Product Description

A successful; wealthy businessman; Wesley Deeds (Tyler Perry) has always done what's expected of him; whether it's assuming the helm of his father's company; tolerating his brother's misbehavior at the office or planning to marry his beautiful but restless fiancAe; Natalie (Gabrielle Union). But Wesley is jolted out of his predictable routine when he meets Lindsey (Thandie Newton); a down-on-her-luck single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. When he offers to help her get back on her feet; the chance encounter with someone so far outside his usual circle ignites something in Wesley. This one good deed may finally spark his courage to exchange the life that's expected of him for the life he's always really wanted.

Amazon.com

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

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!

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.

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.

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 empathy.as he views thandies depressed life he also sees a person with values and appreciation of kindness and a protective and loving mother.my 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.

Interesting story line, well acted, a very touching and thoughtful movie. What appeared to be a fairy tale life was not, but all of that changed with one GOOD DEED!

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.

Wesley Deeds is CEO of his late father's computer software company. He was born into privilege, his entire life planned out for him. Even though he has plenty of money and material things, Wesley is just existing instead of living - going through the motions... until he meets, Lindsey.

Lindsey Wakefield is a single mother struggling to make ends meet. No money for rent, money owed for back taxes - she and her daughter (Jordenn Thompson/a very talented little girl) are stuck in a bad situation and Lindsey is seriously stressed.

Wesley (Tyler Perry) was the lead male role, but his brother, Walter (Brian J. White), left more of an impression; I was still thinking about White's performance long after the movie ended. Brian J. White sure knows how to play an unlikeable character (thinking of his role in Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself), but even though Walter had issues, he was my favorite character. At first I thought he hated women, and then I thought he just plain disliked everybody, but I think Walter had issues with himself and I think he was hurting. The man had a mouth on him, but I loved his honesty.

I know times were hard for Lindsey (Thandie Newton) and I know she was doing what she could to survive, but she was too good at lying. She was teaching her daughter to be dishonest and that bothered me. Her attitude in the beginning kept me from liking her, but she became likeable as the movie progressed.

Natalie (Gabrielle Union): As soon as the movie began I wondered why she was with Wesley if she had so many complaints about his routine. I'm glad that question was answered, because up to that point I wasn't sure how I felt about her.

Wilimena Deeds (Phylicia Rashad): She was an uppity woman who wanted everything her way.

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 Rashad...at 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.
