  • Summary: Dads Charlie Hinton and Phil Ryerson are in another kid-harried adventure as they take over running a summer day camp. Armed with no knowledge of the great outdoors, a dilapidated facility, and a motley group of campers, it doesn't take long before things get out of control. Up against threats of foreclosure and declining enrollment, Charlie is forced to call on his estranged father, Col. Buck Hinton, to help bring camp together and teach everyone about teamwork, perseverance and the power of forgiveness. (Sony Pictures) Expand

    This belabored summertime sequel is moderately less vulgar, certainly less expensive and, if possible, even less funny than its forerunning bomb, "Daddy Day Care."

    This terrible sequel to a bad movie was directed by Fred Savage, the now-grown star of "The Wonder Years," though there's no evidence of any behind-the-scenes adult supervision.
  3. Any scrap of charm or honest-to-goodness humor already possessed in limited quantities by the original has been relegated to the outhouse in this sorry follow-up.

    Filling in for Eddie Murphy in a septically humored kiddie sequel to "Daddy Day Care," Gooding gives a mug-job performance that consists mainly of reacting (again and again) to nasty smells.

    Too predictable, but kids should like it.
  6. Despite cute kids, tough dads, and problems controlling bed-wetting and farts, Daddy Day Camp should just limp off to the nurse's tent and call it quits.
  7. 0
    A generic time-waster powered by a lazy, cynical combination of scatological kiddie humor and maudlin sentiment.

    It has morals, and humor, but it's missing a screw with it's preceding movie, Daddy Day Care. It does not have the same feel nor does it have Eddie Murphy. Come on! I was going to rate this a 4 but having a different set of actors with the grown-ups doesn't make sense. Just not as good as the original at all. Expand

    Even Eddie Murphy refused to participate in this ridiculous reboot.

    Very few funny moments here and the cast doesn't seem to care about what is going on in the first place. There is very very little here to recommend.
