Daddy's Little Girls LINK


When Monty arrives at the hospital, it is revealed that Sierra accidentally started a fire and that the girls were home alone with no adult supervision until Maya rescued them. Julia follows Monty into the hospital to demand she be driven home in time to hear the Social Services representative Laurie Bell (Donna Biscoe) who was notified by the hospital, make the decision based on the circumstances, to grant immediate temporary custody to their mother, setting a date for a custody hearing. Monty drives Julia home and they part ways. Julia hires a replacement driver and Monty returns to work as a mechanic. Meanwhile, the girls face constant abuse and neglect from Joe and Jennifer.




Daddy's Little Girls



Monty is called to Sierra's school after she is caught with drugs according to the principal (Bennet Guillory). Sierra explains to Monty that Joe and Jennifer are forcing her to sell drugs under the threat of hurting Monty if she refused. Jennifer and Joe arrive and are enraged that the school contacted Monty. Joe threatens Monty during a brief altercation in the principal's office. Aware that Joe can afford a high-power attorney for the custody hearing, Monty goes to Julia for help. Julia knows that he cannot afford to hire the firm and turns him away, interpreting his actions as an attempt to use her to get custody so he can use the girls to get government assistance. Feeling insulted, Monty leaves after telling Julia to get a life and a man.


Monty (Idris Elba) is a good-hearted mechanic who works to support his three daughters: 5-year-old China (China Anne McClain), 7-year-old Lauryn (Lauryn Alisa McClain), and 12-year-old Sierra (Sierra Aylina McClain). They're living with his ex-mother-in-law (Juanita Jennings), until, at the film's start, she dies of lung cancer. Monty briefly brings the girls home to his one-bedroom apartment, but then their long-absent, excessively trashy mother Jenny (Tasha Smith) arrives, demanding custody -- not because she actually wants them, but because she wants to make Monty miserable. She and her live-in boyfriend -- drug dealer/local menace Joe (Gary Sturgis) -- gain custody of the girls and proceed to use them for various evil ends. Jenny provides Monty with an estimable obstacle while he tries to nurture his relationship with his new girlfriend, high-powered lawyer Julia (Gabrielle Union).


Once in a while, Perry's shot-making goes for broke and breaks down. In an early scene, we discover that Monty's girls have been staying with his ex's mama. She's got a nasty cough. And after she tells Monty that he must come to family court to take custody of his girls and he demurs (too much work at the garage), she tells him what's really going on. "I have lung cancer, Monty. I been hangin' on for the girls as long as I could, but I'm dyin.' I'm dyin'!" He tells her things will be all right, and she says they won't. As she does, the camera pans down for a solemn shot of the prescription pills and the ashtray full of cigarette butts on her kitchen table. There's a fade out, then a pan up for a glimpse of her casket.


Perry carves up the rest of the running time to give us horror scenes of the girls with their mother and scenes of Julia going on some embarrassing blind dates and of her mixed up in one testy disagreement after the next, either with Monty or her girlfriends, who are played by Tracee Ellis Ross and Terri J. Vaughn, both of whom are underused.


And that's exactly how Gabrielle acted when she spoke with us for this film. Laughing off rumors of a fling with New York Yankees short stop Derek Jeter, "I'm still waiting; at least if you're going to get the rumor out there, I'd at least like the memory. Like a 'Jeter something,' a t-shirt; this is the best non-relationship I've had. My mom called and wanted to know if she'd have to make one more space at the table. 'No mom, I'm not dating Derek Jeter; do you think I'd be putting this under wraps.' It's a great rumor, and he's a great guy, he's just not my guy. I wish I even had the dance; they said we were dirty dancing. I didn't even get a little nothing; this is fabulous. Next time, I'm going to try for A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez) and then I'm going to work my way down the Yankee lineup and see what happens."


How Gabrielle got this role is a little bit of a reversal from the norm. "I saw "Diary of a Mad Black Woman"; I'm a big fan of Kimberly Elise. I felt she got short changed in that film; she's carrying this film. I said, 'I want to do this.' I found out it was Tyler Perry, and just by chance, by coincidence, I happened to be sitting next to his agent on a flight - a well, thought out coincidence. I said, 'I'd love to work with Tyler, can you hook it up.' About a week later, he set up a meeting a week later, and he wrote the script for me, and we started shooting a few weeks later. We screen-tested a few men, and the only man on both our lists - I made a list and Tyler made a list - the only man on both our lists was Idris. It was a no-brainer."


In the film, Julia has to deal with Monty's kids; Gabrielle couldn't get over how crazy they were on set. "Oh my gosh, they're awesome! These girls were like little sponges, and they're so polite; they're so sweet and they're so talented. They can sing their faces off; they have this little singing group. They were just amazing, and little China is like their ring leader."


Like a lot of Tyler Perry plays, the actors were allowed to adlib. "Certainly all the stuff with the girls, we adlibbed that," says Gabrielle. "He's an actor as well, so he understands; he wasn't like, 'These are my words and you're going to say it like that.' He allowed us to create, and if the words on the page worked, great; but if the words coming out of our mouths and brains, he shot that as well."


Ms. UNION: I think it's pretty darn accurate, to be honest. I think there's a lot of things that occur within the African-American community, that we would prefer to stay within the African-American community - that we get a little nervous when you start having scenes or dialogue that we know is going to be viewed and heard on a national or global scale.


And - we had this conversation with my girlfriends - I said, oh, it's okay, so if that good man was a plumber, you'd be - would that be okay? Well, no, I mean, that's not my type. You know, and I think we get a little too caught up in the antiquated notion of who and what prince charming is that we, you know, sort of developed when we were like nine years old. It has no place in a real, adult woman's, you know, life.


The melodrama really kicks in with the girls (real-life sisters Sierra, Lauryn and China McClain) being court-ordered to reside with their unsavory mother, Jennifer (Tasha Smith, oddly operatic yet convincingly scary). Jennifer resides across town with gangster/drug dealer Joseph (Gary Sturgis) and his goons. The girls are more than just miserable: They are slapped around and encouraged to dabble in sex and drugs not by Joseph but by Mom! Warning for moviegoers: There are moments when unexpected titters might erupt in the theater.

Number of children and Number of girls: I feel as though I have at least 6 children on Saturdays when my four amazing nephews, and occasionally a couple of my adorable nieces join us for YMCA and other NYC tri-state area activities, but the truth is I have one wonderful daughter Melina Taylor Nesbitt, age 6 and my son Cheyne Alexander age 4. Finding time to ensure that both are healthy has worked well due to DLG. However, the long term influential impacts will be compounded with our time alone figuring out if she should/could do soccer in an almost all male club, if its cool that she is a girly girl yet still knows how to rough-house with the best of them; how to be compassionate but not overly emotional, and how to channel the emotions effectively through healthy practices.


Alex becomes jealous of all the attention her parents give Maxine, who is really Max turned into a young girl in "Three Maxes and a Little Lady". Meanwhile, Zeke wonders who Maxine is. In order to prevent him from discovering the truth, Harper lies to Zeke, telling him that the Russos hate him and thus he is no longer welcome in the Sub Station. Alex and Justin decide to repeat the spell in reverse to undo Maxine's existence and head to Max's karate dojo to try it, but it only makes her more cuter, which makes her furious. Maxine then tells her sensei that for her next match she would like to fight either Justin or Alex, and Alex pushes Justin on to the mat. Justin claims that he does not hit girls and is nearly knocked out until Alex uses the fly swatter spell on him, allowing him to defeat Maxine. The sensei and the crowd chastise him for defeating a girl and Justin flees. As Jerry and Theresa rush to Maxine's side, Alex mutters to Jerry that she's glad his little girl is okay and leaves.


As Alex watches television at home, Jerry consoles her with pancakes and tells her that she will always be his little girl and that Maxine just reminds him of Alex at a younger age. Meanwhile, Alex and the other Russos convince Zeke that they don't hate him anymore due to the annoying song that he sang for them, and persuades him to sing it for Maxine. 041b061a72
