Revealing mistake: When Mr. Kubitz arrives at the house and finds Phil with makeup on, a car is driving by in the background. A few seconds go by before the shot goes back to Mr. Kubitz - plenty of time for the car to have driven out of shot. But when Mr. Kubitz is shown at the doorway again, the car is still there, driving along.
Continuity mistake: When they are first signing up people for the daycare, they get to the little girl with all the allergies. As the girl and her mother are listing all her allergies, Eddie Murphy has his hands by his chin not writing down anything, in the next shot he suddenly has a pen in his hand.
Continuity mistake: When Charlie and his son are sitting at the table having breakfast, Charlie puts his fist to the side of his face, and his son copies. In the shot of both of them, his son's hand isn't a complete fist, he still has his fingers pointing out, but in the next shot of just him, his hand is a complete fist.
Plot hole: It's amazing that the two Chapman women weren't caught at "Rock for Daddy Day Care". One of them unzips a guy's dog costume in the middle of the path with everyone walking by. A little kid actually stares right at her when she does this. Also when Jenny puts the cockroaches in the salad, the people who were waiting in line for food would definitely have seen her. There are many more parts like this.
Audio problem: At the end of the film, when Ms. Harridan is working as a police officer, the whistle drops from her mouth in astonishment when she sees that her former employee Jenny now works for Daddy Day Care. She never puts it back into her mouth, but then when she tries to stop a green minivan from going to Daddy Day Care we hear the sound of her whistle.
Factual error: There's a mistake when Charlie is reading "Green Eggs and Ham" to the kids. Right after reading "I do not like them here or there, I do not like them anywhere.", he shows them a picture of that character holding a fist and says "He was gonna punch Sam I am". The picture he showed them is not on the same page as that line in the book "Green Eggs and Ham". It only comes in about ten pages later.
Other mistake: Many of the lines that Charlie reads from "Green Eggs and Ham" don't match the actual book. For instance, he says "Would you like to eat them here or there?" when in the book it states "Would you like them here or there"?. Also in the next line he reads "I would not like them anywhere" when it really says "I would not like them here or there, I would not like them anywhere".
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.
Plot hole: Near the end of the movie the original two "Daddies" from Daddy Day Care show up at Chapman Academy. Miss Harridan seems surprised to see the main Daddy (Charlie Hinton) show up while she is in the middle of talking with potential customers about what her academy has to offer. Following his speech he then proceeds to take a large group of them away from Chapman Academy to Daddy Day Care without any paperwork needing to be filled out or without any written consent from the parents. How can one day care just take children from another day care like that? The shot was uncut so confirmation of parental consent didn't happen between the time he showed up and the time he left with the kids.
