Eddie Murphy has come along way since his stand-up days. Finally a movie he can sit with his own kids. For anybody with kids will love this movie. This movie starts with two out of work dads Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin begin to stay at home with their kids while their wives work. Till one day they decide to run a daycare center, much of the dismay of their wives. But managing a bunch of 4 year olds is not as easy as it seems. But when they become a success, an evil strict school principal sets up a scheme to ruin them. And that's all I will tell you about the movie. It was a funny <more>
family orientated movie. The kids were cute and funny. Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin had me laughing my head off. If you are curious go out and rent this movie.
Daddy daycare is a feel good movie for me. I'm not sure why but I never cared for Eddie's previous movies, expect for SNL. My son watches it with me and imitates the little boy, Ben. I think it's nice story of a man who really cares for the children and loves his son. There is no violence or cursing and I appreciate that. I also think there home is beautiful. I like looking at how they decorate. The kids are so cute. My favorite part is when Marvin meets Kelly for the first time and he falls for her. Marvin keep on tripping over his words. I would like to see a Daddy Daycare part <more>
2. I hope this helps someone who hasn't seem this movie. That is all I have to say.
I'm sorry but i think daddy day care is one of the best movies i have ever seen. its funny and had a good plot. I'm watching it right now actually. Eddie Murphy was as funny in this movie as he is in others. its a creative movie that the whole family can enjoy. who know.. it might be somebody's inspiration one day when they've been laid off. i laughed the whole time this movie was playing and the movie was by no means "horrible" like posted in other comments. Its one of those movies that one day when you are flipping through the channels on the t.v. and you see <more>
"Daddy Day Care" and you're like Oh, i haven't seen that in so long!its also a movie you could sit there and watch over and over. i don't know what you peoples problem is but its one of the best movies ever!
A more subdued Eddie shows that less IS more.. (by canuckteach)
Caught this today on DVD with a buddy's grand-kids, and was pleasantly surprised. I have given it 9 out of 10, not for pure artistic merit, but as a funny 'family-film'. Certainly, the current rating here at IMDb is pessimistic. There are only 2 or 3 decent films of this sort produced annually in Hollywood, the rest being utter trash.Eddie Murphy plays a more subdued role than we might expect as a high-powered 'player' in the ad game, with little time for his family. A sudden change finds him desperate for work or an enterprise, in a plot ploy reminiscent of Michael <more>
Keaton's "Mr. Mom". The unfolding action finds Eddie scrambling to operate a day care facility with frenetic partners Jeff Garlin and, later, Steve Zahn. Murphy allows that duo to handle the slapstick end of things. He remains the thinker and the one who calms the waves of lunacy, allowing the plot to move forward to the next challenge facing our heroes.The satirical side of this story is shown by examining the competing snotty daycare center of the always-delightful Angelica Huston, reprising her 'vampy villainess' role of "Ever After". She runs a sophisticated academy for toddlers that Fraser and Niles Crane might envy but it really needs to be taken down a peg or two .Refreshing, too, is the portrayal of the daycare inspector unleashed on Eddie by Huston. Instead of the typical clichéd grump who threatens and hollers, we get a tender, supportive fella who really wants the boys to succeed we find out why at the end - watch the puppet show carefully! .Garlin is the closest thing I've seen to a replacement for our departed and dear John Candy, a slightly over-sized actor who can combine tenderness with slapstick! Zahn was an unusual sidekick fit as 'Giordino' to McConaughey's 'Dirk Pitt' in "Sahara", and, here as a hapless Trekkie, impresses with his comedic timing.Other notables pop up in supporting roles, and the kids are terrific. Enjoy! Final word to other actors of former glory: check your ego at the door, share the limelight with a great supporting cast and find a real script with likable or compelling characters. in no particular order.
OK did everybody forget that this movie is a family comedy. To the person who sits behind their computer screen quoting Eddie Murphy's earlier work, why did you even watch this. There is no shock we all knew this was a movie for kids and their parents and the young at heart. Please move on and stop trying to drag down the rating because you didn't feel this role was good enough for him.Every time I watch this movie I find it adorable and fun to watch. I can't help but enjoy watching it and have done so many times. It's sweet and has that endearing quality. The kids add so much <more>
to the movie especially the little boy who plays Eddie Murphy's son. He is fantastic.It may have your typical family comedy themes but this movie is so much more than that. If you allow it to be what it is supposed to be then I find it hard to believe you don't love it as much as I do.
In my opinion this is one of the best family movies ever. I have watched a bunch times and laugh every time. The jokes really never get old. It is perfect for our "Family Movie Nights" and everyone loves it!!! I hope everyone else likes it too! If you like this movie and review please go subscribe to me on YouTube!! TheLCAProductions!!! I will be doing more reviews and movies soon! Please keep an eye out for all of my future projects, and my amazing, outstanding, short films!!!!I really hope that everyone else loves the movie as much as I do!!!!
Mixed Feelings (by SpazMcG7)
I've seen this movie a couple of times and I'm feeling rather mixed about it. On one level I have a new kind of respect for Eddie, seeing him in a nice family movie that I can show my baby cousins and still laugh at myself. However I also know that we've passed the point of no return on this one, we will never again see the strong 80's Eddie that we once loved. I suppose we should look at this as a new chapter in the career of one of America's funniest men, and while it is depressing I'm still slightly awed that Eddie is still on the scene. After several blundering <more>
movies and one very sorry attempt at singing stardom we find an enduring man who can in fact change with the times. So for all the Daddy DayCare bashers I think you should just be glad the our favorites Murphy man is still around.
Very cute and fun for the family (by Smells_Like_Cheese)
I honestly thought that "Daddy Day Care" was a very cute movie. I really had my doubts since I don't have my own kids lucky enough, I don't have to watch this. But my mom said to give the movie a shot and to have fun with it. I was plesantly surprised and laughed more than a few times. Yes, it's a cheesy movie and very typical, but you have to learn to have a little fun with it. It reminded me a lot of "Kindergarten Cop". You have got to admit that this was a lot better than Eddie Murphy's last film "The Haunted Mansion". It's got laughter, <more>
drama, and just good old slap stick fun that you or the whole family will enjoy. Just give it a shot.8/10
this movie is rated low just because its a comedy. If you check all the movies are comedies rated low especially Eddie Murphys . Eddie Murphys is an actor who plays amazing and funny in many good movies. This comedy movie is good for the whole family and very fun to see it t in a family movie night. If you choose not to see this movie because of its rating then you make a big mistake believe me it's not a waste of time .its music is great. and you will enjoy watching it. I loved this movie sow match i watched it like about four times. this movie is good for all ages and don't be <more>
afraid to show it to your kids because its just fine.
