    This movie was so different from Perry's usual style that I was thoroughly impressed. Elba and Union were just terrific. However, I really wish that the movie would have included how 'Julia's' friends dealt with her decision to go with her heart and not her socioeconomic status.

    A romantic gem. One of the best african american comedy-romances of all time.

    This movie showed that Tyler Perry can go beyond the silliness of the Medea films. Not to knock them, there were excellent films with a message and humor. But this one puts the plight of a strong black man in the forefront. Yes it maybe a repeative theme, but it works and the uplifting message is always a plus.

    I enjoyed everything about this movie. It's teaches us to humble ourselves in any situation that pertains to everyday life. Every movie Tyler directs, or acts in are always real issue and are benefical. Keep up the good work and continue seeking God's face for more wisdom to reach the African American communites. This movie demostrates their are descent black men who take care I enjoyed everything about this movie. It's teaches us to humble ourselves in any situation that pertains to everyday life.

    Give credit to Tyler Perry for not glamorizing drug dealing, criminal activities, selfish actions and the like. Tyler Perry advocates practical Christian and family values, and it ends up making a masterpiece! I love this movie as well as every other Tyler Perry films!

    Movie was not well scripted. Too predictable, not enough details to back up story. Very bad acting from most of the characters.

    The movie was mediocre at best...Tyler's in yo face theater screen antics, and melodramatic, exaggerated characters sometime gets embarassing. The poor dialogue and sloppy scene transition loses and bores you into looking for other good points about the movie. It's your average black cliche movie about a down and out black person rising above adversity with sermons and speeches The movie was mediocre at best...Tyler's in yo face theater screen antics, and melodramatic, exaggerated characters sometime gets embarassing.

    An inspiring well thought out film. To bad that's all it has going for it. Tyler Perry should stick to comedies, as if that still does him good. There was no real plot build-up to this one. Everything was also fasted pasted, which is not good for a movie that has a sub genre of drama. With poor performances by the cast there was no real emotion to this movie.

    Without Gabrielle Union and Idris Elba, this movie would have been a 5 or lower. That said, the movie plays out like a tv sitcom that has pretty decent scenes that do not come together as a whole. There is no real sense of true progression or continuity through the whole film. There is a deeper level (iGabrielle Union and Idris Elba. .e. the messages and themes) that Perry doesnt dig into Without Gabrielle Union and Idris Elba, this movie would have been a 5 or lower.

There is a deeper level (iGabrielle Union and Idris Elba. .e. the messages and themes) that Perry doesnt dig into - that if done corrrectly, would make this film GREAT. But Perry has a niche market and I'm sure he rather play it safe rather then alienate his audience. Still worth a look though, just to see Union and Elba. Expand

    sometimes tyler perry can be a screw in the head with his films like tempation . but this one is to evil getting divorced and letting the girls that you love go and you give the girls to a whore mother who slaps her child and smokes .

  1. Daddy's Little Girls may be heavy-handed and drearily predictable, but it also should connect with its core audience as solidly as Perry's previous efforts did, even if the drama is frequently just as over the top as its predecessors.

    Chockfull of cathartic moments, Perry's storytelling is best when it defies convention. Like the black man's Frank Capra, Perry tells stories in which every conflict is a test of faith and every victory a testament to the American underdog. Instead of following the proven formulas of screenwriting books, he earnestly shepherds his own messy structure.

    More surprising is Perry's inability to write back-and-forth dialogue with any real wit or verve. He is at his best when writing speeches, and some of the film's best moments come when Union is given snappy monologues on the state of contemporary relationships and African American maleness.
