Daltry Calhoun is a 2005 comedic drama about a ladies man who is forced to change his life when his estranged 14-year-old daughter comes to live with him. Daltry Calhoun (Johnny Knoxville) is seemingly living the good life in Ducktown, Tennessee. He is a local celebrity who sells his special brand of seed and sod to the finest golf courses in the world. His life is turned upside-down, however, when his old girlfriend, May (Elizabeth Banks), shows up with Daltry's 14-year-old daughter, June (Sophie Traub). May confides in Daltry that she is dying from cancer, and is hoping that Daltry will care for June after she is gone. Although no one knows it, Daltry's business is also starting to suffer and he has been selling things to try and keep it afloat. With the odds stacked against him, Daltry faces the greatest challenge of his life as he tries to save his business, while building a relationship with the daughter he never really knew.
