Quotes

[first lines]
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.

A person finding a path they want
6 March 2012 | by (Sweden/ Australia) – See all my reviews

The premise of Good Deeds, had solid depth with some light-hearted overtones. The storyline was well paced, and easy to watch.

Thandie Newton's role had a bit of meat too it, which made the movie. Her 'simple' character pulls you in.

Great to see a relatively strong black cast (typically a tall order to deliver), and of course Mrs Huxtable!

I noted some low scores on IMDb, I would not be so fast to sweep it under the carpet. A mature look at love hides somewhere in Good Deeds.

Watching a movie about choosing the right path. Finding the type of love you want, can be good for the soul.
