Daddy Day Care
When Charlie Hinton and his friend, Phil, lose their jobs, they becomes stay at home dad and decide to open a daycare service to make ends meet. But with their unconventional tactics to approaching learning, the dads soon find themselves the unlikely competition to the rigid, Chapman Academy, run by Gwyneth Harridan. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Daddy Day Care”.

∙ At the very beginning of the movie Ben is shown getting out of bed. He is showing putting his teddy bear on the floor to his right when he puts on his bedroom shoes. It cuts to a wider view and the teddy bear is on Ben’s left side.

∙ When Charlie, Kim and Ben are touring Chapman Academy, Charlie gets two calls. When Charlie gets the second message, Kim tells him to “go ahead”. In the close-up view, he’s shown shutting the lid on the pager. But when Charlie walks up to Ms. Harridan the pager is open and he shuts it again.

∙ Marvin is dressed as Darth Vader, battling with light sabers with the children. At one point, when he’s being swamped by the kids, he can be seen grabbing a green light saber in the wide view. It then cuts to a close-up of Marvin who is now holding a blue one.

∙ Charlie and Phil are entertaining the kids by dressing up in the broccoli and carrot costumes. When the two begin to wrestle, the pieces of broccoli on the “mat” switch position from being next to the side to in the middle throughout the scene.

∙ Mr. Kubitz has arrived at the daycare center just before the kids see the puppet show. He comes outside while Charlie, Phil and Marvin are talking. At first Mr. Kubitz is holding a cookie. When they introduce him to the children, he reaches inside the coat pocket and his hands are empty. A few moments later the cookie is back in his hand.

∙ During the puppet show, Becca is sitting to the right of the screen next to Dylan. But when the two dolls kiss, Becca is now sitting to the left of the screen. The girl who was originally sitting on that side has now switched places with her.
