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" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079540/ - LINK ) or "Poison Ivy" ( http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0089820/ - 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 ( http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=2036&PN=1 - 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...

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?

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  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462244/ - DADDY DAY CAMP  and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317303/ - 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...

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.

    As of 08/09/2007 8:42AM (California Time) The Reviews are 40 out of 41 Rotten at http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/daddy_day_camp/ - RT  , Cuba should crawl under his bed sheets and die of shame. I hate to say it, but the people who made this waste of celluloid should have released it without a press screening, because right now this thing is already DOA. 

    Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, this was released without press screenings. Locally, the L.A. TIMES still hasn't printed a review (I expect it may be in tomorrow's paper). The bulk of the early, nasty reviews were from on-line critics, but with print critics added in today, the numbers at RT are staying consistently in the "It's Gotta Be a Contender" range of Under 5% Approval...

    I found out this morning that "Daddy Day Camp" was Directed by Fred Savage (of "Wonder Years" fame). Guess Kevin Arnold might get his first Razzies Nomination for Worst Director...wonder what his older self would say about that??

    Response from Head RAZZberry: To keep track of all the drek we ought to be considering each year, I keep a running list of potential contenders -- And, yes, Fred Savage, Cuba Gooding Jr. and DADDY DAY CAMP are all prominently included in that list!

    This movie has apparently hit it's high water mark at 2% at Rotten Tomatoes....I think we have an early favorite here....

    Now, as much time as we spend talking about bad movies, let me throw a plug for a pretty good one that is going to get overlooked by most movie goers. An Arctic Tale is a wonderful family film released by the National Geographic people. It isn't March of the Penguins by any stretch of the imagination, but it's well worth passsing some time with on a hot summer day. Go take a look.

    I think we should give Cuba Gooding, Jr. a good measure of discernment.

    Short of that, nominate him in as many categories as he would fit in. I'd
    imagine that the more categories he's in, the more press he would receive,
    the more likely the message will get across.

    You're better than this, Cuba!

    List his separate performances in their respective categories. AMPAS may comit category fraud sometimes, but that doesn't mean we have to. I don't like it when you group all of an actors bad performances from the year into one category. I think its cheap and it reduces their chance of winning. Like Angelina Jolie in 2004: She should have been placed supporting and won for her horrible performance in Alexander. Also, I find it odd that Melanie Griffith and Alicia Silverstone got double nodded in the 90s but Ashton Kutcher, Angelina Jolie, Hilary duff and Rob Schnieder had their performances grouped together in the 2000s.



    Posted By: saturnwatcher
    Date Posted: August 26 2007 at 7:49am

    Maybe some consideration should be given to creating a yearly "Body of Work"  category. Individual performances can be listed in specific categories, but when and actor or actress pulls two or more bad performances in a year (are you listening, Tim Allen?) they could still be in jeopardy of recogition from this body.

    While I have the floor for a moment, I want to get something off my chest about Hollywood credibility. Yesterday I went to see Resurrecting the Champ. Not a bad movie all in all especially considering its release in the late August graveyard.

    The film was set here in Denver, and a few minutes of it were actually filmed here. Just so we locals would recognize the fact, the main character was driving into downtown across I-25 at one point, and passed by Coors Field a few seconds later. Puzzlingly enough, most of the Denver P.D. wasn't in hot pursuit, given the speed he would have had to achieve to accomplish that. There was also a cameo by Denver's most celebrated icon, John Elway. Darn, it's hard to miss a guy when he won't go away.

    Anyway, what is bugging me is that this film is supposedly based on a true story.  BUT, the true story involved an L.A. sports writer named J.R. Moehringer. The main character in this film was named Eric Kernan. Obviously the true story was set in L.A. This one was mysteriously moved to Denver, and  utilized a fictious newspaper. How are we supposed to appreciate the fact that this is supposedly based on a "true" story when everything in it is basically b.s.?

    1.) It wasn't funny

    2.) It wasn't funny

    4.) It wasn't funny

    5.) oh yea...It was awful

    Although it is funny that Eddie Murphy "won" every Worst Acting Razzie that didn't go to Lindsay Lohan, I still think "Eddie Murphy surrogate" Cuba Gooding Junior should have gotten our Worst Actor trophy. After all, he was not only awful in DADDY DAY CAMP, he was dually nominated for appearing alongside Murphy in NORBIT as well...

    Sometimes actors in remakes and sequels say they try not to act the same way the predecessor did.If Cuba had been more like Eddie maybe this wouldn't have been so bad.And the other guys were just there,unlike Jeff Garlin and Steve Zahn who are funny enough for people to notice them when they appear.

    Man, what a terrible movie! Jumping into a river of acid would be better than watching this!
     
    The goo-Oh f*ck this movie!
     
    The bad:
     
    Paul Rae: Rae is bland. No! Calling him bland would be an insult to Robert Pattinson! At least he's honest about how terrible Twilight is and how he's only doing it for money and the chance to tap Kristen Stewart. But seriously, his performance is terrible!
     
    Kevin Arnold: Winnie's a brilliant (and hot!) mathematician. What have you done with your life Mr. Arnold?
     
    Yet another unintentionally inappripriate poster!: To be fair to this poster, it doesn't threaten disgusting animal sex: it threatens torture! Here's a link to it: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2845086464/tt0462244 - http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2845086464/tt0462244 . Look at Cuba's face and the faces of the children. Those are the faces of children who have parents that let them watch both Hostel movies and Cuba knows it!
     
    The ugly:
     
    Lochlyn Munro: I'd say that this is his worst movie, but he was in Dirty Love and as bad as this was, at least there wasn't a scene were Cuba periods all over a store in this! Munro is just obnoxious in this and his performance is terrible!
     
    The script: I could go into detail, but it would probably end with me wanting to do to the writers what those kids are going to do to Cuba in that poster!
     
    Cuba Gooding Jr.: I've never actually seen Jerry Maguire for which Cuba won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Considering that it was directed by Cameron Crowe, king of the douches, I probably won't like it. This has causes me to not get pissed-off by his acting choices of late. But, this is just too much! I'd say that he deserved a Worst Actor Razzie, but Norbit was much, much worse!

    I was going to make a joke about Radio being smarter than Cuba, but that I considered that too offensive... to Radio! Grade: F
     
    Next-up: The Last Airbender!

    1)One of the kids has "CHANDLER BING's sex face".So this poster is also about rape.
    2)Why does it say "From the studio that brought you DADDY DAY CARE",if this is the sequel?

    He's also been in DANCE FLICK,DECK THE HALLS,LITTLE MAN,THE BENCHWARMERS,WHITE CHICKS,FREDDY VS JASON,A GUY'S THING,DRACULA 2000 and A NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY.

    Just to clarify,is he actually famous,or just a character actor?

    Why is he "the king of douches"?

    I didn't like Daddy Day care, but it wasn't bad enough to get a review.
     
    I don't watch Friends so I didn't notice that. As for why it says the studio that brought you Daddy Day Care, I think it says that because almost no-one from the first one was involved and they needed some way to tie it to the first one.
     
    Lochlyn Munro isn't famous or a character actor: he's just a guy that worms his way into terrible movies. Also, according to imdb and Wikipedia, he was in Unforgiven, one of my favorite movies, but he's billed WAY low!
     
    Cameron Crowe is the king of douches because every movie that I've seen from him gives off the impression that he thinks he's better than us. This was exemplified best with Almost Famous and Elizabethtown. Although, to be fair, I'm not sure if he's really the best choice for king of the douches. Alan Ball and Richard Kelly are pretty douchey themselves!

    So...it was a masterpiece compared to this one?

    It's really really hard when someone wants to make a point in a movie without being pretentious.

    I don't really remember a pretentious vibe from ALMOST FAMOUS(7/10)or THE BOX.

    As for AMERICAN BEAUTY(9/10),well,that was 1999,when pro-gay propaganda was called "pro-gay messageS".Today it can be propaganda.Just ask Ryan Murphy.Something I really liked from TRUE BLOOD was that vampires represented any kind of minorities("They have the right to drink a bottle of artificial blood as much as you and I have to drink beer".),but as the show has progressed,they've been representing just gays("Don't you know it's a sin to bang one of them fangers?")...or maybe it has always been that way and I didn't notice.

    True Blood's always been that way. There was an early episode that featured a church with a sign in front that says: "God hates fangs." Personally, I've always found that metaphor to be idiotic: when was the last time you heard of a gay person draing the blood out of someone? The same goes for X-Men.

    Also, Ryan Murphy is a good candidate for king of the douches. Mainly for his reaction to Kings Of Leon not wanting their songs on Glee.

    Yes, the use of supernatural or paranormal beings as a metaphor for hatred towards homosexuals or ethnic groups is quite tiresome, and even laughable at times. There's a big world of difference between being sexually attracted to a person of the same gender and/or being able to shoot laser beams from your eyes!
     
    PS: Why all the hate for Cameron Crowe? Michael Bay comes across 100 times more of an a-hole than Crowe does. Bay comes across as "Yeah, you know my movie is going to be $hit, but you're going to see it anyway and make me even richer, just to further prove that you don't need talent to make movies ... and that's me!"

    Call me crazy,but I look at it this way:In TRUE BLOOD,people let vampires bite them.It hurts but at the same time it gives them pleasure.Sounds familiar?

    No,I don't think he's a douche.He's just always pushing his agenda down our throats.And most times I don't even think he's right:
    -He thinks that when 2 male buddies tease each other saying "What are you,a fag?" is exactly as bad as insulting a gay guy.
    -He thinks that if a gay guy gets bullied for cross-dressing,and the gay guy knows he'll get bullied,he should express himself with something as meaningless as fashion instead of not throwing wood to the fire.
    -He thinks if a gay person is having any kind of discussion,is OK for them to play the victim over being gay,even if it has nothing to do with the fight.
    I would bet anything that KURT HUMMELL is 100% based on him.

    I never said that Bay wasn't a douche. It's just that Bay and Crowe are two different types of douche. Bay's your basic a-hole jock douche, while Crowe's an up-his-own-ass douche. I generally find the up-your-own-ass douche to be more annoying.
     
    I'd have to say that Crowe's douchiest moment is a deleted scene from Almost Famous. In the scene, the Cameron Crowe stand-in convinces his mom to let him write for Rolling Stone by playing Stairway To Heaven for her. The whole scene was just them listening to Stairway To Heaven. Who films a scene like that? If you want to highlight a song, have it play over a scene or, at the very least, get a performer to sing it*; don't just play the song on a record! Thankfully, the scene was deleted because they couldn't get the rights to play it. So, if you watch the deleted scene on DVD, it's just them listening to nothing.
     
    *Like Crowe did in Singles.

    I will admit, "Almost Famous" was nothing more than Crowe's love letter to himself.
