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.Written by
Monty's daughters' first names in the movie are their first names in real-life. They are also real-life sisters. See more »
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 »
"Daddy's Little Girls" is a decent/good movie that could have been a great movie. I say that it is a decent movie because the overall plot was pretty solid and the acting was very good. However, it could have been a great film if the story could have been told with greater detail and the film had been better edited.
Let's put it this way, if T.P. were to have written this film as a school paper, the teacher would have given it a C+. The theme and concept for the paper would have been sound and offered lots of potential a solid B. However, due to punctuation errors, grammar errors, misspelled words and run-on sentences (For those who took English at Howard U instant D) .the teacher was being nice to give T.P. a C+.
T.P. has done only one great movie "Diary Of A Mad Black Woman". The second film was cute. This 3rd film was OK. I will give him the benefit of the doubt for this film, he probably has many other things that he is working on. However, for the next film, he better take the time to write, direct and edit a high quality product.
