Movie Review by Jarrod
August 13th, 2007

'Daddy Day Camp' is the idiotic follow-up to the surprisingly popular Eddie Murphy fiasco Daddy Day Care. This one has Cuba Gooding Jr, an actor if immense talent (who won an Oscar for Jerry Maguire), degrading himself, playing a character who is both stupid and boring, painfully unfunny, lacking in charm and charisma. And his partner, Phil (Paul Rae) is just as bad, but Rae is not the star that Gooding is, so we can perhaps expect less of him.

In any sense, Phil and Charlie (that is Gooding) decide to open up a summer camp. They are terrorized (and that is a fitting word for it) by Lance (Lochlyn Munro), who is determined to run them off and take the place for himself. Tamala Jones is Kim, Ben's wife, and Spencir Bridges is Ben, Charlie's son. Richard Gant is Colonel Buck Hinton, Charlie's dad, and they share a moment of sincerity that is sadly the only decently effective or engaging scene in the whole movie. Gooding's career has been in steady decline since Boat Trip. This is another nail in his coffin.

He seems to be going the same direction as Murphy, who has become synonymous with overblown box office disasters like Pluto Nash. There is plenty of tired and derivative jokes about bodily fluids, belching and flatulence, none of which are remotely amusing, unless you still giggle at such immature things like a kindergartner. It is all predictable and incredibly juvenile. I often wonder why I even bother watching movies like this; perhaps it is because then I can tell you to avoid them, but then I would assume most people with a brain would ignore this by default.
