I like Tyler Perry - ever since I saw 'Why Did I Get Married?' (the play version and then the film with Janet Jackson) - I wanted to see Daddy's Little Girls. I ordered it, and the day it arrived I sat down with my two eldest daughters to watch it.
It made me cry, it made me laugh, and it made me happy. Yes, it was corny and cliched. Yes, it ended too soon. And some of the characters were definitely only 2 dimensional.
But for all of that, I felt it was a film that showed that black men love their kids too, can be there for them, and that love should not depend on your income or status.
P.S. Idris Elba is seriously FINE!!!!
