Wesley Deeds: [narration] My name is Wesley Deeds the Third. I grew up fifth-generation Ivy League graduate. I can tell you my pedigree all the way back to the tribe that my greatest grandfather came from. I was born into privilege, groomed by my father to be a businessman, to take over his company, groomed by my mother to be a gentleman.

Not Tyler Perry's worst film, but without doubt his most boring.
21 April 2015 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Tyler Perry tries to make good films and in recent films he has tried to get away from the Madea films but he's still relying on the same clichés that make his films really hard to sit through.

The main problem with this film is that it is as dull as a slice of bread. This review is going to be short because, by God, I don't remember what happened. Something about a guy not enjoying his life despite being rich. An unbelievably cliché story with unbelievably cliché characters that you have honestly seen in hundreds of other projects.

I really don't remember anything about the film so I do not remember anything that was salvageable about it, it was boring, recycled. I know a lot of people probably like this film but I just think it was one of the worst I've ever seen. If your not a Perry fan, I'd say skip it.
