The main early evening movie on Showtime tonight is Daddy Day Care,
starring Eddie Murphy. Eddie and a mate are retrenched and start a day
care business at home while mummy lawyer works. Nice harmless fun,
except for one thing: why did the producers use the song 123, by the Jackson Five, with lead vocals sung by a very young Michael Jackson, as the music over the end and closing credits?

The movie was made in 2003.
