Boston Globe

Innocuous amusement for 5- to 8-year-olds and other people stuck in the anal stage of development.

If you're looking for a modern-day "Meatballs" - or, for that matter, "Meatballs 4" - you're out of luck.

The unfunny jokes center on outhouses, vomit and flatulence. Gooding mugs, screeches, even hops up and down to no avail. Nothing can wring...

By Liam Lacey
About as much fun as being given a wedgie and hung from the camp flagpole, Daddy Day Camp is an unnecessary sequel.

GOOD MOVIE.

By _A_B_C_
I GOT TO SEE THIS MOVIE EARLY BECAUSE MY AUNT WORKS IN HOLLYWOOD. IT WAS VERY FUNNY. DEFINITELY A MUST SEE....

The kids and I laughed a lot

By action32
Sure, it is a little silly with a lot of slapstick type humor, but if you have kids they will really like it. Are we expecting anything else but just some fun at the expense of blowing things up,...

Clean Family Fun

This movie did not get good ratings which after seeing I thought was ashame. For adults it was probaly predictable for most,for kids it teaches good lessons in life with clean humor. Good family...

save your money- rent it if you must

By familyscreener
Generally if the second movie doesn't have the original cast, it might be a flop..Daddy Day Camp is a terrific example of this assumption. The movie had a lot of crude humor and questionable...

Funniest installment yet

Looks to be an instant classic in the making as far as I'm concerned, the acting is expected to be finominal and just in general it should pull a very good rating...

Daddy Who Cares

By gromit22
One of the worst movies I've ever seen. Actors dialed in their roles. Direction consisted of "bigger, bigger, louder, louder." No story line. Predictable. Lacking any of the subltle or gentle...

There is a good reason to take your kids to this one

By tom3000
OK, this concept has been done and redone, I half expected for them to break in to "It just doesn't matter". All the jokes are old and they do stoop to potty humor and fart jokes and there...

Daddy Day Camp

By mmancini
Funny and comical. A must see movie that the kids would like. My son loved it. Similar to Daddy Day Care without Eddie Murphy. Just as good....

lost time...

By filmgeek2000
I saw this movie last week, and my eyes are still hurting. At the end of my life, many many decades from now, on my deathbed, I'll regret the time I spent on this movie. Predictable, telegaphed, and...
