Two men, Charlie Hinton (Eddie Murphy) and Phil Ryerson (Jeff Garlin), get laid off and have to become stay-at-home dads when they can't find jobs. This inspires them to open their own day-care center.
In this movie, two fathers, Charlie Hinton (Eddie Murphy) and Phil Ryerson (Jeff Garlin), 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, Mrs. Gwyneth Harridan (Anjelica Huston), who has driven all previous competitors out of business.Written by

Just before the puppet show, the Child Services investigator takes a cookie. When Charlie, Marvin and Phil ask for privacy to discuss the missing child Flash, the investigator is holding the cookie. The scene looks at the puppet show and then back to the investigator putting the cookie in his breast pocket. The scene moves back to the puppet show and immediately back to the investigator who now has the cookie back in his hand again. See more »
See this with the whole family. Cute, funny, well-made tale is really an adult movie, though it was marketed as a kids movie. You really care about these characters, and desparately want everything to turn out well for them. A pleasant surprise. Best fun Eddie Murphy movie since Dr Dolittle.
