Lionsgate’s urban-skewing comedy “Daddy’s Little Girls,” the latest from hyphenate Tyler Perry, got off to a good start on Valentine’s Day, taking in $4.57 million off 2,111 locations for a per-playdate average of $2,167. Perry has been a February film standout: His last pic, “Madea’s Family Reunion,” bowed at No. 1 just over a year ago to more than $30 million, while his left-field hit “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” surprisingly hit No. 1 with more than $21.9 million in 2005. Warner Bros. romantic comedy “Music & Lyrics,” starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant, was No. 2 on Wednesday as it aimed for the date crowd: Pic played to $4.15 million off more than 2,900 theaters for an average of $1,419. Both will take on returning champion “Norbit” at the B.O. this President’s Day weekend along with “Ghost Rider,” “Bridge to Terabithia” and “Breach.” “Ghost Rider” is the frame’s widest new rollout, gunning into 3,619 theaters in a market blitz. Sony will aim to capture mostly male action auds with the Nicolas Cage starrer about Marvel Comics character Johnny Blaze, a supernatural stunt motorcyclist.
