Daddy's Little Girls DVD

Movie: ***; Disc: *** 1/2
Rated PG-13


Tyler Perry and his DVD producers have again put together an edition that will satisfy fans of his work. He provides a rather frank feature-length commentary where he's quick to point out little errors and the ways in which he tried to grow in all aspects of filmmaking from his last feature directing effort, Madea's Family Reunion. He obviously enjoys discussing his work and is not afraid to toss off a joke here and there, and he's gracious in singing the praises of not only the top-billed stars, but also the smaller supporting players and the crew members. That attitude extends to the three behind-the-scenes featurettes: the 14-minute "Tyler's Team: Cast and Characters," in which Perry discusses the casting process and he and the actors discuss their characters; the four-minute "Introducing the McClain Sisters," which gives a more specific focus on the trio of real-life sisters who play the girls of the title; and a two-minute segment on the rather unique technical considerations in shooting in the Georgia Aquarium. These featurettes include the expected talking head footage, but interspersed throughout them is some choice B-roll footage, such as one bit where Elba parks a car that starts rolling once he gets out of it, as well as various warm candid moments between the actors that support all the compliments being tossed around in the interviews. An extended cut of the film's church sequence, which points up how extensively Bishop Eddie Long improvised in his speech (as mentioned by Perry in the commentary) and features Judy Peters's complete, stirring performance of the song "Step Aside" (performed on the soundtrack album by Yolanda Adams), rounds out the special features in the disc.

Specifications: 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen; English 5.1 Surround; English and Spanish Dolby Surround; English and Spanish subtitles; English closed captioning. (Lionsgate Home Entertainment)
