Tyler Perry’s 5 Best Films

Daddy's Little Girls

1. Daddy’s Little Girls (2007)

Cast: Gabrielle Union, Idris Elba, Lou Gossett, Jr., Trace Ellis Ross, Tasha Smith

In one of the few films where Tyler Perry doesn’t make an appearance, DLG tells the story of a mechanic (Elba) who falls for his attorney (Union) while trying to gain custody of his three children from his precarious ex-wife (Smith). This film was the lowest grossing Perry movies at over 31 million, but it was also his first film that erased the common idea of a “deadbeat dad.”
