Storyline
A mechanic (Elba) enlists the help of a successful-but-lonely attorney (Union) while trying to wrest custody of his three daughters from his treacherous ex-wife and her larcenous boy friend. 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.

Did You Know?

Trivia:
The first film that Tyler Perry has directed but not starred in.

Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Monty and Julia arrive at the club, they appear to be driving down (and parking on) on a one-way street, as the cars are all parked in the same direction that Monty's car was traveling. However, the four-lane road they are on has a double-yellow line in the middle, indicating a two-way street. Also, in the wide shot as the car comes to a stop, there are signal lights and street identification signs placed in a manner where the flow of traffic on this "one-way street" would not be able to see them unless they were traveling in the opposite direction.



User Review

It's Real Life

Rating: 9/10

Unlike one of the other comments I read about Tyler Perry's latest film, I thought this was well done. The violence in this movie is what real life is like. And though, it is not suitable for young children or "our boys and girls", there is a reason it is rated PG-13. This isn't a feel-good family and children's movie. Kids 13 and older have most likely seen equal to or more severe fighting walking through the halls of their schools (as have I). And lets be real here - your typical 14 year old freshman in high school kid is not gonna spend $6.75 on a movie called "Daddy's Little Girls", am I right? I couldn't agree more that violence is not the answer - there's no doubt about that. But Tyler Perry's movie's are known for real life day-to-day struggles and how to overcome hard times. And if I found out that a drug dealer was beating my 5 year old daughter and leaving dark bruises on her tiny back, I would feel like doing the exact same thing. I'm so tired of cheesy unrealistic movies with dull humor. Thank you Tyler Perry for these films. You are a genius!
