“What would I look like goin’ home before I know that you are capable of taking care of my newborn grandchild?” – Marion

Brief Synopsis – After his wife dies in childbirth, a man must try and figure out how to raise his newborn daughter by himself.

My Take on it – Intriguing idea that falters along the way due to the lack of originality in the story.

Kevin Hart is great in the lead role and manages to bring both dramatic and comic moments to the life of this character as he struggles to raise his daughter and also tend to his own life and work along the way.

The film has some really fun moments along the way that help accentuate the various issues that he needs to deal with as a responsible father.

The film’s supporting cast also helps immensely as  Alfre Woodard, Lil Rel and Paul Reiser each have great parts that help Hart’s character along the way.

The fact that this is based on a true story helps keep it more engaging to watch unfold.

The film might be slightly too long and they could have cut down a few of the scenes along the way to keep it tighter which in turn would have let things flow better.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Executive producer Channing Tatum was considered to play the lead role when the film was first announced in May 2015. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
