PG-13
Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls is a 2007 comedic drama about the struggle of a poor but decent man to provide a good life for his three daughters. Monty James (Idris Elba) works as a mechanic who dreams of going into business for himself. At the funeral for the girls' grandmother, Monty's ex-wife Jennifer (Tasha Smith) shocks him by demanding that the girls live with her now. Deciding to fight for custody, Monty realizes that he needs to make more money, so he begins working as a driver for a wealthy attorney named Julia Rossmore (Gabrielle Union). Sparks fly almost immediately between Monty and Julia, but she has difficulty living with the modest financial circumstances of Monty's life. She decides to help Monty fight for custody of his daughters, but refuses to become involved with him romantically. Ultimately, though, her feelings begin to overwhelm her and Julia must decide whether it is more important to be with a man who is successful or a man who loves her.moreless
