If you didn’t see Tyler Perry’s Daddy’s Little Girls, you missed a treat. I just saw this movie today, a Blockbuster DVD rental. I wish very badly that I had gone to the theatre to see this movie. We need more movies of this kind. I rank it right up there with The Five Heartbeats and Love and Basketball. Now anyone who knows me well knows that those are two of my favorite movies of this generation. These are strong family stories with messages of hardship, hope and love.
Daddy’s Little Girls didn’t do anywhere near as well at the theatres as the Madea movies, but it should have done better because it’s a movie for everybody. There are no over-the-top characters; just real people living, loving and growing through life’s challenges. If you haven’t seen this movie, go out today and rent it. You will not be disappointed.
My hat is off to Tyler Perry. He shows a sensitivity and awareness in this story that you don’t see in the Madea movies. This is a very talented man. I have to give him props! You go, Mr. Perry!
