SOME PEOPLE GAIN MOMENTUM from WINNING an OSCAR...SOME PEOPLE JUST CASH IN. GUESS WHICH GROUP CUBA GOODING JR. BELONGS IN?!?!?

10 YEARS AFTER HIS OSCAR for JERRY McGUIRE, APPARENTLY ALMOST NO ONE IS STILL WILLING to "SHOW CUBA the MONEY"...SO NOW HE's TUMBLED from HIS PREVIOUS RAZZIE®-NOMINATED ROLES in BOAT TRIP and RADIO to THIS WAY-WORSE  SEQUEL-SANS-IT's-ORIGINAL-STAR...WHICH IS a 2007 WORST PICTURE NOMINEE.

WHAT's HE GONNA DO for an ENCORE -- SET HIMSELF on FIRE??

GOODING: "Was that the camp sh*t-house exploding... or my career?!?!"

OK! ENOUGH! ENOUGH OF MAKING SEQUELS WITHOUT THE FIRST FILM'S MAIN STAR! FIRST WE GOT "EVAN ALMIGHTY" WITHOUT JIM CARREY AND IT WASN'T SO MIGHTY! NOW WE HAVE "DADDY DAY CAMP" WITHOUT EDDIE MURPHY AND IT DOESN'T EVEN LOOK CAMPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think "Daddy Day Camp" could be Ripoff of either "Meatballs" (LINK) or "Poison Ivy" (LINK)...

Response from Head RAZZberry: While DADDY DAY CAMP looks to be a likely contender for Worst Prequel or Sequel, I'm not so sure about it qualifying as a Remake/Rip-Off contender. There are certainly more obvious and egregious choices for that one (WHO'S YOUR CADDY springs to mind). And in the interest of RAZZing as many bad 2007 movies as we can (and we certainly have plenty to RAZZ this year!) I think maybe "double-dipping" by single titles in BOTH Prequel/Sequel and Remake/Rip-Off should probably not be encouraged...

Poor Cuba Gooding Jr......What happend? I mean, he went from winning an Academy Award to starring in "Razzie-tastic" movies like "Snow Dogs," "Boat Trip," and "Shadowboxer."

"Daddy Day Care" looks like one of those "Jim Carrey sequels" where they couldn't get the original stars, so they settled for mediocre actors instead. Hopefully, this one will bite the dust when it is released.

It seems that on every thread, someone mentions that the movie in discussion is a rip-off of something. Just because it is about summer camp doesn't mean it is a ripoff of any other movie about camp. It is just another summer camp comedy like all the ones before it...one that happens to look really crappy.

Movies at this level of mediocrity often use ideas already used in other movies, so it doesn't make much sense to call this a rip-off of other movies that are merely similar to it...

Don't say anything.  Let it speak for itself, which it certainly does and then some.

I think after winning that Oscar back in 1996, maybe Cuba just wanted to choose which movies to do, and not a lot of them have ended up being good at all. In fact, a lot of them have ended up being bad.

First of all, moviewizguy, Daddy Day Care was not good. Why a sequel was necessary is puzzling enough. But the really perplexing question is why Cuba Gooding is cleaning up after Eddie Murphy?

He has had many outstanding performances...Instinct, Men of Honor, Jerry McQuire and so on. I guess they all grab for the cash now and again. But there is almost no middle ground with this guy. Almost every role he takes either seems to be Oscar worthy or Razzie worthy. I think he needs to have a long talk with his agent...agents?

Cuba is now officially a joke. Whenever you're asked to fill in for a major star in a sequel that features no known actors, you should know your career is in trouble!!!

Wait HeadRAZZBerry, and everyone: Is Cuba Godding Jr. supposed to reprise Eddie Murphys role? Will they include a subplot where he wakes up one day and discovers that his skin color became lighter (not trying to be racist) he has a thin beard, and he's fatter? That he was changed by the Blue Fairy...and then they go into a fairy tale spoof (after "Happily N'Ever After" and "Drek the Third," we don't need that again in 2007!) 

With the way family entertainment's been going lately, I wouldn't be suprised! 

Response from Head RAZZberry: Out of morbid curiosity, I checked the credits on both DADDY DAY CAMP and DADDY DAY CARE on the IMDb. And, sure enough, the character played by Murphy in the first film, and by Gooding in this one, DO have the same name ("Charlie Hinton")...How lame!

Also, by the standards of the SHREK series, #3 was inferior. Sadly, by the standards of "family entertainment" in general of late, #3 was actually not that bad...

Cuba Gooding Jr is doing anything just to be in a lead role. Razz him good!

Saturnwatcher, I agree completely that a sequel to this was far from necessary, even if the first one was, in my opinion tolerable.  

Unfortunately the sad truth of why Cuba took this role, especially since it had been in developmental Hell for so long, was he probably needed a paycheck since nothing good has come his way in years.

You are right about one thing you said, He really should have a nice long talk with his agent(s) and stop doing all these Cheesy movies he has been doing of late.

It's early to be sure, but as of this afternoon (Wednesday) Daddy Day Camp is pitching a shut-out at RT. With 35 reviews recorded, it is at 0%. I'd say if you want to see this one, you better do it quickly before it disappears under an avalanche of Razzies.

Here is the start of a negative review I found in this morning's edition of Contra Costa Times.

'Camp' not Gooding enough
  • Tasteless sequel to 2003 hit a not-so-smart addition to Oscar winner's resume
  • By Rick Bentley

    MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

    "Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin must be the smartest men in the entertainment world. The actors had enough brain cells to know that their "Daddy Day Care" was an unexpected hit in 2003. That meant pushing the premise for a sequel made about as much sense as wearing a meat bathing suit in a pool of piranhas."

    First, Jim Carrey for the sequels to his films (sans Ace Ventura 2), now Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin. Must be a pattern.

    The next two paragraphs go something like this:

    "Cuba Gooding Jr. and Paul Rae must be the dumbest men in entertainment. Gooding adds the "Daddy Day Care" sequel, "Daddy Day Camp," to a resume that includes "Rat Race," "Boat Trip" and "Norbit." These awful efforts have come along since he picked up the best supporting actor Oscar for his work in the 1996 film "Jerry Maguire." All actors make one or two mistakes. These four movies bring a rancid smell to Gooding's career that he'll have trouble getting rid of.

    Granted, Rae didn't have that great a career to start with. There is such a thing as pride in your work."

    The paper gave it DADDY a D-, by the way.
