Amazing Film : Thank you for delightfully surprising me (by kkuffuor)
I am "Mr.Deeds", so I can tell you right off the bat that not only is this very real - but for once my new friend Tyler finally made a respectful black film.I am going to go see this a second time in the theatre, and I will buy a copy for home when it comes out.I am very happy to say this was a great - an awesome film. Yes - black people have good jobs, are educated, and we do have normal life problems and this film reflected all of that and more.Well done!~~I have to say, again: this truly spoke to me. This is almost to the tee my particular tale, and it was a cold shiver to see it.
Great Movie! (by little_baby_90)
There are way to many negative comments about this movie for me not to comment and they show me not to judge a movie by the critics. This movie truly touched my heart and literally had me choking back tears of sadness and tears of joy. Tyler Perry created an excellent movie yet again and this is my favorite of his more serious films. The acting was great, story line kept me interested, and there is a great message behind it. This movie has helped me to see more clearly that there are people who are out that there that have it harder than me. Also, that you shouldn't live your life doing <more>
that which is expected of you but do what makes you happy and everything else should fall into place. Go see it! You won't be disappointed.

A good story well told, but probably not for the whole family. (by theeditormum)
Tyler Perry's "Good Deeds" is the first Tyler Perry movie I have seen. I saw the trailer when I went to see "Red Tails" in January, and I was intrigued. I've been eagerly anticipating opening night ever since. And talking it up until my family are sick of it.I wasn't disappointed. But first, a word of warning. I wouldn't call "Good Deeds" a family film. I may not take my teenage sons to see it — although the great lessons may win out over the questionable scenes in the end. Parents should be aware that there is significant vulgar language, <more>
especially in the first half of the film, and that there are both frank discussions of sexuality and a couple of rather intense lovemaking scenes that may not be suitable for younger children. The main character is living with his fiancée, and they are having sex before their marriage, which some people may object to.That said, "Good Deeds" is a great story. Wesley Deeds grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth and has the perfect life. Only Wesley isn't really sure it's his life, though he has buried these insecurities so deep that he isn't really aware of them anymore. His fiancée finds him utterly predictable. But they think they are in love, and their families are thrilled that they are finally going to marry. Lindsey Wakefield, on the other hand, is living in an ever-worsening nightmare. She is barely making ends meet, and from the first moment that we see her, it's clear just how precarious her situation is. And it just keeps unraveling.Lindsey works as a janitor in Wesley's corporate headquarters. They meet when she parks in his reserved spot, and there is an altercation involving Wesley's boorish brother. We see from the beginning that Wesley has a good heart, but that figuring out the right thing to do can take him some time. Wesley and Lindsey keep running into each other, but he doesn't make a significant move to help her until the day he witnesses her child being torn from her arms by a social worker. In the process of helping Lindsey, Wesley not only falls in love, but finds spontaneity and rediscovers his childhood dreams.The story rings almost true. I'd like to believe that there is a corporate CEO out there who would tolerate the kind of attitude that Lindsey displays — I haven't met one yet, but maybe. And some of the scenes are a little predictable — I saw the ending coming from the minute Wesley told Lindsey goodbye.But that's why "Good Deeds" is a good film and should be a successful one. Like any fairy tale, there is just enough fantasy about it to keep us with one foot firmly planted in reality, while the rest is realistic enough that we can look wistfully on, thinking that it would be very nice if things did work just that way.
First, the only reason I took one star away was because I felt that 2 hours wasn't enough time to tell a deeper story. This could have been Tyler Perry's fault for not writing a deeper story ... or Gary Ousdahl's fault as story editor for cutting the story too deeply.Thoreau once said, "Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them." This is so true. And sometimes in our lives, we need a coincidence to occur ... something that jars us from our predictability ... to act as a catalyst for an epiphany that will induce fundamental <more>
change.WARNING! POSSIBLE SPOILER FOLLOWS!In this film, Lindsey's chance meeting with her boss led this boss to have his own epiphany. In time, he realized as his fiancée suggested that his life was predictable ... that he'd sacrificed his personal aspirations to become what others wanted him to become. And when Wesley Deeds' epiphany caused him to change, it became an epiphany for his fiancée to realize that their marriage was destined for failure.Later, it became an epiphany for Wesley's mom ... to finally realize that Wesley had found his own path in life and was determined to follow that path. And by Wesley leaving the family business, Wesley's brother realized he had no one to sabotage anymore ... that he had to stand on his own two feet and become the man that sibling rivalry had held him back from becoming.This film was not a "man saves damsel in distress" movie. It was far deeper than that - a testament to coincidence and the importance it can play in our relationships including relationships with ourselves .Two final points. Earlier, one reviewer suggested that had Tyler Perry done more research, he would have discovered that servicemen like Lindsey's deceased husband had access to a cheap $400,000 life insurance policy - making it unlikely that she should be so much in debt. However, when a person is the recipient of a life insurance payout, and if the insurance was acquired through an employer military included , only the first $50,000 is not taxable. The remaining $350,000 is taxable as ordinary income ... and would put Lindsey in the highest tax bracket. Living in San Francisco, where the movie is set, things can get pretty expensive very quickly. And as money managers, people are sometimes compromised by grief - making them poor money managers. The IRS was after Lindsey, after all. This could have been fleshed out better - but it's nothing for which I'd take a star away.Also, near the end of the movie, Wesley's mom sees him off at the airport. Before 9/11, this was possible. After 9/11, no one gets to an airline's boarding gate without passing through security screening. And no one gets through screening without a valid boarding pass - which Wesley's mom didn't have. This "goof" has been submitted to IMDb. But, it's a forgivable goof.Until this year, Tyler Perry had a morbid fear of flying. He's never been on a post-9/11 airline flight. However, this year, he conquered his fear of flying by taking flying lessons - and is now a licensed private pilot. So, I didn't take away a star for that either.All in all, it was a most enjoyable film. However, some scenes might be too intense for children.
I found the story to be an excellent romantic struggle with an injection of dealing with family. The acting was superb and really enjoyed the supporting cast performances. The characters were believable. If you want to see a movie that takes the time to develop the characters and make you become part of the story, this is a movie to see. Tyler again delivers a great performance as well as directing this enterprise. I always have enjoyed Thandie as an actress. I feel her performance here is worth being considered for an Oscar. She made you emotionally connect with her character. I was also <more>
impressed with Brian White's performance. The interaction was realistic. It would have been too easy to fall for stereotypes. Instead, Tyler provided realistic portrayals of his characters that was both refreshing and enjoyable. While a little more than 2 hours, I could have easily enjoyed a longer effort... I hope there is an extended version.
Tyler Perry gets his deeds Right !!! (by varghesejunior)
How often do you come across a film that manages to impress you both in terms of the quality of the writing and the acting of the artists involved? How often have you left a movie theater feeling good about yourself? How long has it been since you watched a movie and realized that you could actually make a difference in someones life with what you have? I'm pretty sure that most of you will answer these three questions with the reply-'Its been pretty long since that happened to me'.And that's when a movie like this one comes along. I must admit that this is the first Tyler <more>
perry film i have seen and i am pretty impressed with the work done on this one.The storyline is pretty simple it follows Wesley deeds a rich well to do businessman who is living quite a content life, he thinks he's got it all figured out when he meets Lindsey Wakefield played by Thandie Newton a single mom who works as a cleaner on his building.As their lives cross and he witnesses the struggles faced by Lindsey, Wesley realizes the huge mismatch this world faces day after day where the rich have too much and the poor have lesser than what they need,that he can do much more with what he's got to help those around him, to help make a difference than he ever imagined.The majority of viewers may find the plot predictable but the treatment of the script is excellent while the acting is commendable the lead pair manages to keep the emotions to a level where they do not go from good to uncomfortable.In conclusion a job well done.
I look at it like this ... for a Tyler Perry movie this was a comeback. Okay some scenes were a little 'awkward' and slow, but I was impressed with this film. You can see he is trying to reset the tone of his movie making and get back to the basics of telling the story. He decided to take the lead part in this film and I think that it was a bold and precise move on Tyler's part. He had to let his audience know that he is here to stay. He is bringing his core essence of film-making that drew people to him in the first place. He is a fantastic black man who tries to cut out 'the <more>
crap' of films and just wants to display real life. He has fumbled around casting and made some 'just for giggles' films but he knows how to remind us all of just how simple we all are and how we are all connected in this game of life. If one thing we should learn from him is his insatiable need to put us all in the shoes of another person. Let's be a little more compassionate for a man who isn't afraid to pick himself up, dust himself off and keep trying ... just my little thought ;-
Delightful & Touching and brought me to tears.. (by mspowbiz)
I neglected watching this because of the bad reviews. Boy are they wrong!The characters were interesting and overall this was a truly delightful film!! I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of people who are used to seeing Black actors playing depressing, tragic or violent characters will be disappointed. Some may think Tyler Perry's role in this film was unrealistic but that's only true in their narrow world and in those narrow minds. The world is full of Black men and women doing amazing things and living pretty amazingly affluent lifestyles. Tyler Perry is only one of them. The <more>
"Deeds" character was just another one of them. There are so many more that I personally know who are pilots, doctors, lawyers, business owners, brokers, and on and on! Its too bad we don't have more films like this!! The negative ratings were wrong on this one! I learned a valuable lesson, DON'T JUDGE A FLICK BY ITS NEGATIVE CRITICISM!!! Bravo!!
