Michael's relationships with the women in the family aren't any easier. His first daughter is boy obsessed which gets him in a very funny "boy scaring" mode. At first he
looks to scare her first boyfriend but in the end befriends the boy, even after they break up.
He has a very difficult time dealing with the fact that she is now ashamed of him
and doesn't worship him. So you might think that his youngest daughter is better? Well not exactly.
There was a great episode where Michael won't let her have a sleep over so she gives him the silent treatment. He stoops to her level and returns the silence.
Some truly funny moments follow with him trying to get her to break her silence. He even rips a fart next to her which doesn't work. In the end, he gives in and there's
a nice tender moment between the two. I almost believed that he was really her father for a minute.
All of the above scenarios only work with a great comic foil to Damon, which is played by the lovely Tisha Campbell/Martin. Yes she's the actress who was on the Fox TV show Martin with
Martin Lawrence (Blue Streak, Big Mama's House) and is married to Duane Martin (Above The Rim, White Men Can't Jump, etc.). She's funny and
attractive but still strong enough to stand up to her husband even when he gets loud and stubborn.
Overall, I like this show a lot. It's funnier than most shows of this kind. Damon is funny without acting like a clown (no pun intended). He acts like a man.
Does that make sense? If not, watch it. It's good family fun with enough edge for adults. A must see for fans of Damon's comedy act.
