Editorial Reviews

Tyler Perry steps away from his popular character Madea to play a very different role, and the risk pays off. In Good Deeds, Perry plays Wesley Deeds, the son of a successful software magnate who's ended up running his father's company along with his undependable brother (Brian White, I Can Do Bad All by Myself). He's engaged to marry Natalie (Gabrielle Union, Bring It On) in what promises to be a comfortable but dull relationship. By chance in his office building he meets a cleaning woman named Lindsey (Thandie Newton, Crash), a single mother whose life is falling apart--and in trying to help her, he discovers that the life he's leading will never bring him happiness. Good Deeds suffers from a few overly broad strokes and stays firmly within the boundaries of the romance genre, but despite that it's Perry's most understated and layered movie. Newton is particularly good, grounding the picture in Lindsey's simmering panic, and her interplay with Perry has a lot of heart that carries the movie through some of its more fairy-tale-romance conventions. Union and Phylicia Rashad are also strong; White is a bit over-the-top, but his role is the most melodramatically written. Overall, though, Good Deeds unfolds more subtly than previous Perry films but is more emotionally engaging for it. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Touching Movie February 28, 2012
Once again, Tyler Perry delivers a story that not only focuses on a woman's Cinderella life but also includes a kind hearted man's point of view. Great performances from Tyler Perry, Thandie Newton, Phylicia Rashad and Brian White. And i'm SO glad to see Gabrielle Union on the big screen again! I can't wait to add this movie to my Tyler Perry collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! April 10, 2012
By Joyce
This is Tyler Perry's best movie. His attention to believable characters with a nitty-gritty reality to their problems creates an atmosphere of intense interest and compassion for the
characters. I can't wait to get a DVD of this film. I saw it in the theater and was mesmerized.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly satisfying, definitely a soul searcher March 14, 2012
I cried several times during the movie. I really loved the contrast between all the characters. The story telling was incredibly touching, it was delivered in a very realistic way. Incredible acting by all, loved Thandie in this, and I thought this was Tyler's best acting gig ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars self indulgence vs. empathy June 12, 2012
i love this film because it shows the realistic shortcomings of affluent western culture. Perry's role represents what this society has regarded as success-education,money and prominence. gabrielle union's character represenrs what has happened to so many american women (ala lndsy lhn etc.} life to them is self indulgence, money ,materialism and one big party with no desire for children and the dedicated joys of motherhood.rashad's character sees tyler as a success and favored son due to shallow values only.thandie newton's character is reality-in that many try very hard in life and never get the breaks to ease lifes stresses. perry has one excellent trait -that of compassion and he views thandies depressed life he also sees a person with values and appreciation of kindness and a protective and loving favorite scene in the film is when she asks deeds how much is a gallon of milk. this brings him to reality and makes him re-evaluate life.his character is what makes him a success not him money,education or prominence. ireally enjoyed whites character because he represents the failures in parenting, a basically good son ,never nutured by a mom who showed favoritism to the achieving prominent son over the son who needed emotional support and constantly succumbed to her abusive criticism. as a caucasion male i tend to prefer black film-makers over whites because white cinema shows life how they want it to be in most film while black directors tend to show the reality of life. see this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great work May 15, 2012
This was a great movie. It makes you as a person think better. I like Tyler Perry movies . People always having something negative to say about him. This man TYLER PERRY can't win from losing. He is the only man to create his own studio for his films and television shows. So, how can one be against that type of creativity. Forget about the reviews that are negative and judge for your self. Start speaking positive about ones creation and don't focus on the negative.
Thank you, This movie is great and can't wait until it hits the stores to purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, Fresh... May 8, 2012
By Morena
I don't think this film was intended to be a literary masterpiece to satisfy the masses. I will say, however, for those reviewers who do not feel Tyler succeeded in character development, if you've lived through scenes like those before you'll agree that Tyler got the job done albeit in a different way.

Phylicia a play in Atlanta I was close enough to reach out and touch her face. The woman has so much class.
Gabrielle a very fine actress.
Thandie is just gorgeous and played the role well enough
The brother was a bit much, but still believeable. I've met guys like that, certainly.

Great movie Tyler. One thing's for sure people are going to critique and they've that right. The difference is you, Tyler, are making your name count in a very big way. You've got my praise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good acting, but I didn't love the plot June 17, 2012
I understand the message the movie was trying to convey but *spoiler alert* a woman starting a relationship with a man who first tried to woo her while he was just days away from marrying his live-in fiancee is UNwise. Not my kind of happy ending.
