Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Daddy Day Care

When Charlie (Eddie Murphy) and Phil (Jeff Garlin) lose their jobs at the advertising agency, they think of a crazy idea to run a day care facility out of Charlie's house. The idea is a good one because the only other logical alternative is at Chapman Academy, an expensive, fancy school, run by Miss Harridan (Anjelica Huston). They were totally unprepared for this chaos as ten children are tough to handle, especially for two Dads.
