Details Release Date: May 09, 2003; Rated: PG; Length: 93 Minutes; Genre: Comedy; With: Eddie Murphy; Distributor: Revolution Studios

The revelation that managing ad campaigns is easy but supervising nap time is hard isn't enough to sustain Eddie Murphy's unenlightened parent-and-kid comedy about the adventures of men, laid off from their jobs, who do the hard work of mommies. The subject couldn't be more timely -- or the film less delightful.
