Not a great movie but certainly something you can watch with your children. Murphy, Garlin and Zahn do an excellent job of bailing this leaky boat with real appeal and comedic talent.

Murphy, Garlin and Zahn do an excellent job of bailing this leaky boat with real appeal and comedic talent. DD had a lot of potential - encountering the problems a man would have dealing with daycare while exploring client/employer, child/parent relationships. DD could've shown growth and character development with the denoument ending at Murphy's own selfdeliverance. INSTEAD the movie opted for a cardboard, 2-dimensional cartoon villainess played by Angelica Huston. Honestly, placing an animated Disney witch in the center of this film couldn't be more off-putting and sinks the film for adult audiences. HINT: Movies don't always need a villain! Imagine Apollo 13 (also about 3 men trying to fix a bad situation) but with a prancing evildoer in a black cape delivering lines of dramatic malevolence. Collapse

A good family movie, if your children are 7 years old and remember what day care was like at age 4. It is lost on everyone else. Lots of screaming kids. Not anything as interesting as the similar child school movie, Kindergarten Cop, in A good family movie, if your children are 7 years old and remember what day care was like at age 4. It is lost on everyone else. Lots of screaming kids. Not anything as interesting as the similar child school movie, Kindergarten Cop, in which Schwartzenegger interjected his own brand of foolishness simply by way of his stone face and heavy accent. This movie has none of that appeal nor charm. Expand

There is still a faint memory of when Eddie Murphy was funny. It was the 80s and the 90s. Trading places, Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America.
