Daddy Day Care [DVD] [2003]

2003's surprise family hit Daddy Day Care comes to DVD from Columbia Tristar in a packed release sure to please the kiddies over and over again. With both its 1.85:1 widescreen and full-screen video options and a full Dolby Digital 5.1 treatment on its audio, you can be sure that no one will be unhappy with what version they are forced to watch. Extras start with four different featurettes, where the focus is directly on the adorable kids in the film. From their continual harassment of Eddie Murphy to their adorable interviewing techniques as they pose each other planned questions, the kids are a riot and prove once again that they were the true stars of Daddy Day Care. Children will no doubt have a blast watching the small stars running around the set just as much as they'll love the games included on the disc: Name the Noise Maker, Kid Card Match Up, and Odd One Out, all created just for the DVD using photos and clips from the film. A separate blooper reel containing the end credits can also be found in the Special Features menu, which is probably useful only for immediacy rather than scanning through the DVD. Apart from the features based on the film, there's also a very special four-minute computer animated clip from Sony Imageworks called Early Bloomers, which most kids will eat up (especially if they're nuts for Finding Nemo). A trailers section is listed in two different spots, though both contain various children's fare, including Daddy Day Care, the original 1982 hit Annie, Matilda, Mona Lisa Smile, 2003's adaptation of Peter Pan, Cuba Gooding Jr.'s mentally challenged drama Radio, and Dana Carvey's The Master of Disguise. With cute animated menus to delight both young and old, this DVD should please fans of the film and youngsters alike.

Synopsis

Daddy Day Care
Two fathers get a crash course in caring for kids other than their own in this family-friendly comedy. Charlie Hinton (Eddie Murphy) is an advertising executive whose job monopolizes his time, making it difficult for him to stay in touch with his young son, Ben (Khamani Griffin). However, after Charlie and his partner, Phil (Jeff Garlin), are given their pink slips in the wake of a disastrous campaign for a new breakfast cereal, Charlie's wife, Kim (Regina King), goes back to work, and with the family budget tighter than before, Charlie becomes a stay-at-home dad. After pulling Ben out of an expensive and exclusive daycare center run by the humorless Gwyneth Harridan (Anjelica Huston), Charlie comes up with a brainstorm -- since he and Phil watch their own children every day, how much harder could it be to watch a few more kids and open their own day care center? Charlie and Phil discover there's much more to running a daycare center than they ever imagined, but after a very rough start, with the help of likable slacker Marvin (Steve Zahn) their new business becomes a success -- so much so that Harridan finds herself losing customers to the upstart fathers, and she starts searching for a way to shut them down. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
