfortunately, it is not for you, and thus any parent will have a lousy time.
May 12, 2003
It's one of the worst movies of the year.

Efficient, if cloying, crowd-pleaser...it does manage to hit its target, even if it's aiming very low.

To expect magnificence would have been futile; I was perfectly willing to settle for entertaining.

Your kids will like it, and you will too.
