    Like the universal motto for the war against drugs, "Just say no" to this crash-and-burn Eddie Murphy movie. It is disgustingly horrible, abysmal, and unfunny. Steer clear.

    How is this movie hated so much? It was original and it was pretty funny as well. I must have watched it a dozen times. I am suprised that the ratings are so low for it.

    A fart filled farce bereft of the least amount of imagination.

    This family-friendly movie has a few funny moments, but it has an awkward story and some parts are just plain gross.

    Awful movie and I found myself guessing every single part of this movie which made me bored. Sorry but i give this incredibly awful movie 0%. Yep that is awful.

    I thought it was pretty good. A solid cast, interesting concept to the film, pretty funny in some parts. Hated on for who knows why, It was a good film.

    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.

  1. I laughed a couple of times, but mostly I was bored out of my mind and not a little depressed.

    You can't get more high-concept, or less plotted, than this, and Daddy Day Care is proof.

    Only really little tykes will find the surplus of pratfalls and poo and fart jokes a hoot.
