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. I was told where to stand and how to dress, how to cut my hair, and what I would be doing for the rest of my life from the time that I was five years old. And ...

A little better than his others.
25 February 2012 | by freshclean-66-318608See all my reviews

I just got through seeing Good Deeds. It was a little better than the rest of his movies but not as good as Why Did I Get Married. This movie did have that same old monotonous theme the rest of his other movies have. Even with that being said this movie was as predictable as a Scooby Doo cartoon. Now that can be said about all of Tyler Perry's movies. Phylicia Rashad, Gabrielle Union, and Thandie Newton did do their thing in this movie but that still couldn't help it. I wish Tyler Perry could come up with more imaginative story lines and make movies where you would have to actually think and be surprised as to what will happen in the movie. I mean my 11 year old step daughter can write a more complex script.
