Storyline

A mechanic (Idris Elba) enlists the help of a successful, but lonely, attorney (Gabrielle Union) while trying to win custody of his three daughters from his treacherous ex-wife and her larcenous boyfriend. Along the way, the working relationship between the blue collar dad and his uptown attorney grows into something more. This is a simple, touching story of two people trying to overcome their different backgrounds to find love, a down-on-his-luck man struggling to protect his children from abuse and neglect, and a community looking to purge itself from the criminals terrorizing their neighborhood.

Trivia

Monty's daughters' first names in the movie are their first names in real-life. They are also real-life sisters. See more »

Goofs

Monty tells Julia he is 34 years old. His oldest daughter Sierra is 12 years old. He was charged with rape and sentenced to 8 years of prison at the age of 18 so that means he got out of jail at 26 years old. If that's true, how is Sierra 12 years old? Unless, he was granted conjugal visits with Jennifer and she gave birth to Siera while Monty was in jail. See more »

Quotes

Julia: Hey, look, I try to support black owned business but this is absolutely ridiculous. Take me home now.

I Love The Movie
16 March 2007 | by jmtwin1See all my reviews

I guess I am one of the biggest dopes in this country, but I love Daddy's Little Girls. I have seen it three times already. I loved Gabrielle Union and she played the part well. Idris Elba was good too! I liked the fact that Tyler Perry omitted the Madea character this time, nice change. I enjoyed seeing familiar faces in this movie, which added a nice touch. I cannot complain Mr. Perry did a pretty good job and I am looking forward seeing another movie or play. My money was well spent and I don't feel guilty. If you are in the mood for a little drama, comedy and romance, then this is the movie to see. I guarantee you will enjoy it.
