Daddy Day Care

Synopsys

Charlie, a busy working father, is laid off after the health division in his company was shut down. Desperate for money, he opens up a day care center with the help of two friends. As it became more popular, a nearby school's daycare became less populated, because Charlie's center, Daddy Day Care was much cheaper. Mrs. Harridan, the head mistress of that school, attempts to shut down Daddy Day Care, but fails. Charlie and one of his friends are offered a better job and they decide to take it. But not long after, Charlie soon realizes that the job isn't what he really wants to do. He returns to Daddy Day Care, only to learn that everybody left and went to the expensive school. He successfully convinces the children and their parents to come back, and Daddy Day Care becomes a raging success.

Summary

In the hilarious comedy Daddy Day Care, two fathers (Eddie Murphy, Jeff Garlin) lose their jobs in product development at a large food company and are forced to take their sons out of the exclusive Chapman Academy and become stay-at-home fathers. With no job possibilities on the horizon, the two dads open their own day care facility, "Daddy Day Care", and employ some fairly unconventional and sidesplitting methods of caring for children. As "Daddy Day Care" starts to catch on, it launches them into a highly comedic rivalry with Chapman Academy's tough-as-nails director (Anjelica Huston) ...who has driven all previous competitors out of business.

Goofs
• Continuity: When Charlie pulls up to the Academy for their appointment, he emerges from a car stopped parallel to the steps. In the next cut, the car is parked diagonally in relation to the steps.
• Continuity: During the puppet show, the girl with the glasses is sitting quite a way from the camera, but in the next shot, she's the closest person to the camera.
• Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Phil is standing on the sofa, playing the guitar, the music keeps going when he's not strumming.
• Continuity: When Charlie and his son are sitting at the table having breakfast, Charlie puts his fist to the side of his face, and his son copies. In the shot of both of them, his son's hand isn't a complete fist, he still has his fingers pointing out, but in the next shot of just him, his hand is a complete fist.
• Continuity: When Charlie and Ben are at the table coloring, Ben's crayon changes from yellow to red and back again between shots.
• Continuity: At the beginning of the movie, the kid who is only supposed to speak in "Klingon" is talking to another kid on the steps when they are getting the mission statement, and also singing along with the songs.
• Continuity: When Phil and Marvin are being chased by the bees outside, Charlie and the kids are watching in the window and are in different windows in different shots.
• Continuity: Just before the puppet show, the Child Services investigator takes a cookie. When Charlie, Marvin and Phil ask for privacy to discuss the missing child Flash, the investigator is holding the cookie. The scene looks at the puppet show and then back to the investigator putting the cookie in his breast pocket. The scene moves back to the puppet show and immediately back to the investigator who now has the cookie back in his hand again.
• Continuity: When they are taking applications at the "lemonade stand", Crispin kicks Charlie's left ankle but when Charlie reaches down to rub his ankle he grabs his right.
• Continuity: When Charlie and Phil are wrestling dressed like vegetables, Charlie takes a chunk out of Phil's Carrot suit. In the next shot, the carrot suit to be undamaged.
• Continuity: When Ben is sitting down having cereal at the beginning the film he is sitting with both legs up on the chair. In the next shot both legs are dangling down off the chair.
• Continuity: During the lightsabre fight between Marvin and the kids Marvin grabs one of the lightsabres and reacts as if it burns him. In the wide shot Marvin grabs a green lightsabre, however in the close up it is now a blue lightsabre he is holding.
• Continuity: When Charlie notices Ben is using his notes as napkins, he takes them away leaving Ben no napkins. But then when Kim is talking to Charlie about the orientation, in the background, there is a napkin for Ben.
• Continuity: When the social service working is having Charlie sign the papers (that are cut up like dolls) he takes out his pen the first time he tell Charlie to sign, and right before he tells him again what to sign he takes out his pen again.
• Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Marvin, a supposedly devout Star Trek fan, says that a Star Trek memorabilia store had "a tricorder used by Ensign Riley in 'The Doomsday Machine'." This is a reference to Kevin Riley, who was a Lieutenant, not an Ensign. He also only appeared in two episodes of the first season of the original series Star Trek, "The Doomsday Machine" episode was produced in the second season of the show.
• Revealing mistakes: When the child inspector comes and is offered a cookie, Charlie comes in with the tray and oven gloves on implying that the tray is hot. But on several occasions the tray is resting against his chest, like it isn't burning him.
