Daddy Day Care (2003, USA) C-92m. ** D: Steve Carr. Starring Eddie Murphy, Jeff Garlin, Steve Zahn, Regina King, Kevin Nealon, Jonathan Katz, Lacey Chabert, Angelica Huston. Contrived comedy about Murphy and Garlin, who have both lost their jobs and now decide to open a kindergarten / pre-school, with the only accptable one around being Huston's elite pre-school. Strictly-by-the-numbers fare, with my son asking half-way through when the funny scenes would come. Even Murphy is surprisingly one-note.
