    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.

It's your average black cliche movie about a down and out black person rising above adversity with sermons and speeches exploiting black people short comings. Nothing was unpredictable abourt this feel good movie. Expand

    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

  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.
