A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Daddy Daughter Trip is a comedy starring Rob Schneider about a 2nd grader (Miranda Scarlett Schneider, Schneider's real daughter) who wants to experience a fun-filled spring break with her family and winds up on a wild adventure with her dad. The movie includes a multitude of mishaps and violent injuries that are meant to be funny, including getting run over by a car, teeth getting knocked out, and a finger dismemberment. Parents should be aware there's also a plethora of fart jokes and insults such as "jerk" and "butt wipe." Though Larry is a well-intentioned man, he often makes poor choices while trying to help or impress his daughter, and they often include dangerous acts. Despite this, he still encourages her to never give up on her dreams and the movie still manages to subtly promote family time and friendship.

Is It Any Good?
In this goofy, potty-humor-filled family comedy, viewers embark on a Daddy Daughter Trip with Rob Schneider and his daughter, navigating the comical mishaps of Larry Bublé, a well-meaning but bumbling father. Larry's eccentric creations, including the peculiar hula poop, set the tone for the movie's offbeat humor. As the duo attempts a spring break beyond their means, their encounters with famous travel bloggers add another layer of randomness to the plot.
While Larry's genuine love for his daughter shines through, the film's numerous subplots often feel disjointed, leaving the audience with a sense of chaos rather than cohesion. Despite Arizona's scenic attractions featured in the backdrop, the narrative struggles to find its footing. The heavy reliance on slapstick injuries and humor might leave some viewers wincing rather than laughing, contributing to the film's overall sense of disarray.
