Continuity mistake: On the first day of Daddy Day Care, the kids are all shown sitting on the stairs listening to Charlie's speech. Flash is sitting in the front row at a fair distance from Becca. Then Charlie hands out the mission statements, and Flash is suddenly right next to Becca. There would have been no time for him to move closer.

Continuity mistake: After the day care centre opens, Phil is playing/singing Rhinestone Cowboy on the guitar. The girl in the polka-dot dress and the boy in the red "1985" T-shirt change positions between shots. She is behind him in the front shot, and in front of him in the rear shot.

Continuity mistake: The third time the child services inspector shows up, Phil answers the door wearing excessive make-up, which was the result of a practical joke. In the first few shots , Phil's make-up is actually rather neat, with blue eye shadow, eye glitter, lipstick, etc. But after they enter the house seconds later, the lipstick is messier, the eyeshadow is smudged under his eyes, and the glitter nearly disappears.

Continuity mistake: A few minutes into the movie when they are discussing who will wear the broccoli costume, a woman with black hair and blue blouse is holding two cups of coffee, sits down and hands one cup to a man. A few seconds later she is still holding both cups and walking toward the table. (00:04:20)

Continuity mistake: The third time the child services inspector comes, Charlie sees Phil wearing the make-up and drops most the cookies he was carrying, leaving only a few left in the tray. Throughout the scene, the remaining cookies change number and location on the tray.

Continuity mistake: When the contest ends and everyone celebrates, a guy with fuzzy hair next to Charlie falls on the floor, yet a frame later he is up and jumping around.

More quotes from Daddy Day Care

Question: Can anyone tell me what some of the Klingon phrases mean?

Answer: When the kid goes up to Marvin and talks to him, he says "Klingo Mach" or something. That means "you speak Klingon?" Then the kid says "Egchad" which means "yes". That thing with the hands means hello or goodbye depending when you use it.
