Audience Reviews for Daddy's Little Girls

    The one and only Tyler Perry film that I have seen and I hope I don't end up seeing many. This paint by numbers effort translates bad rom com to the black community.

    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. And this is a movie that should have emotion. The fight scene at the end between Monty and the gangsters was laughable. Even thought this is a comedy I don't believe I was supposed to laugh at that scene. I would recommend this to women that basically would watch anything that would make them cry.

    The critics may have hated it but I for one loved this film. An exceptionally well acted and thought of dramatic story with tangible emotive performances and a very well thought out script. Although there were a few "Hollywood touches" that bypassed alot of the judicial practices in this film, if you take it for the raw power the lead actors possessed whilst playing their parts, you forget that this film is ultimatley about law. The good ol' race card was played heavily in this movie but in fairness to Perry, its a card worth playing. A very good film indeed.

    Seriously this was a good movie. I liked the dating part most. It was funny. And also loved the part where a father can do anything for his children. The little one was cute. Liked her attitude. The story is very touchy. It will bring you to tears and make you angry at the same time (especially where the so-called mother humiliates her husband). Honestly I didn't like Jennifer (Tasha Smith) and her boyfriend. It was <i>disturbing</i>. I highly recommend you to watch.
