I'm surprised I was able to sit through this film. It actually wasn't bad and I did laugh a few times.

In 'Daddy Day Care' Eddie Murphy plays an unemployed father who starts up a daycare center to make extra money and rival the competing preschool thats like 'Harvard for toddlers'. He starts it up with his co-worker played by Jeff Garlin. On their first day they have no clue how to take care of kids and feed them junk food and sing songs. They eventually get the hang of it and hire a third 'daddy' played by the hilarious Steve Zahn. Eddie Murphy did a decent job, but I think that Jeff Garlin and Steve Zahn both pushed the limits of comedy to make this movie watchable. I had a lot of fun watching this film, and the outtakes at the end were pretty good.

I was vacation and my wife wasn't feeling well so we were just relaxing in the hotel one night. The only movie channel they had was HBO and this movie happened to come on. I figured I would watch it since there was nothing else on TV. Much to my surprise this was a very fun and funny movie. So if you have nothing to do on a given night and it happens to be on I would recommend it.

Great fun for the family!

Eddie Murphy is a recently fired ad man who decides to run a day care center out of his home with the help of his co-worker and friend Jeff Garlin after money gets scare. There are many hilarious moments as we watch the two grown men struggle to cope with the problems and vicissitudes of dealing with preschool-aged children. They enlist the help of Steve Zahn, a socially-challenged Star Trek geek who just so happens to deal extraordinarily well with children.(He read the Dr. Spock's book on child development you see). Anjelica Houston is the uptight owner of a rival day school who spends most of her time trying to sabotage the efforts of the far more benevolent Daddy Day Care which has begun to lure most of her students away. This movie is just a barrel of laughs; mind you I am biased to...
