Potty humor abounds in this movie. Farting and pooping and gross out jokes made the 8 nine year olds we went with roar with laughter. THere may be some language people don't like -- butthead etc. -- but on the whole, the positive role model of two caring dads doing what moms do advocating more fun and less "get ahead quick" thinking was refreshing and great for the boys to see. Eddie Murphy is just a riot. My husband hates these kind of movies and even he laughed. So did our 13 year old daughter. Fun for the family even if it wasn't an Oscar contender.
Movie shows "dads" in a positive light, caring and sensitive to their kids
My daughter and I enjoyed this movie. I was cautious at first, Mr.Murphy has been known to have a terrible "potty" mouth. But not true in this film. We enjoyed it, entertaining, funny and a good message about dads, shows them as caring and sensitive to the needs of their kids, it did not show the "moms" putting down their husbands, there was some potty humor, but it was not overt and it is true to real life...I'll see it again...
There is a lot of potty humour...which is great!! Nothing scary. The only hurting part was a man getting his fingers clipped by scissors, but it didn't show any blood and he didn't have to go to the hospital.
Parents need to know that this is about a man (played by Eddie Murphy the comedian) who is losing money and has to pay for his house. He sets up a Day Care for young children - which are a big handful! The language, I would rate it about 3 bars instead of 2. Children do use mild words, like "This cereal sucks!" They turn Veggie-O's into "Veggie-Blows.) Profanity is also used. Murphy's character says "S--t" when they are being chased by the police. He tries to spell "f--k" to fool his younger son, but his wife stops him. That's about it.
