Daddy Day Camp | 2007 | PG | - 3.3.3
The successful Daddy Day Care business is carried over to summer day camp when one of the owners remembers what a horrible camping experience he had as a boy and wants to prevent his young son from suffering the same disappointment. But without any knowledge of the outdoors and with decrepit facilities, the experience proves near catastrophic. With Cuba Gooding Jr., Lochlyn Munro, Paul Rae, Richard Gant and Spencir Bridges. Directed by Fred Savage. [1:25]

A piece of wood is flung into a man's crotch and the force pushes him to the ground (he lies on the ground moaning briefly).

► A bus without brakes crashes into a building (we see rubble but no one is injured). A boy kicks the door of a shack causing the walls to collapse (no one is injured).
► Men threaten each other, to beat each other in competition, in a few scenes. Several boys tease another boy about being small in stature. We hear that children played in poison ivy and see a boy with red patches on his face. We hear that there is a problem with a build up of methane gas in an outhouse and that it could be dangerous.
► A boy playing a video game says, "Die scum, die." A father tells his son, "Don't make anyone bleed" as he boards the bus to summer camp.
► A man holds onto the bumper of a jeep as it drives away, dust is thrown in his face and he lets go. A man falls through a roof while trying to repair it (we hear him yell).
► A boy breaks a water balloon filled with urine on another boy's head (the urine drips down over his face). A boy urinates in a potted plant (we hear the trickle and see the stream). A boy vomits on another boy and he and others fall into a puddle of mud. A boy vomits on a man's shoes (we hear loud gagging and goo splatter), and a boy vomits in a tent (we hear gagging and goo splatter and we see several drops on a man's head when he goes to investigate).
► A man grilling hamburgers squishes a fly on one of them (we see green goo on the meat), and another man picks up the burger and eats it not knowing a dead insect is on it. A man flatulates loudly in a couple of scenes.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
