DADDY'S LITTLE GIRLS MOVIE POSTER
DADDY'S LITTLE GIRLS
Movie Reviews

Directed by Tyler Perry
Starring: Gabrielle Union, Louis Gossett Jr.br>Review by Popcorn Boys



SYNOPSIS:

A reverse-Cinderella tale centers on a successful attorney (Union) who falls in love with a financially challenged mechanic (Elba) who is a single father of three children. The relationship hits a snag when the mechanics ex-wife comes back into his life and threatens to take away their kids.

Robert's Review

"Daddy's Little Girls" is an amazing family drama. Monty (Idris Elba) is the single father of three daughters. He's poor, living in the projects and just trying to make ends meet. He works very hard as an auto mechanic, alongside Willie (Louis Gossett Jr.), and dreams of one day buying the shop from Willie if he can ever save up enough money. His neighbors often watch the girls while he's working, since Monty is soon forced into getting a 2nd job to pay the bills. He starts chauffeuring corporate executives and he becomes the driver for a hard-nosed lawyer named Julia (Gabrielle Union). Soon, Monty's life spirals way out of control when an accident at home hurts one of his daughters. Child Protective Services gets involved and decides that since Monty is rarely home due to working so much, and because an accident like that could have killed his children, that custody shall be given to the children's mother.

Monty and the girls greatly protest this decision, but CPS won't listen. They don't believe the truth about the mother. She's the local drug kingpin's girlfriend and she's a vile tyrant who cares for nobody but herself. She hasn't been in these girl's lives for years, but all of a sudden, she wants to take them away from their loving father and make them miserable, teaching them things like: selling drugs is good and that's how you make it in this world, threatening to literally kill their father if they don't do what they're asked to do, teaching them that that violence and threats are good for them because it'll toughen them up and it will prepare them for the "real world." Monty tries everything he can do get his daughters back, including hiring Julia as his attorney, but the process is slow and his daughters are being abused at home by their mother and her drug dealing boyfriend… and when Monty reaches the breaking point… he decides to do what is right, even if the legal systems isn't behind him… he MUST protect his daughters.

"Daddy's Little Girls" is by far one of the best movies of 2007 and it's also one of the best family dramas I've seen in several years. The chemistry between the characters, the storyline, and the acting performances were all fantastic. The main problem with this movie is that is wasn't marketed very well and therefore is doomed to fall into obscurity. "Daddy's Little Girls" was marketed as a romantic comedy, but there isn't much comedy in the story – It's a straight-up family drama. So, audiences who expected comedy would be sorely disappointed. However, as a family drama, "Daddy's Little Girls" is a must-see movie and well worth the ticket price. It's emotionally moving and I thoroughly enjoyed the interesting story, the character development and the casting. I'd love to go see this on the big screen again and take some more friends with me. It's sad that the marketing job that was done on this movie was so terrible – the only way for this movie to do well now is for moviegoers to spread the word themselves via word-of-mouth.

All in all, I'd give this movie 5 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: HIGH

Brett's Review

I really didn't know much about this movie before I went to see it; however it turned out to be one of the best movies I have yet to see this year. "Daddy's Little Girls" is a great movie that shows the struggle of a single father, Monty (Idris Elba), is a garage mechanic who lives in a poor neighborhood and struggles to make ends meet as he raises his three young daughters on his own. But when the courts award custody of his daughters to his corrupt, drug-dealing ex-wife (Tasha Smith) and her abusive boyfriend, Monty desperately tries to win them back, enlisting the help of Julia (Gabrielle Union), a beautiful--and hard-nosed--attorney he meets during his short stint as a chauffeur. While Monty and the Ivy-League-educated Julia couldn't be less alike, an unexpected romance blossoms--and it soon begins to feel like true love. But in order for their relationship to survive, the couple must reconcile their two very different worlds--and overcome the forces that threaten to tear Monty's family apart.

I was very impressed with Tyler Perry and I want to go back to see some of the other movies he has done. I really enjoyed the story and character development, the chemistry between the kids and Monty was excellent. The story and plot were brilliantly done, and it was very consistent. The movie itself is a mix between a feel-good type and an inspirational type. The relationship that develops between Monty and Julia was really well done, and the final confrontation between Monty and his ex near the end of the movie was excellent.

Overall Rating: 4 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (A definite purchase on DVD).
