Tyler Perry Attempts a Three-Peat with "Daddy's Little Girls"

From The Cocoa Lounge

Tyler Perry is proof that there is still a pot of gold at the end of the box-office rainbow for black films.


But the question in Hollywood as the debut of his third feature film Daddy's Little Girls draws near, is can he do it without Madea?

Tyler Perry's trademark pistol packing mama, Madea, will be missing from theaters on February 14, 2007, but that doesn't mean the audience will. With a heartwarming story tailor-made for Valentine's day; an all star cast featuring Gabrielle Union, Idris Elba, and Tracie Ellis Ross; and a strong message (ED O.G. & Da Bulldogs 1991 hit Be A Father To Your Child comes to mind), Girls has the words "date" and "movie" written all over it.

The one thing i like about tyler perry movies is madea because the movies are straight sappy without her. So he better bring madea back if he wants a lot of pepole to watch it.

i can't wait for the movie to come out.....

I hope that he can do it without Madea. I love Idris Alba, and I think that the Madea typecast will follow him, and, ultimately, send him into oblivion, if he doesn't think out the box.

Looks like he has.

I am kind of tired of Gabrielle Union playing the same roles all the time other than that I might see it if me and my man have time to come out of the hotel that weekend. ; D

I hope Tyler Perry can keep bucking the hollywood system and I will surely be supporting.

I can not wait ot see this film I absolutely love Tyler Perry's work he will definately pull it off without Madea. I seen the trailer and I think it will be a hit.

Gabrielle Fan said...

WHoever said that Gabby is doing the same role again is dead wrong. If you watched the trailer you would know it was different! I'm tired of people judging a book by the cover.

I was excited to find out that this wil be at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles. I'm visiting in Feb and will make it my bizness to check it out.

Let the man do his thing. Tyler Perry is showin he can be successful without madea and black people should support him. We already know if we don't turn out we won't see another positive depiction of black men as fathers for another 10 years.

I'm just happy that Tyler is continuin to grow in the industry. Daddy's little girls is gonna be a cool movie and I'll be there with my girl on Valentine's day.

My husband and I have been to see "Daddy's Little Girls" two times!!!!! We LOVED it!!!!! Idris Alba and Gabrielle Union had beautiful chemistry in the movie and the little girls were just wonderful!!! This was the first Tyler Perry movie we had seen. we are not fans of men portraying women in movies or any other venue. We feel that there are enough fine female actors out there who can portray the role of grandmother or mother in any movie. So, the Madea character was not to our taste. However, we LOVED this movie by Tyler Perry and we HOPE he continues to make others without the Madea character. Keep up the good work, Tyler!!!!!

I love that Idris Elba was pick for this role, because I love watching him over and over again, he is so so sexy to me, just hearing his voice and looking at his masculine built is exciting but the most lovable thing is seeing him take off his shirts and kissing, OOOOHHH I just fainted.

I am over fifty years old, a mother and wife. I purchased the movie sight unseen. I have watched this movie 5 times. Everyone gave really good performances. I always like Ms. Union, and Idris Alba is a very handsome and charimatic man. Wow!
