Daddy Day Care
In “Daddy Day Care,” Charlie (Eddie Murphy), and Phil (Jeff Garlin), are two recently unemployed dads in desperate need of work and regaining their self-esteem. Charlie discovers, while spending his days at home with his son Ben (Khamani Griffin), the apparent lack of competitive, high quality child-care in the area, and convinces Phil to join him in a “gold-mine” endeavor. The two inept dads start Daddy Day Care. This easy-going movie from Columbia Pictures is a cute, fun-filled family comedy.
Apart from a few profanities and some bathroom humor, the film is comparatively clean and even has some positive messages. In the beginning of the movie Charlie is devoted to work and earning money while missing out on his child’s life, but in the end he sacrifices a better paying job to spend time with his son and continue providing Daddy Day Care.
