Good family movie

Another funny comedy like Daddy Day Care.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Kids who still giggle at poop gags or the sight of adults acting silly will delight in the outdoor mayhem, but parents will find the over-the-top performances and too-familiar story disappointing. As for Gooding, one can only hope that the actor who wowed audiences and critics with his performances in Boyz N the Hood and Jerry Maguire can find his way again. This is an awful movie that's not worth watching.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
