Daddy Daycare is now a success so it's time to take the kids to camp. This summer is going to be in tents! Get the review of Daddy Day Camp here!

Cuba Gooding Jr. brings the sequel to Daddy Day Care outdoors. See what happens when a clueless Cuba tries to run a summer camp. Kidzworld checks out whether this sequel lives up to the first!

Getting Even

Charlie Hinton's (Cuba Gooding Jr.) son Ben (Spencir Bridges) has grown up since his father opened Daddy Day Care several years ago. Now, Ben wants to go to summer camp. Charlie is hesitant to let Ben go though, because when he was a kid, he was humiliated at camp by a bully named Lance Warner (Lochlyn Munro). When Charlie finds out Lance now runs the camp that Ben wants to go to, he refuses to let his son be exposed to the same negative experience. In response, he decides to purchase and run the struggling camp next door.

In Over Their Heads

Charlie and his business partner Phil (Paul Rye) find out that running a camp is much different and much harder than running a daycare. Neither Charlie or Phil knows much about the great outdoors or being a camp counselor. To make matters worse, the bank is threatening to close down the camp unless they are able to make money. It doesn't help that the new camp is constantly getting harassed by Lance's camp. Charlie finally reaches out for help as he brings in his father (Richard Gant), who is an outdoor expert and has a military background.

Family Relations

The heart of the story lies between both father-son relationships. Charlie and his father have been at odds with each other ever since he was a kid. Things are not much better between Charlie and his son. Ben doesn't exactly respect him and looks up to his grandfather instead. Can this summer camp bring everyone together?

DVD Features

The Daddy Day Camp has a few extra features, like a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the movie and What I Learned at Camp, an interactive quiz on trivia from the flick. Both features are kind of lame, so you're unlikely to watch them more than once.

Bottom Line

In Daddy Day Camp, Charlie Hinton's character is slightly different from Daddy Day Care. Cuba Gooding Jr. plays the role in the sequel, whereas Eddie Murphy played it in the first installment - so you have two completely different acting styles. Comedy is not exactly Cuba's forte, but Lance Warner and some of the campers provide plenty of laughs for this movie. It also has an interesting storyline and most importantly, a good message! We say Daddy Day Camp is a winner!

Daddy Day Camp Rating:4

    "Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their perfect lives." It's based off the book series by the same name and it's these girls that get tormented by "A" and it's like a mystery. You'd probably want to start from the beginning or it'd be hard to understand, it's on Netflix.
