Not bad enough to be on the bottom 100 of IMDb, but still pretty bad.
26 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Daddy Day Care was a sweet and simple movie that I enjoyed quite a bit actually, I really don't think it needed a sequel of any sorts. As you may have seen in many of my reviews for his films, I am a huge Cuba Gooding Jr. fan and he is MUCH better than the turds like this that he is producing now a days. I will say I expected much worse, so that's a compliment I can give it I suppose. The really sad thing about this movie is that it's obvious Cuba is trying his heart out for this movie to be good. He's no Eddie Murphy but his effort his very much appreciated, I just wish it was in a much better movie. The kids have no depth to them, they're annoying and they certainly can't act, they look like that just kids. It's a film of unfunny gags for toddlers, and it just has no real heart or soul to the movie other than the relationship of Cuba, his son and Cuba's father which is superbly played by Richard Gant.

Performances. Cuba Gooding tries admirably, but he's still not that great. It's not his fault as he's stuck in a crummy movie, that should've went DTV but he tries and I give him a lot of credit for that. Lochlyn Munro is average, and grated my nerves on more than one occasion. I get he was supposed to be annoying, but he overdid it. Richard Gant is up for the task and delivered a funny performance.

Bottom line. It's not bad enough to be on the bottom 100, but it's still pretty bad. There's a shortage of laughs and a lot of annoyance to go through. Not recommended, stick with the cute original.

3/10
