Directed by one-time child star Fred Savage, Daddy Day Camp, the sequel to Eddie Murphy's Daddy Day Care, stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Paul Rae as Charlie Hinton and Phil Ryerson, a pair of fathers who attempt to keep their summer camp afloat even though they are under dire economic strain. In order to help improve the financial situation, and to whip together a group of children who have a problem with following orders, Hinton brings in his military-trained father (Richard Gant), even though he and his father have been on the outs. Soon the campers, and the fathers, are involved in a series… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even the film stock's colour tint looks cheap and nasty. Don't say we didn't warn you."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Because he's an Oscar winner with a rep now for headlining turkeys, watching Cuba Gooding Jr. in trash like Daddy Day Camp almost hurts."
‑ Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly
"Daddy Day Camp truly is a horrific mess. It's not really a movie for kids; it's a movie for kids by adults who don't have the slightest idea what makes a quality film for any audience ... puerile doesn't even begin to do it justice."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"I can't think of a single kind word to say about this unfortunate family comedy which is unoriginal, predictable, schmaltzy and bland."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"An unnecessary and unlovable sequel to the Eddie Murphy vehicle Daddy Day Care, though this time the producers have traded down to Cuba Gooding Jr. Not recommended."
‑ Robert Hanks, Independent
"Just horrible."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"There's no point being highbrow about a film that relies on the typical fart-puke-nuts-kaboom brand of family comedy, but [director] Savage's lethargic, impersonal approach can't even make Camp's gross-out moments appropriately revolting."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you."
‑ Brooke Holgerson, Boston Phoenix
"Forgettable camp comedy is fine for kiddie laughs."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Criminally lazy follow-up to the syrupy family comedy Daddy Day Care."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian [UK]
"The juvenile actors come off as movie brats, and the pacing is slowed by treacly speeches about father-son bonding. As a child star on The Wonder Years, director Fred Savage worked with some of TV's best, but you'd never guess it from this."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"One of the most inept movies a Hollywood studio has ever unleashed."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"While the actors in Daddy Day Camp may be different, the tired and predictable storyline full of jokes involving urinating, flatulence, burping, vomiting and crotch shots remains the same."
‑ Adam Tobias, Watertown Daily Times
"Parents! Hire a bouncy castle. Put on clown paint and make balloon animals. You need not see this."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Never work with children or animals. Unless you're a child or an animal, in which case, never work with Cuba Gooding Jnr."
‑ Jamie Russell, BBC
