In the comedy Daddy Day Care, two fathers lose their jobs in product development at a large food company and are forced to take their sons out of the exclusive Chapman Academy and become stay-at-home fathers. With no job possibilities on the horizon, the two dads open their own day care facility, "Daddy Day Care", and employ some fairly unconventional and sidesplitting methods of caring for children. As "Daddy Day Care" starts to catch on, it launches them into a highly comedic rivalry with Chapman Academy's tough-as-nails director... who has driven all previous competitors out of business.

The original 12/2/2003 Sony/Columbia Pictures DVD of Daddy Day Care contained both a full-frame version (1.33:1 aspect) and a wide screen version (1.78:1 aspect) mastered from the original 35 mm negatives shot with spherical lens (1.37:1 aspect). The theatric projection film positive version (1.85:1 aspect) was obtained by cropping 25.9% off the height of the image on the negative. The DVD wide screen version was obtained by cropping 23.0% off the height of the image on the negative. The DVD full-frame version was obtained by retaining the full height but cropping 2.9% off the width of the image on the negative. Consequently, a boom microphone is visible at the top of the frame in the DVD full-frame version but not in the DVD wide screen version and not in the theatric version in shots of Charlie from behind Ben when they are seated alone at a table drawing at 59:02, 59:25, 59:42 and 59:58. The boom microphone appearing is an error caused by the distributor, not a goof by the filmmakers. Similarly, at 45:45 and again at 45:51 the Full Frame version shows the social worker pulling his pen out of his coat pocket twice whereas in the Wide Screen version all but a blur of the top of the pen in two frames at 45:45 is cropped off and unrecognizable.

to my surprise. This wasn't half bad. The first time in a long time, I've found an Eddie Murphy movie to be OK. Of course, it isn't him that makes this film, but the kids. They were the ones which were funny. How can you not laugh when a little girl kicks a fat guy in the crotch for no reason with her mother by her side. Plus when all the kids are given sugar treats for lunch and are bouncing off the walls. And there are many other scenes like that one.
And Angelica Houston has a worth while cameo as the head of a stuffy, over priced day care that stoops to low stunts to try to put Daddy Day Care out of business.
FINAL VERDICT: Has some funny parts. Kids should like it, but it isn't for everyone. If you like movies that require no usage of brain cells, then you might think this one is good enough to watch.
