Consensus: A mirthless, fairly desperate family film, Daddy Day Camp relies too heavily on bodily functions for comedic effect, resulting in plenty of cheap gags but no laughs.

Even the film stock's colour tint looks cheap and nasty. Don't say we didn't warn you.

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.

If they decide to make Daddy Day Spa with Martin Lawrence and Jim Belushi, I don't want to hear about it.

Just horrible.

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.

AV Club

A generic time-waster powered by a lazy, cynical combination of scatological kiddie humor and maudlin sentiment.

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.

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.

Daddy Day Camp, a too-late, too-lame sequel to Eddie Murphy's family comedy, Daddy Day Care.
