Daddy Day Camp is a 2007 family comedy film directed by Fred Savage and starring Cuba Gooding Jr. The movie is a sequel to the 2003 film Daddy Day Care, but features a different cast and a new director. It tells the story of two friends, Charlie Hinton (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Phil Ryerson (Lochlyn Munro), who decide to take over a summer camp named Camp Driftwood with the help of their fathers. Charlie and Phil are both struggling to keep their careers afloat, but they decide to team up and run the summer camp to make some money. When they arrive at Camp Driftwood, they realize that it is run-down and in dire need of repairs. The camp's director, Colonel Buck Hinton (Richard Gant), who is also Charlie's father, is skeptical of their ability to turn the camp around, but agrees to give them a chance. The two friends, with the help of Colonel Buck, start working on the camp to restore it to its former glory. They hire new counselors and start planning activities for the children. However, their efforts are met with resistance from some of the campers who are used to the old ways of the camp. Additionally, the neighboring camp, Camp Canola, is also competing with them to be the best summer camp in the area. As the summer progresses, the campers start to bond with Charlie and Phil, and they begin to have fun and make memories. However, things take a turn for the worse when Phil's estranged father, Lance (Joshua McLerran), shows up at the camp. Lance is a successful businessman who wants to take over the camp and turn it into a spa resort. He convinces Phil to sell the camp to him, causing a rift between Phil and Charlie. In the end, the two friends learn the value of friendship, family, and teamwork when they come together to save the camp from being sold to Lance. They put on a last-minute talent show for the parents, showcasing the skills the kids have learned over the summer, and the parents are impressed. The future of Camp Driftwood looks bright as Charlie and Phil decide to continue running the camp. Overall, Daddy Day Camp is a heartwarming comedy that teaches valuable lessons about friendship, family, and teamwork. The chemistry between the cast members, especially Cuba Gooding Jr. and Lochlyn Munro, is excellent, and the humor is appropriate for all ages. The movie also features some beautiful outdoor shots of the camp, making it a visual treat for viewers. Despite receiving mixed reviews upon its release, Daddy Day Camp is a fun and entertaining movie for the whole family.
