Film: Daddy Day Care
Year: 2003
Genre: Comedy, Family

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdmbtyEtU8s

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

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Having been unwell for the last week I thought I would cheer myself up by watching Nanny McPhee, this is a film which was a big part of my childhood and never fails to make me happy.

I think that by showing how bad the children are at the start of the film is key for this movie but also getting to understand that they are only being bad in order to get their father's attention as they don't get any now that their mother has died. By having Nanny McPhee as someone who understands this but helps to teach the children how to be polite, go to bed when they are asked and more some without her intentions she really helps to change the children and make them into a happy family. I also th…
