When Frank Collins (Reno Wilson) suffers from writer's block, he decides to start a day care for his father-in-law (Danny Trejo) and other seniors as a way to make quick cash, while giving him time to still work on his next book. Eventually getting a small group to care for, Frank soon learns that these are not your typical seniors and they can't easily be corralled. With a code enforcement officer challenging the legality of his business, and his senior charges getting into all kinds of trouble, Frank's work days become anything but effortless. Featuring an all-star cast of TV's greatest stars, Grand-Daddy Day Care is a hilarious story for the young, and young at heart.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Grand-Daddy Day Care is a comedy about an author with writer's block who opens a senior citizens' center in his home. The movie stars many long-time favorite TV and movie actors (Hal Linden, Linda Gray, George Wendt, and more) as the seniors who are his enthusiastic "clients." Expect plenty of slapstick action -- i.e., falls, chases, a taser, bumps on the head, a brief fist fight, a bee menacing a carload of people -- but no one gets seriously hurt. The movie finds humor in stereotypical aging issues -- deafness, bickering, frequent urination, problems with grown children -- and it briefly deals with the onset of dementia in a serious way. A few curse words are heard ("damn," "crap," "bastard," "screw 'em"), and folks refer to peeing and pooping in multiple scenes. A sequence in which a group of older people unwittingly ingests a mind-altering substance results in silliness, over-eating, and distorted senses. Though there's plenty of farcical physical humor and adults may appreciate seeing media celebrities from past decades, it's doubtful that most kids will find the subject matter particularly compelling.
