    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.

    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!

  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.
