13. Daddy Day Care
So this is what I watched yesterday. I came home for a variety of reasons and I ended up sitting down and watching this. Again, I’m a fan of Doug Loves Movies and Doug recently had Jeff Garlin on his podcast. At one point they discuss that he was in Daddy Day Care.
I like the movie. I mean it is what it is, a family film. A lot of people like dissing these movies and I guess I don’t really know why. Of course they aren’t The Godfather, but they aren’t all shit. Some are, but so are some adult films as well.
Anyway, I think Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin did a good job and the movie. Same with Steve Zahn. They’re all funny guys and while it isn’t their normal schtick, they do a good job. I mean again it’s a family movie and it works as one.
If your looking to see Beverly Hills Cop or Raw you won’t find it. Murphy is still a good actor, but the material doesn’t allow him to dwell where those hits hide.
I’m going to be posting again today to give my Oscar Picks since those are tonight.
