Daddy Day Care is the hilarious comedy about kids ruling the roost! When ad execs Charlie (Dr. Dolittle's Eddie Murphy) and Phil (TV's "Curb Your Enthusiasm's" Jeff Garlin) lose their jobs trying to sell a veggie-flavored breakfast cereal, their wives head off to work. But when they realize they can't afford to keep their kids at the fancy Chapman Academy run by the evil Miss Harridan (The Addams Family's Anjelica Huston), Charlie and Phil become the proprietors of Daddy Day Care. Little do these two Mr. Moms realize that they have just begun their own adventures in babysitting! Daddy Day Care's excellent supporting cast includes Steve Zahn (Stuart Little), Regina King (Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde) and Kevin Nealon (Anger Management).

Slapstick comedy is filled with potty humor, pratfalls.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Daddy Day Care is a 2003 movie in which Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin star as two recently laid-off dads who find their true calling when they decide to start their own day care center. The humor is frequently puerile at best, including scenes were kids kick Garlin in the crotch or Murphy in the knees or call them names such as "butthead," to say nothing of the frequent flatulence sound effects and kids belching. There is occasional profanity, including a scene in which Murphy is clearly about to spell out "f--k" to fool his young son. Before their behavior improves while going to "Daddy Day Care," many of the kids engage in questionable behaviors such as drinking bubble soap and burping bubbles, yelling about how a brand of cereal "sucks," and the aforementioned kicking and name-calling of adults, all of which could be imitated by impressionable kids.
