Written and directed by Tyler Perry, Daddy's Little Girls follows single father and mechanic Monty (Idris Elba) as he struggles to support his three daughters and fight for full custody from their unfit mother. In need of extra funds, Monty takes on a fateful second job as a limo driver for hot-shot lawyer Julia (Gabrielle Union), granting him the legal leverage he needs as she volunteers to help him in court.

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for thematic material, drug and sexual content, some violence and language

Daddy’s Little Girls

Unfortunately, we did not have a pre-screening in our city for this movie. We hope to have a review for this film as soon as possible. However, this is the rating information from the MPAA:

Rated PG-13 for thematic material, drug and sexual content, some violence and language.

Researching classification information from Canada, the province of Alberta's film ratings office says there is, "Frequent use of cursing, profanity and vulgar expressions; infrequent use of crude sexual language and references." Manitoba's board says, "Language may offend" and that there is "Mild sexual innuendo." However, the British Columbia provincial film classification board attests that, "Daddy's Little Girls does not contain sexually suggestive scenes, nudity, or coarse language." Go figure...

As for violence, there is more agreement. The three boards we checked mention "infrequent" weapon and hand-to-hand violence with little blood, a depicted beating and a car accident. Manitoba feels the scenes "may cause a child brief anxiety, or fear."

This is a description of the movie from the studio's publicity department:

In Tyler Perry's follow-up to Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, single father Monty (Idris Elba) loses custody of his three young daughters to his corrupt ex-wife. Desperate to win his girls back, Monty enlists the help of an attractive, hard-nosed attorney named Julia (Gabrielle Union). As a garage mechanic, Monty is Julia's complete opposite, yet an unexpected romance brews.
