  • Daddy and Papa

    This 2002 documentary by Johnny Symons looks at four gay couples, among them himself and his partner, adopting children. more...
  • Daddy Day Camp

  • Daddy Day Care (PG)

    Eddie Murphy, who used to score points off Bill Cosby and Mr. Rogers, enlarged his profitable new sideline as a kiddie matinee idol (Dr. Dolittle) with this innocuous 2003 comedy about a marketing executive who gets laid off and decides to open a home day-care facility. more...
