My Review:
Having noticed that Daddy Day Care had been put on Netflix and I had not seen it in years I could not resist but to watch it.

The film is about a man who after being fired from work alongside his friend thinks about how there is no affordable day care services so decides to make one with the help of his former colleague. However, when the most expensive day-care center comes after them will they be able to keep their business open?

I find this film really entertaining and shows the differences that children have and how life is not easy for the parents either. This does make a character for everyone and you can care about all of the characters easily throughout the movie as well. This is due to great acting from all of the cast and one that would make the whole family happy about what they are watching. As you see the children grow the watcher is also on that journey and feels proud of the different characters for what they have accomplished. I do feel that with the added competition trying to bring down the day-care center the dads have made makes you realise that not everything in life is easy and obstacles will get in the way however if you put your mind to it anything is possible, which is a great message for children.

I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a family movie for everyone in the family including younger audiences. Not only this but for those who like Eddie Murphy as an actor this is not a movie you want to miss out on.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
